2021 Subaru Ascent for Sale in St. Louis

For your family travels around the St. Louis area or for longer road trips, few three-row SUVs match the overall excellence in the new 2021 Subaru Ascent, which is only entering its third year on the market and sees some nice upgrades. With loads of standard safety features, a safe and comfortable setup for your passengers and all your cargo and updated Subaru tech, the 2021 Ascent is a great choice for the family on the go.

What's New For 2021?

Even though the Ascent is still the newest addition to the Subaru lineup, offering this selection its only three-row SUV, there are still some nice upgrades for the 2021 edition. The standard Subaru EyeSight safety suite adds adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning, giving you even more driver aids that are included in the base level. Also standard are adaptive headlamps that turn along with your steering wheel, helping to give more visibility around corners and turns. Finally, the second- and third-row seats come with seatbelt reminders to ensure all your passengers remain safely buckled up while you're on the go.

Performance and Capabilities

While other three-row SUVs tend to offer multiple powertrains, the 2021 Ascent smartly sticks with a single engine that works for your travels. Under its hood is a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder, producing 260 horsepower with 277 pound-feet of torque. The turbocharger in that engine makes the Ascent fairly efficient for a vehicle of its size, earning up to 27 mpg on the highway, which is all the more impressive when you consider the standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive that's equipped. That AWD system improves your traction and control when weather gets tough around St. Louis and Ballwin, or if you have to head off the beaten path. Finally, when properly equipped, the new Ascent can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

Safety and Technology

Four different trim levels, including the well-equipped base model, give you several options for the new Ascent. You start off with a standard infotainment touchscreen command center with smartphone integration, Bluetooth and a six-speaker sounds system. Moving up to the higher trims will add upgrades, such as a larger touchscreen, a Wi-Fi hotspot, keyless entry, a power rear liftgate, navigation, ambient interior lighting, a 120-volt power outlet and heated and ventilated front seats.

Those handy tech features and options are joined by the standard Subaru EyeSight suite, along with other helpful driver aids you can add to the mix by choosing a higher trim level of the new 2021 Ascent. The base level safety features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and keeping assist and adaptive cruise control. Choosing a higher trim will add blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, while the top-end Touring edition adds parking sensors.

Trim Levels

While lots of the best qualities and features, like all-wheel drive and EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, are built into every Subaru Ascent, drivers will have four trim levels to choose from, and, in order of price from low to high, they are:

  • Ascent
  • Ascent Premium
  • Ascent Limited
  • Ascent Touring

As you move up in price, more features come standard or are available, so the Ascent Premium adds features like Wi-Fi connectivity, the Ascent Limited adds leather-trimmed upholstery and more, and the Ascent Touring has everything you could ever want in a car.
