2020 Subaru Ascent Specs

Subaru Ascent

Despite its relatively bare-bones specification levels, the base Ascent is still an ideal trim option for a family looking for an affordable eight-seater SUV. It’s not necessarily devoid of features either, coming standard with keyless entry, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, a six-way manually-adjustable driver’s seat, and even tri-zone automatic climate control. A 6.5-inch touchscreen, AM/FM stereo, and six-speaker sound system cover infotainment, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto managing smartphone integration. Subaru’s EyeSight driver assist technologies are all standard as well, supplementing the Ascent’s rearview camera and other passive safety features.
