Here at Subaru of Macon, we’ve kind of taken up a mission of defending modern SUV designs. We’ve always felt that SUVs deserve more credit for the innovations that they continue to deliver. Subaru’s exquisite Ascent SUV is proof that full-size vehicles offer modern families a variety of benefits, making them a great choice for just about every driver. Today, we’d like to use the Ascent as an example of a vehicle that’s perfect for families in our community.

The old myth of SUVs being fuel-inefficient is easily debunked, with the Ascent capable of a seriously impressive 27 MPG highway, and 21 MPG city. That sounds a little low compared to something like a sedan or a hatchback, but bear in mind the power and solid engineering, the truck-based engine, and the major hauling capacity – few heavy duty vehicles can achieve anything close to 27MPG on the highway.

That power is also something to be reckoned with. The turbocharged 260 horsepower Subaru BOXER® engine is designed for powerful pickup trucks and allows this SUV to achieve a 5,000 pound towing capacity. Being built on a truck chassis, this SUV can also provide more towing capacity than a pickup on average due to higher cubic values to the space provided.

It can do all of this while providing luxury interior comfort with a large number of USB charging ports, Bluetooth capabilities, onboard mobile integration via dash display, and of course, plenty of cup holders. The upholstery is beautiful and quite opulent, and the second row of captain’s chairs just provides that extra bit of comfort when on a long drive. With onboard safety sensors and driver assist systems, you can take your family across the country with peace of mind, and that’s something you can’t put a price on really.

At Subaru of Macon, we think this SUV is perfect for just about everyone. Save the planet by comfortably carpooling to work, take your kids to school in style, haul groceries or other bulky things with no problem, and look good while doing it.
