Subaru's spin on the
crossoverSUV weds the company's legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive System to a seven-passenger vehicle wrapped in a sleek shell. The B9 Tribeca is based on the Legacy/Outback platform, but features a longer wheelbase and a wider track. Unlike many
crossovers, the B9 Tribeca can actually tackle some pretty tough terrain, with over eight inches of ground clearance and an all-wheel-drive system that can route power between the front and rear wheels, depending on which set has the best traction. Although it can't tow as heavy a load as a traditional body-on-frame SUV, the B9 Tribeca does excel in the areas of passenger safety, comfort and economy.
"We leased this vehicle new three years ago and have now purchased it. It is primarily my wifes car although we use it for the family for ski and beach vacations. Currently has 22,000 trouble free miles on it. Been a great SUV. Love the room inside and the layout of the interior. Front grill is a bit ugly but the side lines and back are very attractive and well designed. Makes it hard to distinguish from the other high end SUVs (Lexus & Infinity). Very driveable car..excellent smooth braking system...only negative is the acceleration. It is has a tendency to pause for a second or so when accelerating from 20 or 30 MPH to enter onto a highway at speed. Once it gets past the pause however it speeds up very well. It is very comfortable for 5 people."
"I love my car I will not trade it until I can get a new Tribeca that gets better gas mileage. As of 2011 the gas mileage has not changes in newer models. I have looked around and can find a better value for my dollar. I love the way the Tribeca drives, it has all the luxury I could ask for.
Forever a Subaru Driver"
