Subaru announced the 2023 Ascent 3-row family SUV with updated new safety and in-vehicle technologies. The 2023 Ascent is available in Base, Premium, Onyx Edition, Limited, and Touring trim levels and arrives in Subaru retailers this Fall.

New Cabin Connect improves communication from the driver or front passenger to the third-row occupants. When activated, the feature picks up the driver or front passenger’s voice by the overhead console microphone and then transmits through the rear speakers.

The 2023 Ascent comes standard with the latest version of the STARLINK 11.6-inch Multimedia Plus system with wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto with full screen display. The system features an 11.6-inch high-resolution touchscreen. Additional standard features include Valet Mode, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming connectivity, AM/FM stereo, rear vision camera, SiriusXM All-Access Radio and SiriusXM Travel Link (4-month free subscriptions), HD Radio, and over-the-air updates.

The available 11.6-inch STARLINK Multimedia Navigation system includes voice-activated navigation powered by TomTom and SiriusXM Travel Link (3-year free subscription). New for 2023, the navigation system has integrated what3words (W3W), an innovative location technology that provides a simple way to communicate precise locations using just three simple words.
