All-New 2019 Subaru Ascent SUV Drops Second Teaser Ahead Of LA Debut 21

Subaru will unveil their 2019 Ascent three-row SUV at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show next Tuesday, on November 28.

Dubbed the first full three-row SUV from Subaru, according to the Japanese automaker, the Ascent is “family-sized, versatile and capable.” In a way, it’s also the spiritual successor to the Tribeca.

Of course, the best comparison you could make would be with the Ascent Concept, unveiled earlier this year in NY. The concept itself was based on a previous design study, called the Viziv-7, and featured flared fenders and a large bluff grille in front.

We’re happy to tell you that those flared fenders are definitely there on the final product as well, judging by what we can see in this latest teaser image. Also, the headlights seem a tiny bit smaller than on the concept, but their overall design is similar.

If the production model will be the same size as the Ascent Concept, it will measure 198.8 inches (5,049 mm) in length, 78.3 inches (1,989 mm) in width and 72.4 inches (1,839 mm) in height – making it almost as large as a Chevrolet Traverse.



2019 Subaru Ascent Teased For LA Auto Show 14

The Los Angeles Auto Show is less than two weeks away and Subaru has announced plans to introduce the 2019 Ascent at this year’s event.

Set to become the spiritual successor to the slow-selling Tribeca, the crossover was previewed by a concept at the New York Auto Show earlier this year.

Unfortunately, the teaser image doesn’t reveal much about the production model as it only shows the crossover will have an upright tailgate, a black rear bumper, and wraparound taillights. We can also see brushed aluminum trim and a small Ascent badge.

Subaru has been relatively tight-lipped about the model but it will be a three-row crossover that is based on the company’s global platform. The Ascent will be built in Indiana and the concept implied the model will measure 198.8 inches (5,049 mm) long, 78.3 inches (1,989 mm) wide, and 72.4 inches (1,839 mm) tall with a wheelbase that spans 117 inches (2,972 mm). If those numbers hold up, the Ascent would slot in between the GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Traverse.

Performance specifications remain unconfirmed but the model is expected to use a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces around 300 hp (223 kW). Given that is a crossover and a Subaru, all-wheel drive will obviously be part of the package.

Remember the original Subaru Tribeca SUV? Gosh, it was an odd-looking thing with front-end styling that resembled a flying urinal on wheels. It was a design miss-step from a largely conservative company.
