Sell ​​me on the Ascension

Hey guys,

I drive a 2020 Subaru Impreza hatch. I absolutely love it to pieces, but the simple fact is that it is getting too small for me. I’m 6’2 and 225 lbs, and at 29 I’m finding that what people say about turning 30 is absolutely true. It’s not necessarily difficult to get in and out of my car, but loading it can be a strain. The blow was today I somehow hit my knee on the steering wheel going in (Long Legs).

Tl;dr, I want something bigger, a good highway cruiser.

I’m considering Foresters, Highlanders and Grand Cherokees, but I’m leaning more towards the Ascent. I would get an Outback as I think they are almost perfect in every way but I despise the big touchscreen – my girlfriend drives one and I just hate it. I’m aware the 2023 Ascents have that big screen so I’d buy used. Looks like there are some pretty good deals on 2020s in my area. I test drove a 2022 a while back but held off since we were buying a house soon (And they had it listed for $48,000).

I do a lot of highway driving in the tri-state area of ​​New Jersey. I’ve heard of problems with the CVTs, but it looks like a programming update could fix said problems? How is everyone’s daily gas mileage? I do a ton of driving, but mostly highway and I keep it easy around 70 mph, which in my Impreza gets about 38 mpg. Can around 30mpg be achieved in an Ascent? A bigger gas tank would also be great for me since I usually put about 2000 miles a month on my car.
