What is the 2023 Subaru Ascent fuel mileage?
The 2023 Subaru Ascent base and Premium trim levels get an EPA estimated 20/26 city/highway mpg and 22 combined mpg. The 2023 Ascent Limited, Touring, Onyx Edition, and new Onyx Edition Limited trim levels get an EPA estimated 19/25 city/highway mpg and 21 combined mpg.
Why do all 2023 Ascent trims get lower fuel mileage?
We asked a Subaru spokesman why the lower fuel mileage ratings, and here is the reply. "There are a few reasons, including power consumption due to enhanced features and emission regulation changes."
The emission regulation changes affected Ascent's 2.4-liter turbocharged Boxer engine. The 2023 Subaru Ascent also comes with added weight due to the interior upgrades and new EyeSight driver-assist safety technology.
What type of gasoline does the 2023 Subaru Outback require?
With gas prices rising, do you need the more expensive grade of gasoline for the 2023 Ascent turbocharged engine? If you buy any new 2023 Subaru Ascent trim level, your 3-Row SUV is designed to run the best on 87 octane or regular gasoline, and you don't need expensive premium or mid-grade fuel.
If you live in one of the mountain states, Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming, you can run the lowest 85-octane unleaded gasoline. Check out the Subaru fuel guide here.
With the one mpg decrease in fuel mileage, the 2023 Subaru Ascent is still one of the most fuel-efficient new 3-Row SUVs for SUV shoppers.
