Subaru of America Inc. today announced pricing on the 2024 Ascent, its award-winning 3-row SUV. The Ascent offers a spacious interior with flexible seating options and an impressive list of standard safety, driver assist, and in-vehicle technologies. Available in six trim levels - Base, Premium, Onyx Edition, Onyx Edition Limited, Limited and Touring - the 2024 Ascent arrives in Subaru retailers this fall.
The 2024 Ascent comes standard with the latest version of EyeSight Driver Assist Technology. The enhanced system operates more smoothly and in a greater range of conditions. These improvements are a result of a wider field of view, updated control software, and the addition of an electric brake booster. Also standard across the model line is a Wide-Angle Mono Camera that works together with the EyeSight system's stereo cameras.
Models equipped with Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert include Automatic Emergency Steering, a safety feature that works in conjunction with the EyeSight Pre-Collision Braking to help the vehicle avoid a collision when traveling at speeds slower than 50 mph.
Cabin Connect is available on trim levels equipped with the Harman Kardon(R) QuantumLogic(TM) surround sound speaker system. The convenience feature amplifies the driver's voice to the third-row occupants for improved communication inside the vehicle.
For enhanced all-around situational awareness while parking, an available Surround View Monitor offers a 360-degree overhead view of the vehicle. The system uses images from four vehicle cameras and combines them to create a single image for a bird's-eye view of the area around the entire vehicle.
The Onyx Edition(s), Limited, and Touring come standard with dual-function X-MODE(R) featuring SNOW/DIRT and DEEP SNOW/MUD settings. The additional settings optimize all-wheel-drive performance for difficult weather or road conditions.
The Ascent continues to be one of the manufacturer's most awarded vehicles since its debut in 2019. The 3-row SUV received the 2023 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) TOP SAFETY PICK+ award. This marks the sixth consecutive year Ascent has earned an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK (2018-2023).
The 2023 Subaru Ascent also earned top marks with a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
For three years running, the Ascent has the lowest 5-Year Cost to Own in its class according to Kelley Blue Book. The Ascent is top ranked in its class, according to MotorTrend.
