2012 Subaru Tribeca Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

With only a six-cylinder engine on offer, the 2012 Subaru Tribeca is the brand's heaviest and least fuel-efficient model, and it shows. The EPA rates all models of the Tribeca at 16 mpg city, 21 mpg highway, for a combined gas-mileage rating of just 18 mpg. The highway mileage especially is now below the best in the class, and while mid-size crossovers with six-cylinder engines and all-wheel drive are never going to match the fuel economy of compact crossovers, the Tribeca is now below average in gas mileage. One mitigating factor: It runs on standard unleaded gasoline, unlikely certain luxury sport-utilities that specify premium fuel.
