2019 Subaru Ascent design- Interior and Exterior
The all-new Subaru Ascent is built on a revised version of their Global Platform. It is slightly smaller than most of similarly-priced Ford competitors but does have the aura expected of an 8-seater. Further, when compared to the Forester, Subaru has made the SUV sharper, aggressive and much more modern.
The SUV’s interior is well laid out and it can seat 8 people as standard. Subaru even claims that they have gone the extra mile to make the SUV dog-friendly. Some of the features include three-zone climate control, standard EyeSight driver assistance suite, 19 cupholders, 8 USB charging point with a 120-volt power outlet in the rear center console and 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Higher variants come with a 8.0-inch display, and on all but the base has an option, a pair of captain’s chairs in the second row at no extra cost.
