2022 Subaru Ascent Trims & Specs

The 2022 model lineup consists of four trim levels starting with the Ascent base model and followed by the Premium, Onyx Edition, Limited, and Touring. All four trims are powered by the same turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four engine, which develops 260 hp. Power is sent to all four wheels via a CVT transmission. The base model gets features such as LED headlights with auto-leveling functionality, 18-inch alloy wheels, and roof rails on the exterior. The interior gets tri-zone climate control, a 6.5-inch infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and adaptive cruise control with forward emergency braking. Premium models add features such as 4G LTE internet and blind-spot monitoring with lane-change assist and rear cross-traffic control. Onyx Edition models add 20-inch alloys, blacked-out exterior trim, a panoramic moonroof, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated steering wheel, and special interior trim and upholstery. Limited models get power-adjustable front seats with heating, as well as heated rear seats, leather upholstery, keyless entry, and automatic braking. Touring cars add navigation and a panoramic sunroof, amongst others. Upper trims also benefit from leather seating and a few extra safety features such as a 180-degree front camera.

🚘What's the Price of the 2022 Subaru Ascent?

You can't go wrong with finding a used model for sale at a low price, but if you're looking to buy new, you'll be glad to hear that the Subaru Ascent's price isn't that steep and has not increased for the new model year. The base model starts at an MSRP of $32,295, which does not include tax, registration, and a destination fee of $1,125. The Premium model will set you back $34,795, the new Onyx Edition costs $37,995, and the Limited comes in at just under $40k with an asking price of $39,595. The top of the range Touring will set you back $45,445. These prices place the Ascent next to the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander in base trim, but both those brands ask more for their top-trim cars, making the Subaru an attractive choice.

🚗What 2022 Subaru Ascent Model Should I Buy?

The great thing about the 2022 Ascent is that all trim levels are offered with the same drivetrain and much of the same safety equipment, which makes the purchasing decision a whole lot easier, as you only have to worry about convenience features. While the base model might offer a fair amount of the basics, we feel that to truly be a comfortable and capable daily family runner, the Ascent needs to provide slightly more, and that's why we would suggest going with the next best thing: the Premium. This car manages to keep the price low at $34,795, but adds a whole lot of gear that is not found on the base model. Notable inclusions are a driver's power-adjustable seat, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, second-row climate controls, and an eight-inch infotainment system. You also get 4G internet connectivity as well as blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic assist. This is a good deal for the amount of money you're going to spend. We'd add the Convenience Package for added comfort on a relatively tight budget.
