By default, Ascent’s salon is 8-seater with a 2 + 3 + 3 landing formula, but as an option it is possible to order individual captain’s seats for two passengers of the second row, thus turning the saloon into a 7-seater. It is interesting that due to the impressive wheelbase dimensions of 2890 mm and the second-row seats moving along the salon, even in the third row there is enough space for comfortable accommodation of 3 passengers.
