The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.6
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. The 2009 Nissan Murano combines good handling and a recognizable style with a much more sophisticated interior.
