So it'll most likely debut at the Frankfurt motor show that's coming up before going on sale next spring. There's a hybrid in the works, but only for a crossover so we won't be seeing a hybrid version of the Ascent which is a full sized SUV.

With all the shows coming up this time of the year there will be some good overlap of information on the Ascent since this is also a high volume product. We will be seeing a number of pre-production model showings. So with that expect to see some different pre-production trims.

Exciting times

Interview with Tom Doll

Here's an article from Philly news...

What sells a car? Durability, says Subaru CEO, and lots of phone connectivity

Am I reading this right...19 cup holders!

"Oh yeah, they’re important. We have 19 in the three-row SUV coming up. That’s the Ascent, which we’ll be launching in May or June. It’s going to be the largest Subaru we’ve ever had." -Tom Doll

Believe it or not, that amount of cup holders is an industry norm in segments like this. Either that or some car makers are misunderstanding the American market by going overboard with features like this.

Real question should be how many owners are seeing this sort of usage.

Even the VW Atlas is like this:
Quote:
Unlike some VWs past, the Atlas was designed and will be built by Americans, with input from American customers. It has, for instance, 18 cupholders positioned throughout a commodious interior.

That makes 2.71 cup holders per passenger .
Fantastic!
