Written by David Ross on

Rivalling cars like the Nissan Murano and Lexus RX, the Subaru Tribeca uses the same 3.0-litre six-cylinder 'boxer' engine as found in the Legacy linked to a five-speed automatic transmission. It has permanent four-wheel drive, but has been designed for on-road use rather than driving off road. In fact Subaru's own Legacy Outback model is more of an off-road vehicle than the Tribeca.

The plush looking interior has soothing, flowing lines, but the exterior styling jars, with heavy-handed details at the front and a fussy tailgate area which makes the car look larger than it is. The vague steering lets it down on the road and it lacks the driver appeal you'd expect given Subaru's reputation for keen handling cars.
