"The 2019 Subaru Ascent treads familiar ground, looking like the oversized offspring of a Forester and an Outback. As is expected of a Subaru, there is awkwardness here, but it is subtle rather than bold, largely relegated to visual disparity between the swollen fenders and the Nike-esque swoosh stamped into the upper part of the doors.
"Otherwise, Subaru plays it safe, inside and out. Given the poor reception of the original B9 Tribeca, this is not surprising. And the result is appealing enough to attract more than just existing Subaru fans to the largest vehicle the company has ever built."
