Subaru has debuted its all-new Ascent seven-seater SUV in LA, ahead of the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The Ascent, with the largest body size in the Subaru line-up comes in seven- or eight- passenger configurations, both with “ample interior space”.
The all-wheel drive vehicle will be powered by an all-new 2.4-liter Boxer direct fuel injection turbo engine and rides on Subaru’s Global Platform. According to the brand, this new platform has increased body rigidity which suppresses vibration and noise, for enhanced driving comfort.
In addition, the Ascent comes with Subaru core technologies such as standard EyeSight driver assist and X-Mode to enhances the SUVs capability.
The all-new Ascent will be built at Subaru’s US plant in Indiana and be available to the North American market in 2018, however Subaru Southern Africa says that it will consider local introduction if and when a right-hand drive model is introduced globally.
