Spacious Seating For Up To Eight Passengers

Second-Row Captains Chairs

Second-row captain’s chairs are available for extra comfort, easy access to the third row, and space for up to seven.



The standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system in the 2023 Ascent is designed to optimize traction in rain, snow, on bad roads, or even when there’s no road at all. It constantly evaluates acceleration, braking, and cornering in real time to continuously deliver power to all four wheels. If a wheel slips, power is instantaneously transferred to the wheels that have the most grip.

8.7 Inches Of Ground Clearance And X-MODE

Conquer rough terrain with 8.7 inches of ground clearance and standard X-MODE, which optimizes the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system for maximum traction on slippery surfaces. X-MODE also incorporates Hill Descent Control for stability and confidence when descending more difficult grades. Dual-Function X-MODE is now available for the 2023 Ascent with Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud modes for even greater capability.


Stability And Control

With its exceptionally balanced layout, Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive delivers a solid connection with the road and an engaged, responsive drive. The entire system lies along the centerline of the vehicle, balancing weight distribution between the two sides to help provide optimal performance and control.

Fuel Efficiency And Durability

With gas mileage up to 26 MPG** and over 500 miles of highway driving range the 2023 Ascent delivers competitive fuel efficiency. Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive has demonstrated its durability and low maintenance over four decades of owner-tested Subaru vehicles so you can be confident your Ascent will be your fuel-efficient SUV for all the miles ahead.

What Engine Powers the 2023 Subaru Ascent?

Standard equipment for all 2023 Ascent trim levels is a turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four Boxer engine. The horizontal, opposing position of the cylinders instead of the vertical, in-line position most manufacturers use gives the engine the name Boxer and provides greater stability by lowering the center of gravity. The engine itself gives the Ascent a useful 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with an intelligent Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that drivers have the option to control with standard steering wheel paddle shifters. Top-tier handling and traction are provided by Subaru’s legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system with X-MODE function. The X-MODE function for the Ascent intuitively coordinates throttle control, vehicle dynamics control, hill descent control, and transmission shift points to provide the best possible traction and handling no matter the weather or type of road.

What’s New for the 2023 Subaru Ascent?

The 2023 Ascent distinguishes itself from the previous model years with upgraded front and rear fascias. The front fascia boasts a bolder appearance with a more pronounced grille and LED headlights within redesigned headlights. The lower section of the front fascia supports the bold look with a more aggressive bumper cover featuring low-edge air ducts, enhancing the Ascent’s underbody aerodynamics. The rear fascia features recreated C-shaped taillights pronounced further by sharp lines that give it a more modern, sleek appearance. Standard exterior features include raised roof rails, 18-inch alloy wheels, power windows/door locks, a backup camera washer, and power Crystal Black Silica side mirrors. Beginning at the Premium trim, body-color side mirrors with integrated turn signals are standard equipment. Inside the 2023 Ascent, new features include the 11.6-inch StarLink Multimedia Plus touchscreen, three-zone automatic climate control, 19 cupholders, wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a multi-function display, and more. Stepping up to a higher trim level will get you heated front seats, power-adjustable front seats, navigation, a heated steering wheel, a power panoramic sunroof, second-row climate controls, and more.

Is the 2023 Subaru Ascent Safe?

As we mentioned above, Subaru’s are well-loved by families because of the safety they provide. The 2023 Subaru Ascent keeps families safe on their travels with the latest Subaru EyeSight driver aid technologies. This intelligent safety system has been upgraded for the 2023 model year for more seamless operation even under inclement driving conditions. The EyeSight system for the 2023 Ascent provides its widest field of view yet with additional sensors, a new electronic brake booster, and updated control software. The 2023 Ascent adds a wide-angle mono camera that syncs with EyeSight’s dual-camera system, which widens its field of view to sense pedestrians and cyclists earlier than ever as the Ascent approaches an intersection at low speeds. When this happens, the driver will be alerted with visual and audio alerts and, if necessary, will automatically apply the brakes. Ascent models that come with blindspot monitoring with rear cross-traffic warning and lane-change assist now come with automatic emergency steering, which will steer the Ascent back into its lane to prevent a collision with vehicles in its blind spot. A 360-degree surround-view camera is also newly available for the higher Ascent trim levels, providing an overhead view of the Ascent and its surroundings by combining images from four of the vehicle cameras. This allows drivers to safely exit and enter a parking space with ease.
