Subaru Viziv Performance concept previews sharp new sedan

  Subaru Viziv Performance concept previews sharp new sedan We're not sure what sedan it is, but hey, it's better than another SUV.The Subaru Viziv Performance concept gives us a hint at... some kind of new Subaru that, thankfully, does not appear to be a crossover. The front end looks properly aggressive, with LED headlights carrying the same C shape as previous Subarus, but with a bit more of that concept-car flourish. There look to be some large air intakes just under the lights, as well.

Nearly half a decade after the demise of Subaru’s Tribeca SUV, the Japanese brand will jump back into the three-row crossover game with the 2019 Subaru Ascent. Built on the scalable Subaru Global Platform that also underpins the latest Impreza, the Ascent rides on a 113.8-inch wheelbase and contains a formidable 152 cubic feet of passenger space in its boxy body, comparable to the Honda Pilot (152 cubic feet) and the Volkswagen Atlas (153 cubic feet) but falling short of the massive Chevrolet Traverse by five cubes.

Subaru Viziv Performance Concept Could Preview Next-Gen WRX

  Subaru Viziv Performance Concept Could Preview Next-Gen WRX But will the production car look as good as this? Let's hope that it will.An all-new WRX won’t hit the streets until the end of the decade, but at least now we have some sort of a preview to ease the wait. Debuting today in Tokyo, the Viziv Performance Concept is an aggressive high-performance sedan that boasts a multitude of carbon fiber parts to shave off weight. It has been used just about everywhere, including for the bumpers, fenders, roof, as well as for the spoiler at the back.

Motor Trend reviews the 2019 Subaru Ascent where consumers can find detailed information on specs, fuel economy, transmission and safety.

The Ascent offers standard seating for eight, thanks to three-across benches in both the second and third rows. A pair of second-row captain’s chairs, a no-cost option on all but the base Ascent, limits seating to seven. Regardless, the three-row Subaru provides 20 cubic feet of cargo space behind its third row and 73 cubes with both the second and third rows folded.


Max Power

Powering the Ascent is a new turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four engine making 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque, the latter at a low 2000 rpm—that’s 10 more ponies than the turbo four in the Mazda CX-9 but 33 lb-ft less torque. The Ascent’s turbo four, however, is torquier than the V-6s offered in the Traverse, Pilot, and Atlas and significantly more than Subaru’s own 3.6-liter flat-six powerplant.

As in every Subaru not named BRZ, the Ascent comes standard with all-wheel drive. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) serves as the middleman between the engine and the axles, and a set of steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters accesses eight preset ratios for simulated stepped gearchanges. Subaru claims the Ascent can tow up to 5000 pounds when properly equipped, a figure that betters the Mazda by 1500 pounds and matches the maximum towing capacities of the Chevy, Honda, and Volkswagen.

Safe and Sound

Standard on every Ascent is Subaru’s EyeSight suite of safety features, which includes automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure warning. Additionally, all Ascent trims feature a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The display measures 6.5 inches in the base Ascent but grows to 8.0 inches in the Premium, Limited, and Touring models. Ascending the trim-level ladder adds comfort and convenience items such as a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, heated seats for the first two rows, and a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert. A reverse automated braking system, a power liftgate, and a proximity key with push-button start are optional on the Premium but come standard on Limited and Touring trims.

Additionally, the Limited model features leather upholstery, LED headlights, and retractable second-row sunshades, while the top-of-the-line Touring adds ventilated front seats, rain-sensing wipers, a camera-based rearview mirror, navigation, and a panoramic sunroof. Both the navigation system and the sunroof also are available as options on Premium and Limited models.

Subaru has yet to announce an on-sale date or pricing for the Ascent. We expect to see the model reach dealer lots before fall 2018 with a base price below $35,000 for the entry-level Ascent and a sticker price at or near $50,000 for fully loaded versions.

The Best Sub-$35,000 Cars at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show .
At any auto show, it’s easy to find cars that cost $100,000 or more. Automakers love showing off the coolest concepts and most expensive vehicles they have to offer, and we can’t really blame them. But most people can’t afford to spend six figures on a car no matter how cool it is. With that in mind, we kept an eye out for the show's best cars that are likely to cost $35,000 or less.
