2022 Subaru Ascent

Seating up to eight in comfort, the Ascent is the largest SUV yet released by Subaru. But a spacious cabin isn't the only advantage this model offers to larger families. With its blend of advanced technology and highly respectable fuel economy, it makes daily driving duties both enjoyable and affordable. We now have the latest 2022 Subaru Ascent available for test drive, and here are just some of the reasons we recommend booking an appointment.

Powertrain and Performance

As one of Subaru's larger vehicles, the Ascent benefits from a powerful engine that propels the hefty frame with ease. Each model in the lineup is supplied with a 2.4L turbo flat-four making 260 horsepower and 277lb-ft of torque, passed through a continuously variable transmission (CVT) to all-wheel drive as standard.

This configuration delivers a zippy and responsive drive, with the 2022 Ascent racing from 0-100kmh in around seven seconds. But perhaps just as importantly for everyday use, the high torque levels translate into an impressive towing capacity of up to 2,449kg, a highly useful figure for when the maximum 2,435L of interior cargo space just isn't enough for your stuff.

Family-Friendly Fuel Economy

For such a large and powerful family vehicle, the 2022 Ascent returns some pleasingly frugal fuel consumption figures, with an official highway rating of just 8.7L / 100km. Outside of the hybrid sector, it's hard to imagine a three-row SUV beating this fuel economy performance.

Interior Comfort and Infotainment Tech

In its standard format, the Ascent can seat up to eight passengers. However, the second row bench seat can be upgraded to dual captain's chairs which reduces the capacity to seven but adds extra comfort. Other interior options include a panoramic sunroof, soft leather upholstery, and heated seats in every row.

Infotainment is accessed through a touchscreen display that measures 8" in all but the entry-level trim, with smartphone compatibility offered as standard through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Bluetooth is standard along with a Wi-Fi hotspot facility and multiple USB ports spread between the rows, while in-built navigation is a valuable optional extra. And lastly, the standard six-speaker audio can be upgraded to a high-end, 14-speaker Harman Kardon system that guarantees crystal-clear sound throughout the passenger cabin.

Active Safety and Driver Assist Features

The generous amount of technology also carries over into the suite of active safety and driver assist features included as standard or as upgrades. Key highlights include:

- Forward visibility camera.
- Forward collision warnings and automated emergency braking.
- Rear emergency braking.
- Lane departure warnings with lane keep assist.
- Adaptive cruise control.
- Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.
- Adaptive auto high beams.
