Even many years after its introduction, the Tribeca remains one of the safest picks among crossovers. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave it Top Safety Pick status again last year, although the federal government hasn't tested it under its revised ratings system introduced a couple of years ago.
The Tribeca includes anti-lock brakes and various other electronic safety systems, and six airbags, although it's worth pointing out that the third-row airbags don't cover the third-row positions.
We recommend the rear-view camera system for driveway visibility, as outward vision can be challenging for shorter drivers. A brake-override system has been added for 2013.
