Subaru Tribeca Overview

The Tribeca handles very well and has a composed, steady ride, but overall it doesn't compete that well against other three-row SUVs. The six-cylinder engine and automatic transmission make a decent powertrain, but it returns just 16 mpg overall. Handling is quite agile, with nice steering feel and restrained body lean. The ride is supple and very well controlled. Fit and finish is very good, but the second- and third-row seats are cramped. It's a long reach to the navigation system's touch screen. The styling of the dashboard makes some controls difficult to see. This is the final year for the Tribeca.
