Camden, N.J. – Subaru of America Inc. announced pricing on the 2023 Ascent three-row SUV with updated exterior styling as well as new safety and in-vehicle technologies.

Available in six trim levels – Base, Premium, Onyx Edition, Onyx Edition Limited, Limited, and Touring – the 2023 Ascent arrives in Subaru retailers this winter.

With a starting price of $33,895, the 2023 Ascent receives a bolder look from a new front fascia incorporating a more prominent grille; redesigned LED headlights; and a more aggressive front bumper cover. The new front bumper cover features new lower-edge air ducts to improve aerodynamic flow under the vehicle. At the back of the vehicle, updated Konoji (C-shaped) taillights further exemplify the SUV’s fresh look for 2023.

The 2023 Ascent comes standard with the latest version of EyeSight Driver Assist Technology (ADAS). The enhanced system operates more smoothly and under a greater range of conditions. These improvements are thanks to a wider field of view, updated control software, and the addition of an electric brake booster. Also standard across the model line is a new Wide-Angle Mono Camera that works together with the EyeSight System’s stereo cameras.
Models equipped with Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert now include Automatic Emergency Steering, a new safety feature that works in conjunction with the EyeSight Pre-Collision Braking to help steer the vehicle to avoid a collision when travelling at speeds under 50 mph.
For enhanced all-around situational awareness while parking, an available Surround View Monitor offers a 360-degree overhead view of the vehicle. The new system uses images from four vehicle cameras and combines them to create a single image for a bird’s-eye view of the area around the entire vehicle. 

The 2023 Ascent 3-row SUV includes an extensive roster of standard amenities including Steering Responsive LED headlights with High Beam Assist; Seat Belt Reminder for every seat; front tri-zone and rear automatic climate control; automatic power door locks; power windows and side mirrors; security system with engine immobilizer; rear vision camera; USB-A and USB-C input/charge ports in front center console; USB-A and USB-C charge ports in rear center console; dual USB-A input/charge ports in third row; 19 cupholders; raised roof rails; and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
