The new 2018 Subaru Ascent coming soon. The auto market for bigger cars is turning more and more aggressive with time. Subaru has chosen to make big improvements since 2014 and join the hard competition again. The manufacturer will want to dispatch the Subaru Ascent sooner than later. Even though the name Ascent was not confirmed by the manufacturer at first they have now released the official name which is 2018 Subaru Ascent 7 Seat SUV. The car will be released in 2018 and it will be the ideal 7-seated family SUV.
This is a first SUV Subaru has made since cancelling the production of Tribeca after eight years in 2014. The upcoming model of 2018 Subaru Ascent will be released exclusively for U.S market. But will most likely spread for the worldwide sale due to an already high demand.
2018 Subaru Ascent – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious Interior Design
So the new Subaru Ascent is going to be a little bit boxy shape but with a spacious interior. And it is as said fit for seating up to seven persons, on its three-push seat arrangement. An interesting thing about the vehicle is that it comes with plenty headroom and legroom space as well. It is going to have a range of brand new innovative gear like updated infotainment system and a wide touchscreen. The interior comfort will have amazing leather covered seats that can be customized.
What is officially know from Subaru already is the dimensions of the new Subaru Ascent 7 Seat SUV. The exterior dimensions measure 79.9 inches in width, 72 inches in height and a certainly gigantic 204.7 inches in length. To put those measurements in perspective for you, we could compare that this Subaru is a half-inch longer than a Chevy Tahoe.
The standard features in the new Subaru Ascent will most like be the navigation system, premium sound system with AM/FM satellite radio. Also, the Bluetooth sound connectivity, CD/MP3/MP4 player, USB port interface and of course smartphone integration.
Some of the security features in the new 2018 Subaru Ascent 7 Seat SUV are going to be an adjustable cruise control, backstopping sensors, airbags, and of course seat straps. There will be also a programmed crisis stopping mechanism, line-takeoff cautioning system, blind side monitoring systems and non-freezing stopping devices.
2018 Subaru Ascent – Engine and Performance
The 2018 Subaru Ascent is still not confirmed if it will come with their standard all-wheel drive. And a with the automatic transmission as usual for Subaru, but these are to be expected. Also, the exact engine alternatives are still not known. It seems most likely that the Subaru Ascent 2018 will get power from a turbocharged flat-four engine, perhaps the 250-hp 2.0-liter unit that is also found in the Forester 2.0XT. We would not be shocked if it is also offered with its 3.6-liter flat six engine or even a gasoline or maybe electric hybrid drivetrain. Subaru has been developing its International Platform with such alternative powertrains in mind.
2018 Subaru Ascent – Price and Release Date
We are expecting to see the new Subaru Ascent unveiling sometime next year, as 2018 model sales will be starting before the end of 2017. Pricing should be competitive with similar three-row SUVs. So, the amount of a base price is the low of $30,000s and rising up to just a little short of $50K.
