The 2020 Subaru Ascent: Versatile, Family-Friendly, and Rugged

However, the new Ascent distinguishes itself from others on the road with its rugged design, impressive performance, and innovative safety that are expected of Subaru models.

What's New for the 2020 Subaru Ascent?

The 2020 Ascent gets an upgrade for more convenience and security. The Ascent now comes with power-folding side mirrors as well as a standard rear-seat reminder alert system. The 2020 Ascent is part of the 2019 Ascent generation, but with these additional features, the Ascent strikes an even balance for Crestwood drivers to enjoy.

2020 Ascent Features


The new 2020 Ascent comes with a standard STARLINK™ 6.5-inch Multimedia Plus system. This system features standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, allowing you to get directions, make and receive phone calls, and enjoy your favorite music. Pandora® integration also comes standard so that you can enjoy streaming music while on the go. Some of the other technology features that you will find for select Subaru Ascent models include:

  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi capability
  • Harman Kardon Quantum Surround Sound audio system
  • STARLINK® 8.0-inch Multimedia Navigation
  • Second-row Climate Controls
  • Dual Front, Second- and Third-row USB Ports


Power and efficiency are carefully balanced with the Ascent's 2.4-liter DOHC turbocharged engine that produces 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. The Ascent also comes with a standard Lineartronic® CVT that features Adaptive Control, Auto Vehicle Hold, and an eight-speed manual mode with paddle shifters. The combination of the engine and transmission allow for up to 27 MPG on the highway and 21 in the city. The Ascent can also tow up to 5,000 pounds, allowing you to bring along a small camper or boat for your next adventure in the Shelbyville area. Some of the standard stability and traction features that come with the Ascent include:

  • Hill Descent Control
  • X-MODE®
  • Active Torque Vectoring
  • Trailer Stability Assist
  • Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive


The new Ascent earned the highest possible rating for front crash prevention from the IIHS and top marks from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, so you can count on it being an exceptionally safe vehicle. The innovative EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology comes standard for the Ascent, giving you the confidence, awareness, and convenience that you need on the road. When the IIHS studied EyeSight®, they found that it helps to prevent up to 85% of rear-end collisions that result in an injury. Through the use of two dual-color front-facing cameras and radar sensors, EyeSight® warns drivers of possible dangers and will even act automatically if a collision is imminent to reduce or avoid damage. The safety features that come with EyeSight® include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management
  • Pre-Collision Braking
  • Lane Keep Assist and Sway Warning
