Outward visibility...notably better than most competing crossover SUVs
Edmunds

the sporty styling leaves the Tribeca with enormous blind spots over the driver's shoulder, and the oversized side mirrors don't do enough to compensate
MSN Autos


The Tribeca remains one of the safest picks among crossovers, and that's held even for many years after its original introduction.

Standard safety equipment includes anti-lock brakes and various other electronic systems, as well as six airbags--although it's worth pointing out that the third-row airbags don't cover the third-row positions. Last year, a brake-override system feature was added.

Outward vision can be challenging, especially for short drivers, so we recommend the available rearview camera system.

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.

Conclusion

The Tribeca has a good safety kit, but it hasn't been crash-tested in years.

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.
