(December 5, 2021) In 2019 Subaru introduced a very competent and capable three-row crossover in the Ascent, but it was not especially exciting or unique — more of a step-up vehicle for Subaru enthusiasts.  Sure, it comes with standard all-wheel-drive and 8.7 inches of ground clearance for topping snow or handling light trails to a weekend cabin, but it lacked the attitude necessary to entice sporty families.  It was a wholly competent family wagon that lacked gravitas.  That changes with the 2022 Subaru Ascent Onyx — the three-row crossover for cool families.
