Can you tell me about the standard engine?

Power has never been an issue for a Subaru vehicle. The BOXER engine is legendary, and it's here in this 2021 model to make sure that you don't forget why it's so incredibly special. The standard engine is a 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER inline-4, which can produce around 277 pound-feet of torque and up to 260 horsepower. Paired up with this engine is a high-torque Lineartronic continuously variable transmission. This transmission even comes with an eight-speed manual mode function, and steering wheel paddle shifters. Every single trim level gets symmetrical all-wheel drive, along with X-MODE with hill descent control. The base fuel economy is around 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.

What does EyeSight Driver Assist offer?

It has never been a better time to focus on safety than it is with the 2021 Ascent. Every single model in the lineup gets standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology. In this model year, you'll find features like advanced adaptive cruise control with lane centering, lane keep assist, a rear vision camera, and everything else in between. These different features make sure that you and your passengers are kept safe, by enabling you to make the best decisions possible while driving. Any automotive brand that puts this much thought into a standard safety package needs to be given credit where credit is due.

Can you tell me about the standard and available features?

Among the four different trim levels that come with the 2021 Ascent, you'll be finding all of the features you could ever need. The base trim comes with power windows and side mirrors, a rear vision camera, two USB charging ports, tri-zone front and rear automatic climate control, raised roof rails, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, automatic power door locks, a multi-function display, and a 6.5-inch touchscreen. Another trim, the Premium includes rear window privacy glass, blind-spot detection, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an All-Weather package, rear cross-traffic alert, and second-row independent automatic climate control.
