When Subaru launched the Ascent three-row SUV for the 2019 model year, it was immediately met with a deluge of praise. It earned a 5-Star Overall Safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a Superior Front Crash Prevention distinction from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety — the organization’s highest rating. It even received a Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS.

Now, Subaru is shedding some light on the upcoming 2021 model, revealing its starting price and brand-new standard features.

How much the Ascent costs

Towards the end of June, the automaker revealed that the 2021 Subaru Ascent will start at $32,295 — a $300 increase over the outgoing model year. That puts its MSRP a fair amount lower than competitors like the Mazda CX-9, Toyota Highlander, and Buick Enclave. Not to mention, the slew of new standard features, a powerful engine, and tons of safety tech more than make up for the minor price bump.

A bundle of features

If there’s one thing everybody knows about Subaru as a brand, it’s that it makes incredibly safe, reliable vehicles. That’s why each and every Ascent is now equipped with an expanded version of the remarkable EyeSight Driver Assist Technology suite. This updated collection of safety features now includes Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering Technology and Lane Keep Assist, in addition to award-winning features like Steering Responsive Headlights with High Beam Assist and the reassuring Second- and Third-Row Seat Belt Reminder.

If that’s not enough, the Ascent is also every bit as capable as you’d expect from Subaru. Every model comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive and X-Mode® with Hill Descent Control. Additionally, the 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER® engine puts out 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque, ultimately enabling the SUV to tow 5,000 pounds.

While Subaru has yet to announce an official launch date for the 2021 Ascent, it’s exciting to think about the slew of accolades it will receive once it finally hits the road.
