2020 Subaru Ascent Overview

The Ascent was all-new in 2019 as Subaru’s biggest vehicle. It replaced the long-defunct Tribeca as a three-row option in the brand’s lineup. Because it’s so new, we don’t expect any major updates for 2020. There will be a new rear-seat reminder system that helps prevent leaving kids and other items in the vehicle after it has been parked.

Every Ascent gets a turbocharged 2.4-liter engine that produces 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque through a continuously-variable transmission. All-wheel drive is a Subaru hallmark and is standard on every model.

All but the base model come with blind-spot monitors, lane change assist, and rear cross-traffic alerts, while the top two trims also get high beam assist and reverse automatic braking. Inside, the Ascent gets either a 6.5- or 8-inch touchscreen, both of which run Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A Harman Kardon premium sound system is available.

The Ascent competes against the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander. Pricing for 2020 will start at $31,995.
