New York Auto Show: Subaru Ascent Concept

Meanwhile, a pair of second-row bucket seats combines with a third-row bench to bring total seating capacity to seven.

Subaru's last 7-seater was the Tribeca, which was discontinued in 2014. The Ascent Concept's door skins have more voluptuous surface development, and while some of the Viziv-7's fanciful exterior details have been deleted, the differences are minor.

This three-row SUV is just a concept for now, but Subaru is already developing a production model that will go toe-to-toe with the recently unveiled Volkswagen Atlas when it goes on sale in 2018.

United CEO says no one will be fired for dragging incident
He says the airline will have more to say later this month after it finishes a review of its policies on overbooked flights. United stock was trading at $71.52 on April 10, the day after the incident and the day the video started to go to viral.

Is Subaru missing a trick by not releasing a seven seat SUV in the UK? Expect the final version of the vehicle to have less futuristic headlights, slightly bigger side mirrors, conventional door handles, and possibly some light tweaks to both bumpers. It will also feature a turbocharged Boxer engine. The engine will also feature direct injection and power all four wheels.

The2018 Subaru Ascent will be riding on the Global Platform made from high-strength steel.

Sales for Subaru are booming with the company growing quickly. The dashboard, with its metal and full leather wrapping, is likely to switch to more plastic, though the core layout will probably stay much the same. Pricing and exact release date will come closer to launch. Even only selling the Lafayette, Indiana-built Ascent in North America, it's unlikely to have problems shifting this largest model, especially if it can offer a more car-like experience on the road.
