Full-size SUVs fill an important niche in the automotive market, serving as a solid alternative to the classic family minivan. They offer outstanding storage space, plenty of room for passengers, all the information, convenience, and entertainment technology you want, and performance that even the best minivan can't match.

It's no wonder that drivers across Dover are looking to these big vehicles as their next family-hauler. Subaru is here to answer this call with the latest model of the Ascent. What can drivers expect from this wonderful full-size SUV? In this review and breakdown, let's look at what sets the 2019 Subaru Ascent apart from other vehicles in its class and where you can go to take a test drive.

2019 Subaru Ascent

The Subaru Ascent is brand new this year, making its debut on the scene of a competitive field. It comes with standard seating for eight or for seven passengers if you opt for second-row captain's chairs. It's got tons of room for passengers and storage and it comes with standard all-wheel drive-something few of its competitors boast.

Finally, it has a new turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that gives you 260 horsepower with 277 lb-ft of torque, attaining an EPA-estimated 23 combined MPG. It can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, and with an 8.7-inch ground clearance, it's also very capable as an off-roader. It's a standout SUV that covers everything you could possibly want, whether it's family transport or an off-road adventure wagon.

Trim Levels and Options

The new Ascent offers four trim levels from which to choose: base, mid-range Premium and Limited, and top-of-the-line Touring. At the base level, you get features like split-folding second- and third-row seating for control over your storage space and tri-zone automatic climate control for comfort at all levels. Entertainment comes in the form of a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM smartphone integration, six speakers, and satellite radio.

You'll also get Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology at the base level. This suite of active safety features gives you a virtual copilot that offers systems like front-crash warning and mitigation, Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, and more. When it comes down to it, few competitors offer this kind of safety at the base level.

Stepping up the trim level gives you a breadth of additional features ranging from heated mirrors, an upgraded 8-inch touchscreen with Wi-Fi hotspot, enhanced EyeSight® features, panoramic sunroof, cooled seats, Harman Kardon® 14-speaker sound system, and even a 120-volt household-style power socket-all designed to build to a truly luxurious driving experience.

Comfort and Space

The new Ascent offers up to 86.5 cubic feet of cargo space with all the seats folded down, making it unlikely you'll ever run out of room for luggage or whatever gear you need to haul. Even in the third row, passengers will have almost 32 inches of legroom, putting the Ascent solidly in line with competitors in the full-size SUV field. Overall, one thing is clear: There's tons of space for comfort and storage.
