Features are extensive in this Subaru; the 2009 Tribeca comes fairly well equipped, though at a high starting price. New for 2009 is a Special Edition (SE) that adds leather seating, heated front seats, memory driver’s seat, a six-disc audio system, and rear air conditioning to the base model. But, TheCarConnection.com notes, a fully integrated Bluetooth hands-free interface still isn’t offered on the Tribeca.
In addition to Tribeca's standard safety features, all-wheel drive, and powertrain, other standard equipment on the Subaru 2009 Tribeca includes 18-inch alloys, dual-zone automatic climate control, "power front seats, full power accessories, cruise control, a CD/MP3 player with auxiliary input jack, a 7-inch LCD display screen and keyless entry," reports Edmunds.
Limited trim adds, among other things, a moonroof, roof rails, leather, better speakers, an in-dash CD player, HomeLink, and front seat heaters with memory for the driver seat. In seven-passenger models, it adds a 50/50 split third row and rear climate controls with air conditioning.
Kelley Blue Book says notable options for the Subaru 2009 Tribeca in base trim include a choice of XM or Sirius Satellite Radio, reverse assist sensors, auto-dimming mirror, and remote start. For the Limited trim, options include GPS navigation, rearview camera, and rear-seat DVD system (on seven-passenger models only).
