The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Subaru Tribeca has a different personality than other mid-size crossovers, and it’s worth consideration for those who haven’t found the right look and feel. If you don't require a third-row seat, the 2008 Ford Edge is a fashionable, satisfying alternative in the crowded pack of mid-size crossovers.
