Probably not immediately as they need an Ascent to laser measure. I’m waiting for WeatherTech because it’s really dry here in the summer so I won’t really need the liners until fall. If you go on WeatherTech’s website you can sign up to be notified when they’re available.I am going back and forth on the All Weather Liners. I may prefer the WeatherTech, but does anyone know if they would be available immediately given that it is a new model car for Subaru. I do want some sort of floor mat/liner right away.
Thanks so much. I just signed up on the Weathertech website. Unfortunately, I may have to purchase the Subaru ones because I don't trust my 3 and 7 year old to keep the 2nd row clean in the interim.Probably not immediately as they need an Ascent to laser measure.

I put in to get the ones from Subaru as I couldn't wait either as we might get the car before a beach trip and want the mats to contain the sand.I decided to get the Subaru ones. I've heard their new mats are pretty decent. I've seen a pair in an Outback and liked them at least as much as the Weathertecs in my Outback. They actually seemed to fit better than mine.
As of right now my plan is to check out the Ascent mats in person when they start arriving in dealers and make a decision from there as they are so much more economical. The WeatherTech for my husbands Kia Soul was almost $200 and if I remember correctly when I looked at the ones for the VW Atlas they were over $300Back in 2012, we bought a slightly used 10-month old 2012 Volvo S60 and Weathertech did not yet have mats for it. They did a few months later after I put my e-mail in requesting them. I don't know if their speed in producing mats for new cars has increased since then.
For the Ascent, I just ordered the all weather liners because a dealer on this website (Carl) claims that they are similar to Weathertech now. After purchasing weathertech items for a long time now, while I like their products, I'm pretty sure when they do come out with Ascent mats, they will be more expensive than the Subaru ones. So might as well get the Subaru ones, as we won't have to wait many months, they are more economical and they are similar to the Weathertech mats now, anyway.
"Custom-fitted, high wall design floor liners help protect the vehicle carpet from sand, dirt and moisture.
Not intended for use on top of Carpeted Floor Mats."
We made a running change on the 2018 Outback from All Weather Mats to All Weather Liners. They are a lot nicer for holding ... stuff. What we've been told is that the Ascent will have Liners similar to these now, so there's actually not a need for an aftermarket replacement.I am going back and forth on the All Weather Liners.
There is an accessory that you can get called a "rear seat back protector". When that 3rd row is folded down, my strong guess is that the "rear seat back protector" doubles as a floor liner. Look at the outback as an example:Will the Ascent have a liner that will cover the entire floor space when the 3rd row is folded down?

Subaru offers an accessory similar to what you are describing with the Weathertech offering - it is called "Cargo Tray". The "Cargo Tray" combined with the "Rear Seat Back Protector" gives you a fully protected cargo area when the rear seat is folded down. We have both on our Forester, and it makes the cargo area very useful for hauling many things.I saw the option of the "rear seat back protector" in the outback at the dealership, but do not like that, it does not give you a single floor space.
I am hoping weathertech might have a solution for the Ascent in case Subaru does not offer something like this.
