The suspension is very soft...which makes the Tribeca drive much larger than it actually is.
Car and Driver
Front seats provide ample padding and support, but taller folk may find their driving position compromised by a non-telescoping steering wheel
plenty of headroom and legroom in the front and back seats, though the third row is a little cramped
The second row is spacious, with lots of legroom for tall adults, and the leather seats are firm like the front buckets.
There are many crossovers on the market that make better use of interior space than the 2013 Tribeca, although for a model that's at the small end of mid-size it's roomy enough for growing families and has a footprint that's pretty easy to park.
Third-row occupants will need to haggle for space, as the second-row bench slides fore and aft a total of eight inches (and adjusts for rake). If no one's all that tall, you can fit up to seven. Front seats are comfortable and supportive, but the slow curves of the instrument panel cut into knee space.
Ride quality is good—as well as top 3.6R versions of the Outback—although interior materials and trims are no longer a standout in any way.
The 2013 Tribeca can hold up to seven, but those in the second and third rows may have to seek mediation.
