2021 Subaru Ascent near New Iberia LA is Ready for Anything

The 2021 Subaru Ascent near New Iberia LA is their largest SUV, a family hauler that's well-equipped, roomy, and ready for anything! It's also amazingly affordable for its size and features.

Although the abilities of the Ascent may be a bit utilitarian, the cabin quality is outstanding for the price, the ride is smooth and comfortable, and you get a lot of features with the Premium trim for around $35,000. Even the base trim of the Ascent comes standard with LED headlights that pivot in the direction you're traveling. You can't get that in most other three-row SUVs below $40,000. There's now even a warning alert for second and third row passengers to fasten their seatbelts (letting you know if one of your kids has unbuckled for whatever reason), along with an alert to check the back seats when you exit the vehicle. 

Even the base trims of most Subaru vehicles get top-rate EyeSight safety features, from auto emergency braking to adaptive cruise control, which now performs better in keeping the 2021 Subaru Ascent near New Iberia LA in its own lane. There's also now a feature that enables the lane assist, even when the vehicle isn't in cruise mode. However, if you want blind-spot assistance and rear cross-traffic alert, you'll need to get the Premium trim.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awarded the Ascent its highest rating of five stars overall, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives this Subaru excellent scores in all collision and crash avoidance tests, which makes it a Top Safety Pick +.

2021 Subaru Ascent near New Iberia LA Amenities

utside of safety, the Premium version of the 2021 Subaru Ascent near New Iberia LA includes heated front seats with a wonderful, 8-way power driver's seat, heated side mirrors and darkened rear-window glass. A WiFi hotspot is included, as well as dual USB ports both front and back. Apple CarPlay/Android Auto comes standard and the StarLink infotainment interface has user-friendly controls. There are physical knobs for changing audio and climate settings as well. The Premium trim also includes an 8-inch touchscreen, navigation, and a 14-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system.


The second and third rows both split 60/40, which is perfect for loading snowboards, skis, kayaks, or whatever on the 40 split and still managing to fit everyone in the family for a trip. Even for this segment, the Ascent is very roomy. A tall adult will fit in all three rows, which means children will be all the more comfortable with room to grow.​​​​​​​

Cargo Space

A maximum cargo space of 86.5 cubic feet is better than most rivals, like the Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot. Space behind the third row is so-so with 17.6 cubic feet, but strong and functional roof rails come standard, which makes it easy to mount cargo that doesn't fit inside. Not to mention the storage compartment under the cargo floor! It also comes standard equipped with a power liftgate.


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The 2.4 liter turbocharged flat-4 cylinder engine of the 2021 Subaru Ascent near New Iberia LA produces 260 horsepower, which isn't a lot for this size SUV, but 277 lb-ft of torque helps it to accelerate quickly for passing and take offs. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) comes standard, as does all-wheel drive. All of the Ascent's competitors only offer AWD as an option. Also notable is the Ascent's maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Sharp throttle response and grippy, stable handling inspire confidence in drivability, and make the Ascent feel nimble. The interior is quiet and delivers excellent ride comfort. Even the choice of the 20-inch wheel and tire combination doesn't cause uncomfortable jarring over bumps.

The Subaru Ascent has four trims: base, Premium, Limited, and Touring. The base trim starts at about $33,000 and because of its long list of standard features, is a great choice for most buyers. The Touring trim's MSRP is around $45,500 and has a boatload of added comfort and driver assist features.
