The biggest Subaru ever.

The 2021 Ascent is built for your biggest family adventures, with three rows of flexible seating for seven or eight passengers, standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, and up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity. Standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology gives you an extra set of eyes on the road and the confidence that your family is safe and protected.

8.7 Inches of Ground Clearance and X-MODE®

Conquer rough terrain with 8.7 inches of ground clearance and standard X-MODE, which optimizes the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system for maximum traction on slippery surfaces. It’s a combination of capability features the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, and Ford Explorer can’t match. X-MODE also incorporates Hill Descent Control for stability and confidence when descending more difficult grades.

Standard on: All models

5,000-Pound Towing Capacity

The Ascent offers the most towing capacity of any Subaru vehicle ever, along with an available Class III trailer hitch, 277 lb-ft of torque and a wide selection of racking accessories so you can bring along all the gear you’ll need for all the places you’ll be able to go.

Standard on: Premium, Limited, and Touring

High-Strength Steel Frame for a Quiet Ride

The Ascent is engineered with a high-strength steel frame, which provides rigidity, long-lasting quality, and a quiet cabin. The Ascent platform is designed to provide exceptional crash safety, a quiet interior, and excellent driving feel — now and for years to come.

Standard on: All models

Adaptable for any family adventure.

With its choice of passenger configurations and seating designed for versatility, the Ascent can adapt to almost any combination of people and up to 86.5
cubic feet of cargo. That’s more cargo space than the Honda Pilot,
Toyota Highlander, or Mazda CX-9.
