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
Edmunds

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 do it far better than the 2014 Subaru 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 makes parking quite easy. 

Accommodations in the front and second-row seats are impressive, with comfortable and supportive front seats (although the swooping curves of the dash cut into knee space). Second-row seats are nicely contoured and just fine for adults.

On the other hand, third-row occupants will need to haggle for space, as the second-row bench slides fore and aft several inches (and adjusts for rake). Better hope that those in the second row aren't too long-legged.

The Tribeca is a relatively quiet vehicle, but like many crossover designs of its time, it's a little lacking on noise and vibration as you move to the rearmost seats (you'll hear a little more road noise back there). Ride quality is good—as well or better as in top 3.6R versions of the Outback. But we tend to prefer the interior materials and trims you get in the Outback, actually. In the Tribeca, they're no longer standout.

 

Conclusion

Those in the second and third rows may have to seek mediation if you plan to use all the seating spaces.

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.
