2019 Subaru Ascent is the new seven-seat SUV of this Japanese car maker. As an announcement for the new model, it served the same concept. This concept was presented at the 2017 New York Auto Show in April. Subaru now has a full-size seven-seat SUV in its offer. Namely, the emptiness that resulted from the abolition of the Tribeca SUV will fill the new Subaru Ascent.
As is well known, the concept version of this model was shown at the beginning of 2017. However, the serial version, that is, the production model will be presented in December 2017. 2019 Subaru Ascent will be able to meet and cheese crowd at the LA Auto Show, which takes place from 1-10 December.
Ever since, it’s known that the new model will be manufactured at Subaru’s Indiana plant in the United States. Production at this plant was announced for 2018. The same year, the Subaru Ascent 7-seat SUV will appear on the US market.
2019 Subaru Ascent Specs
The future Subaru Ascent was built on the Subaru Global platform. This platform is also used by other new generation companies. This new platform provides significant improvements to vehicle performance compared to previous models. More specifically, it enables increased torsion strength, noise and vibration reduction, and a lower center of gravity. Also, there is an increase in comfort, less tilt of the curve, and improved safety.
According to earlier reports, the 2019 Subaru Ascent is larger in size than the departed Tribeca model. Ascent reminds us that Ascent is in the form of a concept 5050 mm long, wide 1990 mm, 1840 mm high and has a wheelbase of 2970 mm.
For now, the biggest unknown is what will be found under the hood of an SUV. Current information suggests that it will allegedly be offered on the US market with two gasoline engines. The same sources mention the possibility of the Subaru Ascent Hybrid version of the model.
It is expected that Ascent will come with a standard all-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission. When supply units are concerned, only assumptions remain. One of the solutions could be a 2.0-liter unit with 250 hp, found in the Forester 2.0 XT version. In addition, there is the option of installing a 3.6-liter flat-six engine.
With this model, Subaru wants to offer something completely new. Subaru Viziv Performance Concept will be used as the basis for vehicle design. This concept is an indication of the company’s new design vocabulary, which will be used for new models.
What is certain is that the 2019 Subaru Ascent will get the front, which is recognizable for Subaru models from this segment. All the rest can only be misled.
The future Ascent SUV should help achieve the company’s goal of increasing the number of vehicles sold in the crossover SUV segment. At the same time, the new model should be distanced from Tribeca SUV, whose cessation of production is conditioned by poor sales. The market wants a reasonably priced three-row SUV.
For now, the possible price of a vehicle is just an inclination. The price of the price is designed on the basis of known parameters and confirmed data. According to some predictions, the price for the base 2019 Subaru Ascent will be around $ 30,000. A version with the highest level of equipment could reach up to $ 50,000.
