Mid-size, With Full-Size Designs on Adventure, 2019 Subaru Ascent is Already Looking to Become the New Definition of the Family SUV for the Cleveland Area

The interesting thing? The latest new Subaru SUV isn't even on the market yet. But your seasoned traveling nearest-and-dearest needn't worry. The 2019 Ascent release is fast approaching, and you can already learn all you'd like to know about what it has in store for everyone right here at Ganley Subaru of Bedford!

Right out the gate, Subaru Ascent is set to appear in four go-anywhere trims -- a base, step-up Premium, luxurious Limited, and a fully loaded distance-goer, Touring. The new mid-size SUV will also be the first from our "Confidence in Motion" namesake to offer three rows for seven to eight passengers in a huge interior that, under an equally enormous available 54-inch power tilt/sliding panoramic moonroof, burgeons up to 153.5 cubic feet. Better yet, approximately 86 cubic feet of that is on deck for cargo with rear seating collapsed.

Now, factor in handy under-floor storage, along with easy access to your haul via an optional power rear gate. Consider standard raised roof rails for extra gear. Note a towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds, great for lugging along anything from a pop-up tent camper, watercraft, a pair of dirt bikes, or a snowmobile duo to a light RV, camping trailer, or even a second car. Of course, these aren't to mention the availability of a Class III trailer hitch and a selection of optional Thule racking accessories as wide as your travel prospects. It's plain to see: for larger families on the go, the new Ascent promises to be the right choice.

The new SUV will be tough, too, built on the new Subaru Global Platform and comprised of high-strength steel, making it a model of longevity for your excursions. Ditto for capable over diverse terrain and through foul weather. A turbocharged 260-horsepower SUBARU BOXER engine, torque output at 277 pound-feet, standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a wheel slip-reducing X-MODE®, and ground clearance at a towering 8.7 inches help make sure of that.

Finally, it's the safe bet. Not only is Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology standard throughout the lineup, making possible everything from safe distancing and emergency braking to course maintenance with intelligent feedback, Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert also remain an option for situational awareness. The same goes for LED Steering Responsive Headlights, which cut through dim conditions to help you envision your surroundings around corners. Plus, a trifecta of available cameras can provide a panoptical view of what's nearby -- one in an optional Smart Rear-View Mirror, another Rear-Vision Camera that comes standard, and a third, one that's 180-degree front-facing.

And, if all this wasn't family-friendly enough, Subaru rounds out its offering with even more to make everyone's trip a pleasure cruise.

First, STARLINK Safety and Security services not only let you call for assistance when you need it, perform remote functions, and more. New for 2019, you can also enjoy the convenience of remote engine start and climate control, accessible via smartphone, as well as a STARLINK Safety and Security Plus Concierge service that can help with navigation, social activities planning, and scheduling appointments for auto service.

Secondly, the celebrated SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia infotainment system returns in higher trims in an optional 8-inch touchscreen variant offering built-in, voice-activated navigation powered by TomTom for help getting from point A to point Anywhere. Plus, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, extending smartphone access to the dash, and with available Wi-Fi connectivity, it's easy to stay connected to civilization on the unbeaten path.

Needless to say, we're eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new 2019 Subaru Ascent. Eager to get your family's name on the list to discover it firsthand? Perhaps you'd just like to learn more about all a new Subaru has to offer the whole gang. Either way, you're welcome to get in touch or stop by and see us here on Broadway Ave. in Bedford!
