Subaru Ascent name confirmed for upcoming seven-seat SUV

Subaru Ascent SUV Concept Makes World Debut At The 2017 New York International Auto Show +VIDEO

The most interesting thing about the Ascent concept is its seating arrangement; there are only two seats in the middle row, while the rear bench houses three.

Subaru has been without a three-row SUV since it pulled the plug on the Tribeca in 2014.

Also important to note is that the Ascent Concept is slightly smaller than the Viziv-7, measuring 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.

Models like the Dodge Durango, Buick Enclave, and Ford Explorer will be the ones going up against the Subaru Ascent.

Subaru unveiled the Ascent concept at the NY auto show, now underway, giving us some clues of its new three-row-seat model. For the ongoing NY event, the company has made a decision to tone down the concept and rename it "Ascent" to provide a more accurate preview of the namesake production vehicle coming next year.

Subaru has confirmed that their upcoming 3-row SUV will be called the Ascent, and that it will feature an all-new turbocharged direct injection boxer engine, just like this concept.

Subaru says that the Ascent will go into production and is to be built on a modified version of the Subaru Global Platform that debuted a year ago. The dashboard, with its metal and full leather wrapping, is likely to switch to more plastic, though the core layout will probably stay much the same.

Subaru will build the Ascent at its Lafayette, Ind., plant and the crossover will be sold only in the North American market, starting in 2018, the automaker noted. Other details will be released closer to the on-sale date.
