The 2019 Subaru Ascent was recently named one of Kelley Blue Book’s (KBB) 12 Best Family Cars.

The 2019 Ascent embodies that reputation and will make a great vehicle to take on adventures with your friends and family.

The Ascent is packed with performance, safety, and technology features that you would expect from a luxury brand. The Subaru Ascent offers flexible seating arrangements for up to 7 or 8 passengers with ample cargo space and extra compartments so you have room for everyone’s gear.

Safety Features and Driver Assists

The Pre-Collision Braking feature can brake fully if needed, bringing you to a complete stop in an emergency situation. These safety features alone have reduced rear-end crashes with injuries by 85%.

Also, available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert will warn you of traffic crossing behind you while backing up.
