According to preliminary information, the price of a large 7-seat crossover Subaru Ascent, equipped with new turbocharged direct-injection engines, will be 35000-50000 dollars. Which is comparable to the cost of the main competitor in the US market of Volkswagen Atlas .
The new Subaru Asquent will enter the assembly line of the Subaru plant in Lafayette, Ind., In early 2018, and mark the return of Subaru to the midsize SUV class following the withdrawal of the Subaru Tribeca model in January 2014. Whether there will be a new crossover Subaru Ascent in Russia to speak while early … we will wait 2018.
The crossover Subaru Ascent Concept is the end result of a team of Japanese designers who have honed the cosmic appearance of the novelty with the name Dynamic X Solid (dynamics and integrity), starting with the 2013 Subaru Viziv Concept and the Subaru VIZIV-2 Concept 2014, Subaru VIZIV Future Concept 2015 and Subaru VIZIV -7 SUV Concept presented in the fall of 2016.
At the heart of the new large crossover of the Japanese company is the newest Subaru Global Platform, which, by the way, is built a new generation of models of the Subaru Impreza family and the third generation of the compact crossover Subaru XV .
