3-Row Ascent Earns Top Safety Honors

2019 Subaru Ascent

Safety is paramount to Subaru. When designing the all-new 2019 Ascent - the largest and most versatile Subaru ever - Subaru was committed to making sure its safety capabilities would meet the highest standards. Now, that commitment has been affirmed. The 2019 Subaru Ascent has been awarded top safety honors. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the Ascent a 2018 Top Safety Pick+ with Steering Responsive Headlights. 

IIHS assesses a vehicle's crashworthiness with six tests: moderate overlap front, driver-side small overlap front, (new) passenger-side small overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints & seats. According to IIHS, "The Ascent earns good crashworthiness ratings across the board and comes with standard, superior-rated front crash prevention." [1]

To earn the IIHS 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+, a vehicle must receive a “Good” rating for five tests of high-speed front and side crash tests, a rollover test, and evaluations of seat/head restraints for protection against neck injuries in rear impacts. New for 2018, the passenger side small overlap crash was added to the evaluations and a vehicle must also receive a “Good” or “Acceptable” rating. 

Standard 180-Degree Front Camera

The Ascent is designed to give you peace of mind when you're behind the wheel. The Ascent is built upon Subaru's strongest foundation yet - the Subaru Global Platform - in addition to offering some of the most advanced active safety systems. Plus, new features such as the Smart Rear-View Mirror and 180-Degree Front Camera enhance visibility. And, advanced lighting technology, including the available LED Steering Responsive Headlights with High Beam Assist, helps make nighttime driving even safer.
