Well not so much every cup holder question, just how many cup holders are in the new Subaru Ascent. The answer to that all important questions is nineteen and we have Kristen Lee from Jalopnik to thank for this bit of automotive investigative news.
Seating a maximum of 8 people, nineteen cup holders would mean each occupant has around 2.5 cup holders available to them. Some will have to work out who gets which half.
Waiting until the coast was clear at the LA Auto Show, with barely any journalists left wandering around, she took the chance to enter the Subaru Ascent on display. Her goal was to locate every single one of these cup holders and the first place to look was of course the usual suspect.
There are two located in the center console with two more integrated into each front door. Those in the second row will have access to two holders in the fold-down armrest though that does sacrifice the middle seat. On either rear passenger door are three cup holders with one sitting near the handle and two below the window controls.
Those in the third row will find two cup holders beneath each window. At least that’s what they’ll see upon first glance. If you’ve kept track so far, we’ve only counted 18 cup holders, which leaves the 19the unaccounted for.
One set of third row cup holders actually has space for three cups instead of two. Now everyone’s curiosity has been sate.
