The exterior design of the concept follows Subaru’s “Dynamic x Solid” theme with powerful fender flares representing Subaru’s all-wheel drive system and a large, bluff grille denoting a true SUV look. The interior of the concept features a flowing dashboard design and a 7-passenger configuration with center captain’s chairs.
The Ascent production model will be based on a modified version of the Subaru Global Platform that debuted last year. The model will be built in Lafayette, Indiana and will be sold exclusively in the North American market starting in 2018. While pricing information has not yet been made available, OutdoorX4 Magazine looks forward to a full test review once the production model is available and will share more about this intriguing new vehicle once details are released.
