2018 Subaru Ascent 7 Seat SUV – Very Nice Design:
The exterior design of the newly 2018 Subaru Ascent 7 Seat SUV will be very nice and massive. This model will be definitely larger than its predecessor Tribeca and that is very good news. Furthermore, this model is constructed around the Subaru Global platform and as we know, this platform but in shortened form debuted in the 2017 Impreza model. The platform will be based on high-strength steel that will improve impact-energy-absorption if you have a collision. Some details from the outside that we can see under the camo are massive front bumper fitted with rounded fog lights located on the sides. Also, we don’t see it, but we can certainly expect large air intakes for better engine cooling.
We can also notice front grille and at the first glance it is divided into two parts but maybe that is just the camo. We can also see nicely designed headlights, and it is quite certain that LED system powers all the lighting on the vehicle. The rear side is completely camouflaged and it is impossible to notice something. At the sides, we can see large aluminum wheels with 10 spokes.
The interior design is a complete mystery and we don’t have spy photos of the cabin. Everything is based on rumors and speculations. It is certain that the cabin of this model will be able of accommodating up to seven passengers by providing them a high dose of comfort. Features like cruise control, air condition, rearview camera will be included.
