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
The look and feel of the 2014 Subaru Tribeca aren't the only dated aspects; this vehicle is also living in the past with its mileage ratings. Most crossovers the Tribeca's size now get at least a mile or two more out of each gallon.
The Tribeca is the brand's heaviest and least fuel-efficient model, and it shows. The EPA rates the Tribeca, which is only offered with a six-cylinder engine and all-wheel drive, at 16 mpg city, 21 mpg highway, for a combined gas-mileage rating of just 18 mpg. 2014 Outback versions with the same six-cylinder engine get 17/25 mpg; and the Outback offers a more efficient base four that achieves 24/30.
Even compared to other manageable three-row vehicles, the mileage of the 2014 Subaru Tribeca isn't all that.
