Versions and Standard Amenities


There are four trim levels to choose from with the 2020 Ascent: the base, Premium, Limited, and Touring. A robust 2.4-liter turbocharged engine that produces 260 horsepower and 277 pounds-feet of torque joined to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) forms the powertrain for each of them, and all-wheel drive comes standard. Some highlights of the base trim's list of standard features are power-folding side mirrors, tri-zone automatic climate control, automatic headlights, and cloth upholstery. If you upgrade to the Premium you'll also get an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, second-row climate controls, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter. There are a few options you can add, such as push-button ignition and a power rear liftgate. If you plan to do some towing, this trim will be able to pull up to 5,000 pounds.


The Limited trim is outfitted with leather upholstery, heated second-row seats, and a heated steering wheel, and the amenities that were optional on the Premium are included as standard features. A panoramic sunroof can be included to add to the ambience. At the top of the heap, the Touring contains all of the above, plus a power-adjustable passenger seat. This trim's second row comes standard with a pair of captain's chairs, meaning that its total seating capacity is seven, not eight.



Safety Ratings and Equipment


The '20 Ascent has been heralded as a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). While it hadn't been rated as of this writing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), last year's model was awarded five stars overall. Each trim comes with the Subaru EyeSight system of advanced driver aids, which includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, lane departure and sway warning, and lane keeping assist. The Premium trim packs on blind-spot detection with lane change assist and rear cross-traffic alert. Reverse automatic braking can be included as an option, but it comes standard on the Limited and Touring trim levels along with high-beam assist.




The base trim receives an infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth capability, satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Premium and Limited both get an 8-inch touchscreen, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and two USB ports each for the first and second rows; integrated navigation is optional. The Limited trim is eligible for a high-end 14-speaker Harman Kardon audio system; the Touring trim receives the upgraded audio system, integrated navigation, and a 120-volt power outlet as standard amenities.
