The Subaru Ascent was designed for comfort and safety so we decided to try it out

The 2020 Subaru Ascent: The biggest Subaru ever

What’s a better way to learn about a car than driving it yourself? We couldn’t think of anything, so we decided to get behind the wheel of a brand new Subaru Ascent.

We got some first-hand experience with all of the SUV’s features alongside Dorian Madison, of Peltier Subaru in Tyler. Check out the video above for a total behind-the-scenes (or rather, behind-the-windshield) look at our experience.

For Subaru, it’s all about family, and it’s all about safety. So when they created their largest SUV they kept both in mind.

The Ascent’s come with third row seating and the option for either a bench or captains chairs in the second row, fitting a total of 7 or 8 passengers. There are multiple USB charging ports throughout the car, so multiple people can charge multiple devices at a time. And there are 19 cup holders….yes, 19 total cup holders so every passenger’s beverage has a safe and secure place to enjoy the ride too!

The safety features are pretty incredible, too! The Ascent comes with EyeSight Driver Assist Technology that includes Automatic Pre-Collision Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, and more.

But our favorite part was all of cameras. In addition to a back up camera, the Subaru Ascent’s cameras will give you 360 degrees of visibility.

There is a Front View Monitor that displays a 180-degree view of the front of the car on the interior display by using a camera located in the front grille.

And then there’s the Smart Rear View Mirror which displays a view from behind the car from a camera mounted above the rear gate glass, when activated. So basically, your rear view mirror to show a complete view of what’s behind your car! This feature benefits the driver in poor visibility to the rear of the vehicle due to passengers or cargo blocking the view.
