Pros: Lots of high-end standard features, including all-wheel drive and leather upholstery; good passenger room in the 1st and 2nd rows
Cons: Pricing is a bit steep compared to class competitors; mediocre interior materials don’t measure up to the best in the segment; engine is noisy when accelerating; 3rd-row seats are cramped and difficult to access
CG Says: Subaru’s slow-selling midsize SUV sees only one change for 2014: A sunroof is now standard. Subaru’s crossover SUV is pleasant to drive and includes many standard features. It’s not an especially quiet vehicle, though, and its interior design and materials may disappoint shoppers. Comparably equipped, many of Tribeca’s rivals are roomier, quieter, more refined, more fuel efficient, and similarly priced.
