What's New for the 2020 Subaru Accent?

The Ascent became the largest Subaru vehicle when it debuted for the 2019 model year. A year into production, not much has changed; Subaru added a standard rear-seat reminder alert system and power-folding side mirrors. By this time, the Ascent is noted for its superb handling (for its size), spacious three-row seating, and a plethora of tech features.
