2021 Subaru Ascent: New Features for Houston SUV Shoppers


 When it first appeared two years ago, the Subaru Ascent came with high expectations. This was, after all, the first three-row Subaru SUV since the Subaru Tribeca. And they hit it out of the park; the 2021 Subaru Ascent is better in every way - not just compared to its predecessor, but to a lot of what's currently on the market. If you're looking for a new family SUV in the Houston area, it's time to visit Gillman Subaru Southwest!

2021 Subaru Ascent Details

The first advantage to new Subaru SUVs like the Subaru Ascent or even the compact Subaru Crosstrek is standard all-wheel drive. It's helped further in this case by a great powertrain that has a 260 horsepower engine paired to a CVT that simulates the feel of an eight-speed automatic, and includes a paddle shifter.

There's seating for eight passengers, each of whom has plenty of leg and elbow room. There's also three-zone climate control so everyone stays comfortable. There are 19 cup holders, plus other storage cubbies. And you've got options for transporting your stuff, since cargo volume ranges from 17.8 to 86.5 cubic feet, and towing capacity comes in at 5,000 pounds.

2021 Subaru Ascent Safety and Special Features

Safety features are always important, but they take on added urgency in family vehicles. Good news: Subaru EyeSight™ ensures excellent safety. Better news: it's improved this year with reverse automatic braking, blind-spot monitoring, and a front-view monitor in addition to legacy features like lane departure warning. This year also sees the addition of seat belt reminders in the second and third rows, and the addition of adaptive headlights with automatic high beams as standard equipment.

Your Subaru dealer serving Houston will show you more optional features, but there's still plenty more standard equipment to cover. That includes an AM/FM/CD stereo, Bluetooth, four USB ports, and standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

Buying a 2021 Subaru Ascent

As you can see, you're getting a lot of SUV for your money.
