2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca Overview

Subaru's new entry into the crossover SUV club is also the carmaker's first seven-passenger vehicle. The 2007 B9 Tribeca comes standard with two rows of seating, but an optional third row allows you to pack in even more neighborhood kids. Like all Subarus, it comes standard with all-wheel drive. The B9 Tribeca features a 3.0-liter, 250-hp flat-six engine mated to a 5-speed automatic.
Based on a Legacy platform, the 2007 B9 Tribeca is trying to appeal to fans of the Legacy and Outback who want more passenger room. Though the third row limits legroom and is really only meant for small children or large Cabbage Patch dolls, when it is out, the second row can move back and forth up to eight inches. This row also folds in a 40/20/40 configuration depending on your cargo needs. The Tribeca comes in a base and Limited model. Standard across the line are traction and stability control, dual front, side, and curtain airbags, a sunroof, power front seats, and leather trim. Moving up the scale adds heated leather seats and the optional navigation system and DVD player. The dashboard flows ito the center console in a wraparound fashion, with a central recessed navigation screen (when you choose this option).
Some owners love the looks of the 2007 B9 Tribeca, while others compare its front end to a boring minivan. The car-like handling, low step-in height, and comfortable interior layout are highlights, but the all-wheel drive capability outshines everything else. Unimpressive fuel economy is a common complaint, though to be expected. Rear blind spots and cramped legroom with the seven-passenger seating are also mentioned negatively.
