2014 Subaru Tribeca vs. Its Competition

2014 Subaru Tribeca
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The 2014 Subaru Tribeca is a mid-size crossover with third-row seat.

It's also the most dated vehicle amongst its competitors.

The Toyota Highlander also has an optional third row, and it's built with a variety of drivetrains–including a Hybrid variant.

The Honda Pilot looks a little more like a traditional SUV, but it makes the most of its interior space, thanks to its boxy exterior design.

The Ford Edge only offers seating for five, but it feels more luxurious than other cars in the segment.

Finally, there's the Nissan Murano, with its well-appointed interior and style flowing design that almost makes it look like a premium market contender.

The 2014 Nissan Murano is stylish and refined, but lacks some of the space and efficiency found in competitors.
8.2
The 2014 Toyota Highlander covers familiar territory, without straying too far into Adventure Land.
