Subaru ruled LA with its world debut of the Ascent three-row SUV, the largest Subaru ever. Built on the same latest global architecture as the new Impreza, the Ascent comes with a choice of seven or eight seats and an all-new turbocharged 260 horsepower boxer engine driving all four wheels through an updated Subaru continuously variable transmission.
The company’s gone all-out with family friendly design details, including 19 cup holders…On a long 2,890mm wheelbase, the Ascent boasts 4,346 litres of passenger volume, plenty of cargo room, and rear doors that open out by 75 degrees to ease access to the third row. Sitting on standard 18in wheels, the Subaru Ascent should manage fine off-road with 220mm of ground clearance.
