Take Advantage of Great Towing Capacity, Cargo Space, Fuel Economy, & More

If you have a growing family, or tend to travel with friends, the Ascent is the ideal SUV for you. Offering third-row seating and room for up to seven or eight passengers, you'll be able to handle any road trip with ease. This model also offers the most horsepower and phenomenal towing capacity; so you can take the boat, camper, or trailer along for any of your adventures.

Looking for the vehicle with the most cargo room? Get behind the wheel of the Outback to utilize up to 35.5 cu. ft. for all of your gear and belongings. If you're searching for the most affordable model, however, you'll want to hit the streets in the Forester. Not only does this SUV have the lowest starting MSRP of $26,695, but it also has the best fuel economy.

No matter which Subaru SUV you choose, you'll be able to enjoy standard AWD, remote keyless entry, a backup camera, as well as all the incredible safety features found in EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology.
