Subaru has been quite a famous and not to mention successful name in the automobile world, and has also made quite an impact on the market with its extremely famous Outback SUV. However, the Subaru Tribeca did not become the second Outback for the company as they had expected. Even after being in the market for over a few years now, theSubaru Tribeca SUV hasn’t quite made a name yet, proving to be one of the least successful vehicles launched by the company. Launched with a unique and not much liked face, the SUV underwent a face lift, gaining it some name. Now the company has made impressive changes in the interiors of the SUV, hoping for a better outcome for the vehicle.
Although extremely beautiful, the SUV’s interiors are not as spacious as one might expect them to be. A dashboard made of organic material shines in the front as it holds the controls and the screen to the central console. One might remarkably make out the modern look that the interiors feature. However, as mentioned above, the Subaru Tribeca does not feature a lot of space. Although there is a third row of seats in the rear, but it is not suitable for adults at all. Only small children can fit in comfortably, and the third row is also to be blamed for the small boot space. The Tribeca features a boot space less than half than the other SUVs of the same category feature, just 8.3 cubic feet!
The new 2014 Tribeca SUV comes with an impressive 3600cc engine with six cylinders arranged flatly. The engine is capable of producing a power of 256 horsepower at 6000 rpm and a torque of 247 lb. – ft. at 4400 rpm. This engine is mated with Subaru’s all-wheel drive system and a five speed automatic transmission. One thing that gives the Subaru Tribeca an edge above others is the fact that it offers a very sharp and smooth ride. It feels and handles remarkably leaner than it is actually otherwise. However, the low mileage that it features (16 miles per gallon in city and 21 miles per gallon on highway) pulls it down back to where it was.
The 2014 SubaruTribeca SUV however features quite an impressive array of features in the interiors as well as exteriors. The front seats of the SUV come with power adjustment buttons as well as temperature control. You get a 385 watt 10-speaker audio system with features like auxiliary input. The system also supports Bluetooth connectivity. You will also enjoy an automatic climate control system. You can also opt for the optional navigational package which will bring to your SUV excellent features like a 7 inch display navigation system, rear camera, a nine inch ceiling display and a DVD player. On the exteriors, you will find a 18 inch alloy wheel set as well as fog lamps. The vehicle is also loaded with impressive safety features like traction and stability control system as well as airbags in the front, front side as well full length on the sides of the vehicle.
The Subaru Tribeca has faced intense competition from vehicles like the Mazda CX-9 and the Dodge Durango, and hasn’t been very much successful yet. Let’s see what 2014 brings for the company!
