New York, April 13: Subaru of America, erasing the Tribeca from the minds of U.S. consumers who shunned it, will again have a seat at the bustling three-row crossover table.
Features includes aggressive lines, bulky fender flares and beefy tires.The production model will be available with a seven- or eight-seat layout.
“This concept looks confident, courageous, capable and in-command. Three full rows, and every inch is Subaru,” said Doll.
It is more premium looking, two-tone interior that features a striking multimedia system in the center with the digital dashboard.
With three rows, the concept can seat seven passengers. The center row has captain’s chairs while the third row is a three-seat bench.
The car is powered by an all-new turbocharged direct-injection boxer engine and all-wheel drive, Subaru said.
The Ascent concept checks in at 198.8 inches long, 78.3 inches wide and 72.4 inches tall, with a wheelbase of 117 inches. Those figures would put the Ascent in the same ballpark, sizewise, with the Ford Explorer, Mazda CX-9 and Chevrolet Traverse.
