New Subaru Ascent promises to excite three-row crossover buyers

Subaru plugs a big gap in its lineup this year with the debut of the new Ascent crossover.

A three-row gap to be precise.

The midsize 2019 Ascent ($31,995) is Subaru’s largest vehicle and its second attempt to crash the three-row party. A previous effort, the Tribeca, failed to excite buyers. That won’t be a problem with the Ascent.

Certainly, it checks all the right boxes.
