Subaru

Subaru is an automaker that’s become synonymous with both the boxer engine and symmetrical all-wheel drive. While not one of the giants of the Japanese automotive industry, Subaru has been making cars since the ’50s. Stateside, Subaru is popular for its affordable yet rugged models such as the best-selling Outback or the Impreza that still oozes WRC pedigree to this day. AWD is standard on most cars in Subaru’s lineup but for the BRZ compact sports car that’s RWD, while boxer engines continue to be the norm on most of the models on offer, be it compact SUVs, sedans, station wagons, or the lone sports car.

2022 Subaru Ascent - Driven

The Subaru Ascent comes with decent specs as standard, but misses out on some rather important stuff, too

There are a plethora of mid-size three-row SUVs that you can buy today, and the Subaru Ascent is one of them. The Ascent has some things going in its favor, like a standard all-wheel-drive system, smooth ride, etc., but it also has many things that will make potential customers look elsewhere. For starters, there’s the Continuously Variable Transmission that offers a supple ride, but comes with the infamous rubber band effect. The third-row isn’t the most spacious either. But, all that said, you get a whole lot of safety tech even in the base trims, amongst other things. We recently tested the Ascent, and here’s all you need to know about this SUV from Subaru.
