It’s annoying only that the serial version of the new Subaru crossover was not so extravagant and bright as the prototype of the Subaru Ascent SUV Concept , shown in the spring of 2019 at an auto show in New York. Ready to stand on the factory conveyor crossover Subaru Askent looks somehow simple and even fresh. The design of the exterior of the body of the novelty, as they say, without a zest, and, frankly, do not cling at first sight. In short, a large crossover with classic proportions and a discreet appearance.
The front part of the body is solved in the corporate style of Subaru and flaunts a powerful hood, supplemented by an original relief, compact LED headlamps, a neat trapezoidal falshradiator grille and a solid bumper with a slit of the lower air intake in the center and stylish inserts with eyelets on the LED fog lamps on the sides.
On the side, the flagship Subaru demonstrates the classic silhouette of a large crossover: a long hood, a flat roof line, large doors, excellent punches, visually increasing the already large wheel arches, powerful forage, compact front and rear overhangs.
The rear of the body is completely devoid of personality. There is a large tailgate with a spoiler over the glass, large sections of side lights with LED filling, joined together by a chrome bar, a massive bumper with a powerful protection of unpainted plastic and two trunks of exhaust nozzles.
Resistant to small damage plastic is protected not only the rear, but also the front bumper, the edges of wheel arches, thresholds and the lower edges of the side doors.
Salon of the new crossover Subaru Ascent is by default 8-seater with a landing formula of 2 + 3 + 3, but as an option it is possible to order individual captain’s seats for two passengers of the second row, thus turning the saloon into a 7-seater. It is interesting that due to the impressive wheelbase dimensions of 2890 mm and the second-row seats moving along the salon, even in the third row of the gallery there is enough space for comfortable accommodation of 3 passengers.
Comfort when landing on the last row is promoted by doors opening at an angle of 75 degrees, and the seats of the second row, shifting forward with a simultaneous inclination of the back.
The luggage compartment of the 5 meter crossover is capable of taking a little more than 2050 liters. When the seats of the third and second rows are transformed, a flat floor of the luggage compartment is formed.
The interior is designed quite simply, as they say without frills and extra tinsel, but everything is in place. The ergonomics of the driver’s seat at the height: an informative instrument panel with a color screen of the on-board computer, a compact multifunctional steering wheel, a comfortable chair with moderate lateral support, a monumental central console with a complete set of modern equipment located logically and correctly. Passengers are also taken care of: three-zone climate control and 7 airbags, separate ventilation ventilators in the second and third rows, 19 bottles and coasters all over the cabin, a 120-volt socket and 8 USB connectors are standard.
There is a proprietary security system from Subaru, called EyeSight, with a pair of front cameras located on the windshield and providing the crossover with adaptive cruise control, an automatic braking system and the ability to follow the markings.
At the choice of buyers of the novelty are two multimedia systems with color screens of diagonal 6.5 and 8.0 inches, the driver’s and front passenger’s seats with mechanical adjustment and heating or with electric drive, heating and ventilation, heating the steering wheel and second-row seats, a rear-view camera or an all-round visibility system, a seat or cloth or leather trim, halogen or LED headlamps, 18-inch or 20-inch alloy wheels with 225/60 R18 or 245/50 R20 tires.
