Product Overview

Subaru B9 Tribeca is a mid-size crossover in production from 2006 to 2007, whereupon it received a facelift and became the Subaru Tribeca. It was available with a single flat-6 engines that displaced 3.0 liters paired to a 5-speed automatic transmission in AWD guise.
A large part of the reason that owners purchase the Subaru B9 Tribeca is the flat-6 (H6) engine, which has very low center of gravity, instant power response, and perfect smoothness. It should be noted that the H6 engine is not a true "boxer" engine, as the opposing cylinders share the same crank pin.
Those who drive offroad, for work or leisure, will appreciate the good approach, departure, and breakover angles that the chassis offers. Owners may find that at speed the vehicle consumes a lot more than the numbers indicate, thanks to a disappointing 0.38 coefficient of drag to show for it.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Subaru B9 Tribeca comes with double-wishbone suspensions at all four corners.

External Reviews


Sentiment Score 35%
Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The Subaru Tribeca is designed to compete with BMW's X3. The base price of £29,097 is significantly cheaper than any of its rivals. The 3.0-litre is a flat six, rather than a V6 which most rivals will use. There's no diesel, which may not be a problem in the US, but it certainly won't help the Tribeca win many friends in Europe.
