While some of us think the weakness in Subaru’s lineup is a lack of a five-door WRX, the vast majority of buyers were clamoring for a bigger Outback with three-rows of seats. The 2019 Subaru Ascent is here for that, and it’s also here to print money.
Tyler and his wife like cars with a small footprint both physically and environmentally, but their compacts aren’t cutting it now that they have had twins. They want a car that can handle the family but doesn’t require a big sacrifice on the eco-friendly front. What should they buy?
If you need a vehicle for moving the family, the minivan is simply the superior tool. But if you think getting a minivan means dooming yourself to three rows of slow, uninspired driving, the current crop of vans could probably dust the sport compact you had as a teenager.
