Subaru has showcased their all-new seven-seater SUV called the Ascent at the 2017 New York International Auto Show.
The company adopted its “Dynamic x Solid” design language for the Ascent, with its large signature grille up front surrounded by a pair of fancy-looking headlights. Though the SUV is currently in concept stage, Subaru has confirmed that development is ongoing. Underneath the upcoming Subaru Ascent is the Subaru Global Platform, shared with the new Impreza and XV. The company also said that the Ascent will receive a new direct-injection turbocharged boxer engine.
As for the interior, the concept showcased features a mixture of white and brown leather for that luxurious appeal. The concept here also has touch panel window controls on each door, something we reckon won't make it to production. On top of that, the Subaru Ascent concept also gets a large touchscreen with physical knobs for air-conditioning. Whether or not that enters production is yet to be seen.
Don't hold your breath for a local debut, as the company said that the model will be exclusively available to the North American market. Subaru added that the Ascent will go on sale in 2018, with production set to commence at their Indiana facility.
