2021 Subaru Ascent near Denham Springs LA is Perfect for Active Families

Has your family outgrown your trusted compact crossover SUV? It's time to move up to the 2021 Subaru Ascent near Denham Springs LA for three rows of comfort and loads of cargo space.

Compact SUVs are great for zipping around town for errands, shuttling children to practices and lessons, and getting away from it all every once in a while. But as your family grows, its needs change, and you may be at that point where you realize your current vehicle just doesn't cut it anymore. Enter the Subaru Ascent. With full-time AWD and the best safety and driver assist features, the newest and biggest Subaru is a great midsized crossover.

Having debuted in 2019, the Ascent hasn't changed much since its inception. It's a good looking SUV both inside and out. Depending on your choice of seats for the second row (bench or captain's chairs), seven or eight passengers can be accommodated. Unless you opt for a minivan, you can't get much more room! And truthfully, a minivan isn't as versatile as the 2021 Subaru Ascent.


2021 Subaru Ascent near Denham Springs LA: Seating Options

Both the second (bench) and third row seats split 60/40; perfect for loading stuff while still having room for everyone on a family trip. A tall adult or teenager will fit in any row, meaning children will have plenty of room in the way back third row.

The 2021 Ascent has a maximum cargo space of 86.5 cubic feet, which beats the Honda Pilot and the Toyota Highlander. Behind the third row there's an okay amount of 17.6 cubes but roof rails come standard across the lineup so packing cargo that doesn't fit inside is a cinch. There's also a cool storage compartment underneath the cargo floor!

Just like all of the vehicles (except the BRZ sports coupe) Subaru makes, the 2021 Ascent comes factory equipped with symmetrical all-wheel-drive and 8.6 inches of ground clearance. When you want to get away from it all, the Ascent can get you there, really away from it all! For family adventures out in the wild, Subaru knows what it takes, and the Ascent won't let you down.

When you're driving on pavement in normal conditions, the same AWD system sends power to all the wheels simultaneously. When conditions change, the AWD makes adjustments as to how the power is delivered, and to which wheels. No matter what the weather does, the 2021 Ascent remains stable and secure on the road thanks to its balanced design of the engine and drivetrain.

The 2021 Subaru Ascent near Denham Springs LA also comes standard equipped with X-Mode on every model. When X-Mode is on, it automatically uses lower gear ratios to improve traction control, increase power, and adjust/apply the brakes when necessary. This will help the driver move over slippery surfaces, maneuver steep descents, and climb hills with no added stress.

What about just normal everyday driving, such as grocery shopping or the workday commute? The Ascent will take on highway surfaces as easily as it takes on rough surfaces. Subaru put a 2.4 liter direct-injection turbocharged 4-cylinder engine in the 2021 Ascent, and it puts out 260 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque to get you up to speed quickly. There's a CVT for smooth acceleration, but an 8-speed manual mode let's you pretend you're driving a stick, should you feel the need.


Prices for the 2021 Subaru Ascent near Denham Springs LA begin at around $33,000 for the base trim, which includes a long list of standard features. Next is Premium, then Limited, and finally the top tier Touring, which begins at about $45,000 and has a ton of extra safety and comfort features.
