The Ascent was the first SUV of the Subaru brand to feature a three row interior with base trims featuring available seating for right, thanks to second and third-row bench seating. This midsize SUV contains 153.5 cubic feet of interior passenger volume, allowing each row to have a lot of breathing room. When you fold in the rear seats, you find up to 47.5 cubic feet of cargo volume with a total of 86.5 cubic feet in total behind the front rows. If you prefer to have more additional space for smaller cargo items, you can opt for certain trim levels which feature second-row captain's chairs. These chairs cut the seating down to seven with a row down the middle, excellent for long-distance road trips outside Westfield, NC.


The standard powertrain of the Subaru Ascent gives it a great deal of capability and efficiency. Underneath the hood, you will find a standard 2.4-liter 260-horsepower turbocharged engine with standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive and X-MODE® for added traction control during the rain in Ararat, NC. The 2021 Ascent also features Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) and Hill Descent Control (HDC), with most trims offering a standard towing capability of 5,000 lbs.


When the Subaru Ascent first debuted, it was one of the first cars from  Subaru to offer EyeSight® Driver-Assistive Technology as a standard feature. The 2021 Ascent keeps this suite of preventative safety features and offers a few upgraded features. The Adaptive Cruise Control Feature now changes to Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering. The safety features also now include a rear seat reminder system in the second and third rows, alerting you if one of your passengers in these rows remains unbuckled.

The Subaru Ascent features new LED Steering Responsive headlights (SRH) as a standard feature, which was previously available on the 2020 model. LED fog lights come standard on select trim levels, along with a handy windshield wiper de-icer for the freezing rain.
