SAFETY | 10 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

Five stars, front and side impacts
NHTSA

Top Safety Pick; "good" rating for frontal offset and side impact results
IIHS

With the highest ratings in front- and side-impact tests, standard full-time all-wheel drive, and a full complement of safety systems, the 2009 Subaru Tribeca is one of the safest crossovers on the market.

Safety is great, but day-to-day usability is another story. MotherProof takes issue with the child car seat LATCH connectors inside the Subaru: 2009’s Tribeca has “two sets of connectors in the second row's outboard seating positions [that] are practically inaccessible...why didn't they give us some LATCH connectors that are actually useable?"

According to Edmunds, every 2009 Subaru Tribeca "comes with [ABS] with brake assist, traction control, stability control and a rollover-sensing program." Cars.com reports that "side curtain airbags are also standard, but they only deploy over the first and second rows." This is something to consider if you plan to transport children in the third row. Side airbags are available only for the front row, as well.

Conclusion

The 2009 Subaru Tribeca is one of the safest crossovers on the market, even without third-row airbags.

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.
