2012 Subaru Tribeca Features

8.0
Features

Standard features are a definite strong point in the 2012 Subaru Tribeca. There are three trim levels--from the bottom up, Premium, Limited, and Touring--and all come standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, power adjustable and heated front seats, fog lights, and of course that third-row seat as well. All models come with the 256-horsepower, 3.6-liter flat-six engine and five-speed automatic transmission.

The "base" Premium model can be optioned up with leather upholstery, a six-disc stereo system, and a separate rear air-conditioning system. The navigation system is not offered on the Premium trim level, however. Moving up to Limited adds standard roof rails for cargo carriers, better speakers and Bluetooth hands-free connectivity for the stereo, a moonroof, leather upholstery, a 50/50 split third-row seat back, and the rear climate-control system. The optional 385-Watt sound system comes with 10 speakers and satellite radio tuning. Finally, the Touring model features seven-spoke alloy wheels and the moonroof, plus the optional navigation system and reversing camera.

For a Subaru, the 2012 Tribeca can get pricey at the high end, but the list of standard equipment on most models is generous.

Base price of the Premium model is roughly $31,000 with delivery, but a fully optioned 3.6R Touring model can run close to $40,000--pricey for a Subaru, though not out-of-line with the highest-end models of some competing seven-seat crossovers.
