I’m what some people may call an adventurous person, and that doesn’t just include doing exhilarating things like zip-lining, rafting, paddleboarding, caving, extreme biking, and driving fast cars. It also includes driving a vehicle that can take me anywhere I want to go.

With a large family, I need the safety that comes with a modern SUV. But I also don’t want to give up on the thrill of adventure in order to get it.

Subaru has proven time and again that safety is a priority. I’m sure you’ve seen the commercial where the teenager has an accident but no one’s concerned because “it’s a Subaru!” And Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is so amazing that it’s like an extra set of eyes on the road. So, we all know that Subaru is a safe choice, right?

But What If You Crave Adventure Too?

I’m always on the lookout for new adventures and I’m trying to get my kids to experience more of these same thrilling activities I so crave. So even though I appreciate the safety aspect of life and driving, adventure needs to be part of the experience.

Typically it’s been hard to find a vehicle that gives you both safety and the ability to take you where the road stops when you are toting along four kids and a husband. I’ve always had my eye on a Subaru Outback, but it just didn’t work for our larger family. It’s a great choice if you have 1 to 5 people, but what if your family or circle of adventure-seeking travel friends is larger like ours is?

Enter the 2019 Subaru Ascent: problem solved. This sleek 3 row SUV seats 7 or 8 passengers depending on whether or not you choose captain’s chairs for the middle row. I’m so excited that we can ditch the minivan and load into a safe, adventure-ready SUV!

Who Is The Subaru Ascent For?

  • Families or groups that need seating for 5 to 8
  • Subaru fans
  • Anyone looking for the space of a minivan in the body of an SUV
  • Road trip enthusiasts looking for a durable adventure-ready SUV
  • Anyone who needs great cargo space and lots of seating
