About Subaru Tribeca
The B9 Tribeca offers good around-town driving performance and a slew of safety features (including Subaru’s legendary standard All-Wheel Drive), but it costs more than most competitors. If you’re looking for a low-cost SUV, consider the highly rated (but classically fashioned) Honda Pilot and GMC Acadia. Consider the Nissan Murano and Mazda CX-7 for a stylish appearance.
The 2007 Subaru B9 Tribeca, a midsize crossover (CUV), earns generally positive reviews in terms of performance, interior, and safety, while many critics disagree over its outward appearance. In response to criticism, Subaru redesigned the SUV and omitted the “B9” from the moniker beginning with the 2008 model year.
The Tribeca, which was introduced in 2006, has been praised for its in-town driving, however others criticize the driving experience on rougher roads and acceleration at higher speeds. However, critics unanimously rank the Tribeca’s safety features as excellent, as well as its pleasant cabin. “This thing works like a charm,” says the Los Angeles Times, and Car & Driver calls it “exciting to drive and simple to live with.”
New Car Test Drive reports that “All Subaru models are fairly expensive, but we believe they provide excellent value in terms of technology, handling, foul-weather competence, and durability. The Tribeca Film Festival is no exception.” According to Kelley Blue Book, the 2007 model will have “excellent resale value, on pace with the Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot, and better than the Hyundai Santa Fe and Mitsubishi Outlander.” However, when compared to comparable vehicles in its class, IntelliChoice gave the 2007 Tribeca a “lower than average” value rating for its estimated five-year total cost of ownership.
The 2007 Subaru B9 Tribeca comes in two major trim levels: the Tribeca and the Tribeca Limited. Both are available in five- and seven-passenger configurations.
