So, you're interested in the Subaru Ascent? There's no wonder why, as this vehicle has become a hit on the streets of Doylestown, Philadelphia, and Warminster. With three rows of seating, unbeatable style, and tons of features inside and out, it's sure to take your driving to the next level. How does it fare when it comes to fuel economy?

As efficiency is one of the most crucial parts of any vehicle, the team at Fred Beans Subaru has created this guide on the Subaru Ascent gas mileage. Will it meet your driving needs? Let's jump right in and find out.

Subaru Ascent MPG

The Subaru Ascent was engineered to provide you with a smooth and powerful ride that also helps you limit trips to the gas station. Even with all of that strength, AWD, and the extra space provided by third-row seating, you will find yourself filling up the tank less often.

If you put in most of your miles around town, the 2019 Ascent has your back. In the base trim, as well as the Premium, you will receive an EPA-estimated fuel economy in the city of 21 MPG. However, if you opt for any of the higher trims (Limited and Touring), you will be met with slightly less at 20 city MPG.1

Enjoy the hitting the highway as much as possible? When standardly equipped, the Ascent and Premium receive an estimated highway MPG of 27, with the Limited and Touring trims not far behind with 26 MPG on the highway.1

Plus, every model of the Subaru Ascent is equipped with a fuel tank that measures in at 19.3 gallons. So, no matter where you're driving, you can pass that gas station and keep driving on.

Subaru Ascent Performance

As you may know, you can't have a gas mileage without the power the engine and transmission provide you. So, let's discuss some of the impressive performance specs before we get into why we're all here.

Under the hood of every trim of the Subaru Ascent, you will find the exclusive 2.4L 4-cylinder turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine. This type of engine is only found in Subaru models and comes equipped with some pretty handy qualities that help improve gas mileage.

First of all, this engine is flatter than most. This gives the Ascent less drag and gives you a smoother drive. Meanwhile, its horizontally opposed valves feed right into the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, which comes standard on every model. No matter the terrain ahead, you will have the traction you need without limiting the fuel economy.

This powertrain is also paired with the Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) on all Ascent models. This not only provides you with smooth, guess-free shifting, it also helps elevate efficiency. Add that on to an engine horsepower of a 260 and a torque of 277 lb-ft, and you have one robust and economical SUV.
