All-Wheel Drive
As with every Subaru (excepting the sporty BRZ), the Ascent has standard full-time all-wheel drive as well as active-torque vectoring for improved handling in slick conditions. The Ascent also gets X-Mode, which can lock the variable transfer clutch for better traction in difficult off-pavement conditions. With 8.7-inches of ground clearance, the Ascent becomes a capable companion when the pavement ends or snow begins.
