Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Subaru Ascent isn’t another quirky hatchback-wagon-crossover thing—it’s a mainstream hit and Subaru will be better for it.

Pros
Smart, family-ready interior
Standard active safety features
Good value at affordable trim levels
Good infotainment system
Willing powertrain with standard all-wheel drive

Cons
Sometimes nervous throttle
Seats could stand to be a little wider
No hybrid powertrain—yet
Top trims may not justify the price

The 2019 Subaru Ascent is available in base, Premium, Limited and Touring trim levels. Base models offer good value, especially with driver assistance features, but the Premium adds more of today's desirable features, such as heated seats and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The Limited classes things up with leather upholstery, while the Touring maxes out the Ascent's luxury, convenience and safety features

PROS
Seats up to eight passengers
Cargo room and third-row space are near top of the class
Generous set of standard driver safety aids
Can tow up to 5,000 pounds

CONS
Subaru CVT automatic not too impressive in other models
Some more common driver aids are restricted to upper trims

Subaru prepares another ascent into the three-row-SUV market.

After axing the seven-passenger Tribeca in 2014, Subaru is preparing to re-enter the three-row, mid-size crossover SUV segment. With the Viziv-7 concept—the name Viziv stands for “Vision for Innovation”—the Japanese automaker provides our best look yet at what’s to come.

Measuring 204.7 inches long and sitting on a 117.7-inch wheelbase, the Viziv-7 is some 15 inches longer than Subaru’s Outback, and its wheelbase is more than nine inches greater. The Viziv-7 also is larger than most mainstream three-row, mid-size crossover SUVs. While the Buick Enclave, the Chevrolet Traverse, the Dodge Durango, and the Ford Flex ride on longer wheelbases, the Subaru’s overall length is greater than all four. Additionally, the Viziv-7’s 79.9-inch width and 72.0-inch height (73.2 inches including the roof rails) are tops among today’s segment offerings. Needless to say, if the Viziv-7’s dimensions carry over to the production vehicle, Subaru’s new SUV promises to dwarf the other models in the lineup as it attempts to move far beyond the cramped Tribeca

We believe the production vehicle will go by the name Ascent, given that Subaru recently registered that moniker with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Spy photographers recently caught Subaru testing its new three-row crossover, and along for comparison was both a Mazda CX-9 and a Ford Explorer; like them, we expect the Ascent to offer a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, although the 3.6-liter six-cylinder boxer engine that’s optional in the Outback is also a possibility. We’ll know more in the coming months, as Subaru says its production three-row crossover will enter our market in early 2018.

Toyota has finally joined the booming city SUV segment, with a high-riding Yaris available with petrol or hybrid power.

Pros
Roomy cabin and cargo hold
Long list of advanced safety tech
Relatively fuel-efficient
Can run on regular unleaded

Cons
High price compared to most rivals
Long-ish emergency braking distance for such a small and light car
Base-model's halogen headlights could be better

Pros
Hybrid stuff works well,
some interesting ideas here

Cons
Pre-prod car's ride not great,
occasionally sluggish performance
