2021 Subaru Ascent near Central LA Has Room for the Whole Family

The 2021 Subaru Ascent near central LA is the largest SUV the company has ever built. It stands out among the crowd of midsize 3-row SUV/crossovers due to its standard all-wheel-drive and competitive pricing.

Buyers of 3-row SUV/crossovers are spoiled for choice because there are just so many out there. However, along with the standard AWD, its generous standard features (which include a ton of safety items) and strong resale values, put the Ascent at an advantage over its competitors, especially when compared with the Chevy Traverse and the Ford Explorer.

The Ascent ditches the traditional 6-cylinder engine in favor of a strong, turbocharged 4-cylinder that delivers good horsepower as well as decent fuel economy. And family-friendly safety features flourish, such as an alert system reminding the driver to check the rear seat before leaving the vehicle. This kind of clever thinking makes the 2021 Subaru Ascent near central LA an ideal 3-row/8-passenger SUV.


A good compromise of energy and fuel economy, the 2021 Subaru Ascent's turbocharged 4-cylinder engine puts out a strapping 260 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque, which is aligned with similar midsize SUVs. It makes easy work of getting up to interstate speeds and won't run out of get-up-and-go on grades, curves, or passing.

Straight-line driving is relaxed and comfortable. The interior is quiet, and the seats have perfect support for long drives. Visibility is generally good in all directions, while the A-pillars are narrow enough to make room for a larger glass area, allowing the driver to see more at the front corners.

The 2021 Subaru Ascent near central LA also has sporty tendencies in its handling, steering, and braking. On winding roads, quick reactions make this 3-row SUV feel nimble, like a much smaller vehicle. Braking is equally good - responsive without being touchy, and no mushy pedal feel.

Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system includes the off-road-enhancing X-mode, as well as hill descent control and active torque vectoring. It's an excellent set up, and Subaru has tons of expertise in this area.


Some competitors offer only basic driver assistance features as standard. Subaru's EyeSight® is in each and every model. This package includes automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure and sway warning, and a head-up display warning. Upgrades include blind-spot monitoring, reverse automatic braking, rear cross-traffic assist, and a front-view monitor.

This uncomplicated but valuable standard feature operates by detecting if either of the rear doors has been opened and closed within 30 minutes of the following three situations: starting the car, the vehicle is running and stationary or the engine is turned off and back on again with the rear doors remaining closed. An easy to hear tone and reminder message in the top display panel remind the driver to check the rear seats before exiting the vehicle.


Adventurers will love the 8.7 inches of ground clearance and the standard roof rails on the 2021 Subaru Ascent near central LA. The SUV attitude is enhanced in the top two trims with fog lights, lower-door cladding, and chrome accents. The top-of-the-line Touring models add side mirrors in satin silver, chrome door handles, and a chrome skidplate up front.


The 2021 Ascent has a welcoming interior that's also very practical, with seating for up to eight occupants. For the driver, controls are easy to reach and use. Amenities include 3-zone automatic climate control (standard), heated seats, and a panoramic moonroof. Seat materials are either cloth, spill-repellent cloth, or leather.

The third row is easy to access, thanks to doors that open wide, and a pleasantly low step-in height. There's enough knee room for kids, but it's tight for taller adults - 2nd-row passengers may need to slide their seats forward.

The cargo area has a wide opening that makes loading less of a chore. A powered tailgate is also available. There's even some storage under the load floor where the cargo area cover can go when it's not in use. The rear seats fold totally flat if the second-row bench seat is chosen instead of the second-row captain's chairs. When it's folded, a bit more than 86 cubic feet of cargo space is created. 

The 2021 Subaru Ascent near central LA comes in four trim levels: Base. Premium, Limited, and Touring, and is an outstanding option for buyers looking for a new crossover/SUV.
