The Subaru Ascent's sole update for 2020 is the addition of a rear-seat reminder system.

Otherwise, this three-row SUV enters its second model year unchanged.

We've already given this thing a thorough examination over the course of a year with our long-term tester, and after every ride we walked away impressed.

But there's always something new to glean from more time behind the wheel, and driving through some schizophrenic February weather has given me more reason to appreciate the Ascent.

The Ascent is pretty evenly priced against its biggest competitors.

The Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride are hot new contenders that ramp things up in the style department, but both of those new three-rows can get expensive in a hurry.

Suffice it to say, comparison shopping in this segment might take some time.

But if you do opt for the Ascent, I don't think you'll be let down.

It drives well in all manner of weather conditions, there's plenty of space for families to store stuff and its standard safety tech should offer a whole lot of peace of mind.
