Ascent concept promises Subaru’s return to 3-row crossover segment

The concept features aggressive lines, bulky fender flares and beefy tires. The production model will be available with a seven or eight seat layout. “This concept looks confident, courageous, capable and in command. Three full rows, and every inch is Subaru.” Inside, there’s a more premium looking, two-tone interior that features a striking multimedia system in the center and what appears to be a digital dashboard. With three rows, the concept can seat seven passengers. The center row has captain’s chairs while the third row is a three-seat bench.

Key Takeaways:

  • Dubbed the Ascent, the three-row crossover, shown in concept form on Wednesday, puts Subaru of America back in a segment it abandoned in recent years.
  • The concept features aggressive lines, bulky fender flares and beefy tires. The grille stays in line with that of other models in the brand’s lineup.
  • With three rows, the concept can seat seven passengers. The center row has captain’s chairs while the third row is a three-seat bench.

“Subaru of America, erasing the Tribeca from the minds of U.S. consumers who shunned it, will again have a seat at the bustling three-row crossover table.”
