Expert Quotes:

Five stars, front and side impacts

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

“The Tribeca comes with a variety of standard safety features”
Cars.com

The 2010 Subaru Tribeca benefits from top marks in federal front- and side-impact tests, a constant all-wheel drive that comes as standard, and a ton of safety systems. Unsurprisingly, the mid-size crossover is one of the safest vehicles not only in its class, but in the entire market.

The strong crash-test results are only part of the story, however. Where the 2010 Subaru Tribeca also shines is in its long list of available and standard safety features. Cars.com reviewers report that the Tribeca comes with “six standard airbags, including side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags for first- and second-row passengers but not for third-row passengers.” 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.

In addition to the inflatable protection, ConsumerGuide says that "antilock four-wheel disc brakes" and “electronic stability and traction control” are included on all Subaru Tribecas. Edmunds points out that there is a “rollover-sensing program” as well.

When it comes to rearward visibility, crossovers and SUVs usually fall short. Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, however, show that the 2010 Subaru Tribeca offers a surprisingly good field of view. ConsumerGuide claims there is "good outward visibility thanks to big mirrors and unobtrusive rear headrests."

It’s not all praise for the 2010 Subaru Tribeca. MotherProof has some complaints about the child car seat LATCH connectors inside the Subaru, stating that “two sets of connectors in the second row's outboard seating positions are practically inaccessible...why didn't they give us some LATCH connectors that are actually useable?"

Conclusion

The 2010 Subaru Tribeca is one of the safest vehicles in its class, with its assortment of standard safety features garnering great crash-test ratings.

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.
