Subaru Debuts the Refreshed 2023 Ascent SUV
Subaru has unveiled the 2023 Ascent 3-row family SUV, which has new safety and in-vehicle technologies along with redesigned aesthetics. The Onyx Edition trim level gets new exterior and interior details, as well as a complete option package, for 2023.
This Fall, Subaru shops will start stocking the 2023 Ascent in Base, Premium, Onyx Edition, Limited, and Touring trim levels.
With a new front fascia featuring a larger grille, new LED headlights, and an aggressive front bumper cover, Ascent’s styling is bolder for the 2023 model year. New lower-edge air ducts on the front bumper cover increase the flow of air under the car. Updated Konoji (C-shaped) taillights on the back of the SUV further highlight its new style for 2023.
The most recent version of EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is standard on the 2023 Ascent. The improved system performs better and in a wider range of circumstances. A larger field of view, newer control software, and the inclusion of an electric brake booster are responsible for these gains. A Wide-Angle Mono Camera that functions in tandem with the EyeSight dual-camera system is also included as standard across the whole model line. When a vehicle enters an intersection at a low speed, the additional camera further widens the field of view to help drivers identify pedestrians and bicyclists more quickly. EyeSight warns the driver and applies the brakes as needed to prevent crashes with pedestrians and bicyclists who are crossing the road.
EyeSight provides Automatic Emergency Steering on vehicles with Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. When traveling at speeds under 50 mph, the new feature assists the Pre-Collision Braking System in steering the car to help prevent collisions.
The third-row passengers’ ability to communicate with the driver or front passenger is improved through New Cabin Connect. When turned on, the feature uses the above console microphone to capture the speech of the driver or front passenger and then transmits it over the rear speakers. On trim levels with a Harman Kardon® QuantumLogicTM surround sound speaker system, Cabin Connect is an option.
