Subaru is celebrating the sale of the first 2019 Subaru Ascent SUV, which was by Sommer’s Subaru in Mequon, Wisconsin. The first 2019 Ascent went to to long-time Subaru owner, Samantha Ernest of Pewaukee, Wisconsin, who was accompanied by her two sons, Caden and Oliver, and their Boston Terrier, Brewer.
To celebrate the sale first Ascent, Subaru gave the new owner a Subaru Starlink Entertainment Anywhere kit that includes two 9.7-inch Apple iPads, two Harman Kardon Bluetooth headphones and two OtterBox cases.
“My husband, Pat Henderson, and I have two active little boys,” said Samantha Ernest. “They love sports, so we’re always running them to Taekwondo, swimming or team sports with their friends. One of the reasons I wanted this new SUV is because it has the third row. Now that they’re getting a bit older and have more friends, I need more room.”
Pricing for the 2019 Subaru Ascent starts at $32,970. The three-row SUV is powered by a 260 horsepower turbocharged 2.4L four-cylinder that’s mated to a CVT transmission. Subaru’s Symmetrical all-wheel drive is standard.
