How Safe is the All-New 2019 Subaru Ascent?

Having recently received a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the authority's highest across-the-board rating, the new three-row SUV is exceptionally safe! Just take a look at the details of how the seventh Subaru vehicle to earn this award fared during crash testing, and you'll see what we mean.

For one, the new 2019 Ascent got a "Superior" front crash prevention rating -- again, the highest from the IIHS -- thanks to standard Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, which can help you keep a safe distance from traffic, stay on-course and in-lane, and even avoid an accident with preventative braking. Secondly, it received a "Good" rating for its headlights, and finally, a "Good+" score for the securing abilities of its LATCH child seat anchor system.

The new Ascent did so well, in fact, that even a few stalwart rivals had a hard time keeping up. Toyota Highlander, for example, received only a TOP SAFETY PICK, with only "Acceptable" passenger-side ratings, "Acceptable" headlights, and "Good" child seating anchors. Ford Explorer, on the other hand, didn't receive either rating from the pros, getting "Marginal" driver-side ratings, a "Poor" passenger-side mark, only a "Basic" front crash prevention score, "Poor" headlight ratings, and an "Acceptable" LATCH anchoring mark.

So, the verdict's clear: if you're looking for a new mid-size SUV with full-size aspirations that's exceptionally safe, showing a true dedication to keeping you and yours safe for the long haul, you can look no further than right here in Madison, WI and the new 2019 Subaru Ascent.
