Design Features

One look is all it takes to know that the Subaru Ascent is a special vehicle. Its powerful styling and 18-inch alloy wheels show that it's ready for adventure, but the excellence goes beyond mere looks. The latest Subaru Ascent Certified Pre-Owned vehicles come with LED Steering Responsive Headlights. Not only do these provide exceptional visibility on straightaways, but they track in the direction of your turn to make navigating corners at night safer. Available LED fog lights can further improve visibility, while an optional panoramic moonroof makes the interior feel even more spacious. Later models of the Subaru Ascent provide more interior volume than most other midsize SUVs. The standard second-row bench seat allows the Ascent to seat up to eight passengers, though you can also choose a seven-passenger arrangement with second-row captain's chairs. Whichever you choose, passengers will love the overall interior volume. There is plenty of cargo volume behind the third row, and raised roof rails can give you even more space. If you don't have all the seats filled with passengers, the flat-folding 60/40-split second and third rows make configuring interior space easy, giving you even more cargo space, which can accommodate longer items.

The Subaru Ascent features intuitive technology

Other Amenities

Space plays a big role in the overall comfort of any vehicle, but there's more to it than that, and the Subaru Ascent has much more. In later models of a Certified Pre-Owned Ascent, the standard tri-zone automatic climate control includes vents in all three rows, allowing driver and passengers alike to be comfortable. For extra comfort, add heated and ventilated front seats and heated second-row seats! Technologically, the Subaru Ascent is quite impressive. The entry-level models include a STARLINK® Multimedia Plus system, which allows you to connect your mobile device to the vehicle, through Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. You'll also get a standard six-speaker audio system. Higher trim levels mean that you'll get even better technology; from an 8-inch touchscreen with voice control to a fourteen-speaker Harman Kardon® Quantum Surround Sound audio system!

Rainy streets are no problem with standard all-wheel drive in the Subaru Ascent

Safety Features

It's fair to say that we all know a little bit about wet streets here in Salem. Certified Pre-Owned models of the Subaru Ascent are perfectly suited to the rainy season in the Pacific Northwest, thanks to their standard all-wheel drive system. This feature is an expensive upgrade in many competitors, but it comes standard in every Subaru Ascent. This is just one of the many safety features that help protect you and your family. Subaru is dedicated to making every drive safer, and it shows. Subaru is frequently earning awards for its safety systems, and later models of the Subaru Ascent have earned perfect five-star overall safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)!

Standard driver assistance technology helps keep your family safe in the Subaru Ascent

Driver Assistance Technology

Most Certified Pre-Owned models of the Subaru Ascent are equipped with EyeSight®, a suite of cutting-edge driver assistance features. And EyeSight® has seen a few updates in recent years. Pre-collision braking and lane departure/sway warning are usually standard, and later models now have advanced adaptive cruise control with lane centering. This version can also help steer and keep you in the center of the lane. Available driver assistance features like blind-spot detection, lane change assist, and rear cross-traffic alert make accidents even easier to avoid in recent Subaru Ascent models.

The Subaru Ascent is powerful enough to tow up to 5,000 pounds

Performance and Handling

Under the hood of a Certified Pre-Owned Subaru Ascent, you'll find a turbocharged BOXER® engine that generates an impressive amount of horsepower and torque. That means faster acceleration, and a hefty towing capacity, so you can bring trailers, boats, or other large cargo along for the journey. This engine is paired with a Lineartronic® CVT automatic transmission for smooth shifting and impressive fuel efficiency. If you prefer to grab the gears yourself, the transmission on some Ascent model years include an 8-speed manual mode, some complete with paddle shifters! The all-wheel drive for which Subaru is famous does more than just make the Subaru Ascent safer on wet roads; it also gives it the ability to go places that other SUVs would think twice about. With its impressive amount of ground clearance and standard off-road features, the Subaru Ascent is a midsize SUV that's ready for full-sized adventures. While the Ascent performs wonderfully on dirt roads, it's also smooth and responsive on city streets. The four-wheel independent suspension and Subaru Global Platform contribute to your driving experience. Even the engine helps reduce the noise and vibration that would leave you fatigued after a lengthy trip.

Great Value

A Certified Pre-Owned Subaru Ascent offers a lot, and it provides remarkable value. A Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is priced lower than a new model; and with their rigorous 152-point inspections, refurbishments, and Subaru-backed warranties, they'll give you years of high performance with confidence. You'll get all the extra space, AWD power, and cutting-edge driver assistance technology at a price that's surprisingly low. While reading about the Subaru Ascent might be exciting, there's nothing that quite matches experiencing one for yourself.
