2007 Subaru B9 Tribeca review and picture


In such a highly competitive market, midsize crossover sports utility vehicles have to do something to stand out from the crowd put out every year by car makers. The way that the 2007 Subaru B9 Tribeca accomplishes this is by its distinctive styling, which is less rounder and clunky looking than your typical crossover SUV. Even with this, though, it has plenty of things going on under the surface that should take it out of the market, such as poor accelerating abilities and little cabin room.

The Good:

  • well designed exterior
  • good looking interior with good materials
  • long list of features

The Bad:

  • goes slower when you take advantage of cargo space
  • power is uneven
  • too expensive for what it offers
  • not much leg space in rear seats

Practically nothing is new for the Subaru B9 Tribeca in the 2007 model year, although there are a couple of differences between this year and last that are worth noting. Every trim comes standard this year with XM satellite radio and an auxiliary audio input jack for those who have MP3 players. A rearview camera and front seat memory is now a standard feature on the Limited trim level, and a remote sensor and keyless ignition have been added to the options list. Anti rollover and brake assist now come standard on all trims.

The 2007 Subaru B9 Tribeca is a midsize crossover sports utility vehicle that comes in two trims with the options of either five passenger seating or seven. The base trim level comes with the following features standard:

  • sunroof
  • dual zone automatic climate control
  • cruise control
  • power front seats

Next in the line is the Limited trim level of the B9 Tribeca, which adds:

  • leather seating
  • six disc CD changer

The 2007 Subaru B9 Tribeca did great on government crash tests, pulling out five stars out of five on both frontal and side impact tests. It comes with plenty of safety features standard, including all wheel drive, rollover sensor, traction and stability control, and antilock disc brakes with brake assist. Finally are the exceptional airbags, with front seat side and side curtain airbags for optimum protection.
