« on: September 29, 2016, 06:54:45 PM »
Here's a much better article by Car and Driver with spy photos of the 2018 Subaru Ascent 7:

Subaru has been without a three-row crossover SUV since it discontinued its ill-received Tribeca in 2014. However, the brand isnít giving up on the segment, as seen in these spy photos. Wearing generous amounts of camouflage, Subaruís new seven-passenger SUV appears to follow the smaller Foresterís formula for success, which marries a boxy exterior design with generous interior space. Although Subaru has not officially released a name for its new crossover, the brand formally registered the moniker Ascent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office earlier this month. Subaru also applied for trademarks on Ascent 7, Ascent Seven, Sojourn, Venterra, and Cypress, but the company did not follow through with registration of these names. Isuzu has used the name Ascender in the U.S., but no one remembers that vehicle; if there's any risk of name confusion it might be with Hyundai's subcompact Accent, which differs by only one letter.

Subaru just canít seem to lose these days. As of August 2016, the company has sold nearly 400,000 vehicles in America, a gain of more than 4 percent over the same sales period last year. This success is fueled by U.S. buyers who canít get enough all-wheel-drive crossovers, and Subaru aims to carry that momentum into the three-row segment....
