Hi - do you know on what other markets than USA and Canada Ascent will be available? I know there is no chance for Europe but do you think the Near East region will get its Ascent? I am particularly interested in Qatar/UAE.

E.g. here you can find an information that Ascent will be available in near east?

"The 2019 Subaru Ascent should reach UAE, KSA and other GCC showrooms by the end of 2018."

Here as "coming soon":

Here you can find they are not sure:
2019 Subaru Ascent Releases This Summer - Motoraty
"The Ascent is not available in the UAE and we are not sure yet if Subaru would make it available in our region."

I am a great fan of Subaru (and Impreza STI owner :smile:) I would be so happy to get an Ascent :plain:

As of now, there's no indication the car will be available outside of the North American market.

I don't see why you couldn't just buy it from the US or Canada and then just ship it over to you? A quick Google comes up with about $1,000 to ship to UAE from the west coast(US).

yes, i'm checking that option, initially looks like 5% of tax needs to be added and shipment is around $3,000. i also think i will losse my warranty :-/

Oh, the warranty issue never even crossed my mind. And that would definitely effect my purchasing decision if I were in your situation.

You should send Subaru of America a quick email and ask for clarification. They have been very helpful to the rest of us that have asked questions and they should be able to answer that warranty concern for you.

5% tax doesn't sound too bad, our locality charges 7.5% tax. Relatively speaking, even at $3,000 for shipping, if everything else works out for you, that really isn't that bad of a price (if you REALLY want the Ascent). And you may even be the only one with an Ascent for thousands of miles! That would be cool :smile:
