The New Subaru Ascent Brings the Best Subaru Characteristics to the 3-Row SUV Class in St. Louis

Last year drivers were introduced to the new Subaru third-row SUV at our Ballwin dealership, with much to love. This year, we proudly offer the new Subaru Ascent with just two updates: Rear Seat Reminder and a power rear gate lock function for further convenience. This third-row SUV offers space for the whole family and cargo, while offering all of the features Subaru drivers appreciate and more. We invite you to browse our inventory online, explore further Subaru specials and incentives and welcome you to speak with our auto finance or sales team to schedule a test drive and discuss options to purchase or lease the new Subaru Ascent!

What facets will endear the Subaru Ascent to all manner of car shoppers?


As the largest Subaru yet, the Ascent comes with seating for eight, or seven with second-row captain's chairs, and the room so that everyone remains comfortable and not cramped. Plus, the cabin is versatile and incredibly easy to switch around depending on your passenger or cargo requirements as you can fold down the rear two rows for up to 86.5 cubic feet of cargo room.

On top of interior cargo room, the Subaru Ascent has the design and power to allow for towing trailers up to 5,000 pounds, which is great for campers, and it comes standard with raised roof rails if you want to store kayaks or other adventure gear outside the cabin.


One way the Subaru Ascent hopes to change the automotive landscape is by delivering the best safety features to every driver, which is why the EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology package comes standard. This package includes:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Lane Departure and Sway Warning
  • Pre-collision Braking
  • Rear Seat Reminder


An all-new model deserves an all-new engine, and that's just what the Subaru Ascent got with the 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER® engine that comes in every trim level. With 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque, the Ascent won't turn back from tough road conditions, but part of that has to do with the world-famous Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive that also comes standard.

In addition to these systems, the Ascent comes standard with Hill Descent Control, which helps when driving on trails, and Active Torque Vectoring, which improves handling around corners.


It's nice to know that those safety features are looking out for you at all times, but they're only part of why relaxing is supremely easy in the Subaru Ascent. Its other standard and available features include:

  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto
  • Ventilated seats
  • Cold-weather package
  • Panoramic moonroof
  • Power rear gate
  • 120-volt power outlet
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi Capability
  • Tri-zone climate control
  • ...and so much more!

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.
