Car and Driver
Our Tribeca spent most of its time in congested city traffic and confirmed its EPA number with an average of 15.9 mpg in our care.
most of the driving was on the highway at speeds approaching 80 mph, and the Tribeca averaged 21 mpg
Even if shoppers can get over the somewhat dated look and feel of the 2013 Subaru Tribeca, the mileage figures on its window sticker might be cause for disappointment.
With only a six-cylinder engine on offer, the Tribeca is the brand's heaviest and least fuel-efficient model, and it shows. The EPA rates 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 gas mileage of the 2013 Tribeca is nothing to boast about--even compared to other manageable three-row vehicles.
