Expert Quotes:

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
MSN Autos

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.

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.
