One of the primary concerns with any vehicle purchase, including SUVs, is safety. If you need a safe and reliable SUV to take you and your family around Doylestown, Philadelphia, and Warminster, Subaru has just the vehicle for you. The 2019 Subaru Ascent is perhaps the safest model we've seen to date, and we hope you'll love its features as much as we do. Learn more about the Subaru Ascent safety features with our convenient review.

General Safety

The 2019 Subaru Ascent earns high honors from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). It earned its designation as a TOP SAFETY PICK+, receiving high marks in all safety categories (small overlap front for driver and passengers, head restraint, roof strength, etc). In addition, the Ascent earned a superior rating in crash tests using speeds of 12 and 25 MPH.

Subaru Ascent Safety Features

The first thing to consider when looking at safety features is how well the car communicates with you. In the case of the 2019 Subaru Ascent, communication is excellent. Across all trim levels, the Ascent uses Vehicle Dynamics Control capabilities to aid with traction control and, if you're towing, to help adjust when trailer sway is detected. With a 5,000-pound maximum towing capacity, you'll need this feature for days when you transport heavy cargo.

In addition, the 2019 Subaru Ascent is packed with safety technology. Starting at the Premium trim level, you'll get STARLINK™ SOS capabilities. These features can help you navigate on-road emergencies calmly. When your car breaks down in the middle of winter weather or a passenger needs medical attention immediately, simply press a button to contact STARLINK™ and get help.

More Technology, Safer Vehicle

Another feature you're sure to love is the EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, which comes standard on all trims. This package includes cutting-edge safety systems, such as Pre-Collision Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control. The braking system is particularly useful since it'll apply the brakes for you if you don't respond to a warning in time.

The 2019 Subaru Ascent now comes with a backup camera across trim levels. This will make backing up safer and backing into parking spots easier. In addition, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert comes standard on the Premium, Limited, and Touring trims. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert warns you of any approaching vehicles from either side as you back out of a parking spot.

Quality Visibility Assistance

The LED headlights on the Limited and Touring trim levels earned particularly good ratings and helped the 2019 Ascent net its TOP PICK+ award from the IIHS. The LED headlights, which are not available on the base trim level, will improve both your visibility and navigation.

Finally, there's the Ascent's addition of Blind-Spot Detection (standard on Premium, Touring and Limited models) and the Smart Rear-View Mirror (standard or optional on all trim levels). The Blind-Spot Detection system alerts you to vehicles in your blind spots using a visual indicator. For more assistance, use the Smart Rear-View Mirror and accompanying 180-Degree Front Camera for an unparalleled view of surrounding or oncoming traffic.
