LOS ANGELES — The 2019 Subaru Ascent three-row crossover, available with seven or eight seats, is the brand's largest vehicle ever.
And there's a reason for that.
"Now we've got something for the family," Tom Doll, Subaru of America president, told Automotive News last week on the sidelines of the vehicle's unveiling at the Los Angeles Auto Show. "Now people don't have to leave us when they get a child or two and start their family formation like these millennial people. This is the perfect car for them."
To demonstrate the Ascent's size and family appeal, Subaru packed the crossover with the Barkleys, eight golden and Labrador retrievers Subaru called its "spokesdogs," during the auto show reveal.
