The competition to the 2009 Subaru Tribeca is heated, although the segment includes many vehicles that are a bit lacking in personality.
The Toyota Highlander is one example; it comes in two- and three-row versions and has available V-6 and Hybrid versions, which broaden its appeal, but it’s certainly not engaging to drive.
The Nissan Murano sports a new look and features a beautiful new interior, but doesn't offer a third-row seat.
The Ford Edge has almost universally appealing good looks from the outside, but from the inside it’s not as quirky or fun to drive as the Tribeca.
