2011 Subaru Tribeca vs. Its Competition

Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The mid-size SUV and crossover segment is one of the most hotly contested markets right now, although many of the competing vehicles are a bit lacking in the personality department.

The Toyota Highlander is one such vehicle; it comes in two- and three-row versions and has an available V-6 and as well as a hybrid option.

The Honda Pilot is one of the most admired crossovers available and even manages to squeeze in eight seats.

The Nissan Murano was redesigned recently, but it still 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.

Quick Specs
With the 2011 Subaru Tribeca, first-class safety credentials and excellent all-weather handling ensure your precious ones are looked after, but if you need more than five seats, we suggest going with a bigger vehicle.
Provided you don't need a third-row seat, the 2011 Ford Edge is at last, at the leading edge of mid-size crossovers, with one of the best driver interfaces in the business.
If you can get past the garish grille and overwrought look, the 2011 Honda Pilot is a fine family vehicle, with minivan-like interior space and decent performance.
The 2011 Nissan Murano isn't the most practical choice among crossovers, but it's a gem for style and refinement.
The very family-friendly Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid impress us with their space and versatility, but show no sign of enthusiasm.
