KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Editors - Updated Date: 11/4/2013

For brand loyalists, perhaps the most important thing about the 2014 Subaru Tribeca is that it's a Subaru. As the automaker's largest and most expensive vehicle, the 7-passenger Tribeca SUV offers families who have outgrown their Outback or Forester a way to move up. The Tribeca is notable for its standard 6-cylinder boxer engine and sophisticated all-wheel-drive (AWD) system, which enable this 3-row SUV to be a tenacious handler in slick and snowy conditions. However, the aging Tribeca trails rivals such as the Nissan Pathfinder, Chevrolet Traverse and Hyundai Santa Fe in technology, fuel economy and feature availability while still commanding a nearly $35,000 starting price.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you've been a longtime member of the Subaru family, but your own brood has outgrown your 5-passenger sedan or wagon, the 2014 Tribeca SUV is the answer. Good resale value is another feather in the Subaru's cap.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you want the latest tech or safety features and fuel-economy figures better than 16/21 mpg, look beyond the Tribeca. Most of its 3-row SUV rivals are fresher and offer more advanced infotainment systems and better fuel efficiency.

What's New for 2014

The only change of note for the 2014 Subaru Tribeca is that the moonroof and small 3.5-inch rear-camera display that had previously been bundled into a package are now standard.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Although the 2014 Subaru Tribeca is aging, it still feels invigorating for a larger SUV. This family hauler's handling is responsive and its steering feels satisfyingly firm. Throwing this big Subie into a corner yields some body lean, but overall the Tribeca inspires confidence thanks to its low center of gravity and standard AWD system. Subaru's sophisticated AWD system has made many believers in the brand with its ability to get a grip in snowy conditions. The Tribeca's version is tailored to normally split power in a 45/55 proportion that favors the rear wheels. If a tire loses grip, such as on a slippery road, the Subaru automatically and immediately transfers power to the wheels with the best traction. The Tribeca's 3.6-liter engine delivers good performance thanks to its 256 horsepower, and shift points of the 5-speed automatic transmission have been improved vs. previous versions.

Favorite Features

Beyond the expected 60/40-split tumbling feature, the Tribeca's 2nd-row seatbacks fold down individually in a 40/20/40 configuration, allowing the narrow middle section to make way for skis or divide a pair of arguing kids. The seats also slide fore-aft nearly eight inches, and the seatbacks recline for further passenger comfort and cargo flexibility.

While most mainstream cars now offer leather, it often costs extra or is reserved for higher level – and higher-priced – trims. Every 2014 Tribeca, however, features leather-trimmed upholstery standard for the first and second rows.
