Phone Tablet and GPS Mounts for a Subaru Ascent

Subaru makes great vehicles.  Subaru doesn’t always make vehicles that are easy to mount stuff.  In terms of compatible mounts, the big giant Subaru Ascent is no different from most other Subaru vehicles.  We previously looked at a few other vehicles from this manufacturer including the Subaru Crosstrek and were met with similar challenges.

We always try to include a photo of the interior with vehicle specific articles and we have done so with the Subaru Outback.  It’s a fairly conventional design.  Unlike the curviest SUV on the planet being a Nissan Murano, this is standard stuff.
