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

cushy ride quality,
every model comes with driver assists.

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