Families would definitely love the upcoming 2024 Subaru Ascent, especially with the development on the cabin space and the all wheel driving system as the standard. Not to mention that there would also be lane keeping assist, auto emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control as the standard features for improved performance. The only change taking place to the new Ascent would be the Onyx Edition, which is inspired by Premium seven seat model with passive entry (with push button start), rear auto emergency brake, and black out exterior components.
The Redesigned Work
Redesigned project is considered necessary because the overall design and style of the Ascent are worn-out. Despite its still looking nice appearance, it looks outdated when compared to its rivals. Base trim level and Premium come with 18 inch of wheels while the Touring, Limited, and Onyx are offered 20 inch of alloy wheels. All of them have taller roof rails and LED lighting (steering responsive) for the standard features.
For the interior cabin, it would be comfortable, plush, and spacious. The company would elevate the fabric and materials, making it more convenient. For instance, the Onyx Edition and Premium have water repellent upholstery and stain resistant cloth. With three row seatings, the cabin should be spacious, but the main issue is the back row with limited space. It would be only ideal for kids and petite teens, not big and burly adults, especially the tall and big types.
Powertrain and Performance
The 2024 Subaru Ascent is said to run with H-4 turbo unit with 2.4 liter capacity, generating 260 ho and 277 Nm of torque. This would be coming together with CVT LInearTronic and standard all wheel driving system.
Because of the arrangement, the 2024 model is capable enough to reach 60 mph within 6.9 second, covering a quarter mile within 15.5 seconds with 130 mph for the top speed. Braking efficiency can be supported by brake assist and ABS, while Brake Override System can be used to prevent abrupt acceleration while limiting pedal input acceleration at the same time.
The Price Range
For the base trim, the Ascent would cost around $33,000, which already includes destination fee, registration, and taxes. The Premium would cost around $35,000, while the new Onyx Edition is $38,000. The Limited would cost around $40,000 while the Touring, which is the highest trim level of the lineup, would cost $45,500.
