Outward visibility...notably better than most competing crossover SUVs

the sporty styling leaves the Tribeca with enormous blind spots over the driver's shoulder, and the oversized side mirrors don't do enough to compensate

Subaru in general has a great record for safety, and the 2011 Subaru Tribeca is no exception. It benefits from top results in major crash tests, as well as a full roster of safety features—plus standard all-wheel drive.

The Tribeca gets nothing but top 'good' marks from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's (IIHS), and . On top of that, the Tribeca boasts a ton of standard safety features, including side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags for first- and second-row passengers but not for third-row passengers. We advise opting for the rearview camera, which makes those pesky reverse parking maneuvers a breeze.

The Tribeca hasn't yet been rated by the federal government, as part of the stricter crash-test ratings system being phased in for the 2011 model year, but under the former system the Tribeca achieved top five-star results in all categories for frontal and side impact.


It doesn’t get much better than this; the 2011 Subaru Tribeca is one of the safest vehicles in its class.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
