The latest Ascent receives a handful of new standard features for 2021. These include LED headlights that turn with the steering wheel as well as automatic high-beams. The Touring model also adds another leather upholstery option: Slate Black with silver stitching. And as if the Ascent's incessant beeping notifications weren't annoying enough, all models now have a seat-belt chime that's meant to remind second- and third-row passengers to buckle up.

Pros
Flexible seating configurations,
cushy ride quality,
every model comes with driver assists.

Cons
Apathetic passing power,
noisy engine during hard acceleration,
third row smaller than some rivals.

A very competitive posh crossover, but it fumbles some of Audi's traditional strengths.

Pros
Lots of equipment and tech,
practical,
striking to look at

Cons
The powertrains,
HMI and materials aren't as polished as Audi's norm
