For the 2012 version, exterior and interior modifications to the Subaru Tribeca Touring Limited SUV have been reviewed as superficial with the one that stands out the most is the Tribeca's grille, which now has a dramatic swept back look that dominates the entire facade of the vehicle.
The Subaru Tribeca Touring Limited SUV is again exemplified by its understated side panels sitting comfortably above the crossover's elegantly styled wheel aches and state of the art seven spoked alloy wheels. The rear view of the Tribeca Touring Limited SUV is dominated by an out of the ordinarily shaped rear spoiler, poised above the rear window and tail gate combination.
Standard features on the Subaru Tribeca Touring Crossover include cruise control, moonroof, HID headlights, rearview camera with monitor imbedded in the rearview mirror, power windows ,power heated outside mirrors for cold climates, dual-zone automatic climate control , leather seating for the first two rows, an eight-way power adjustable driver's seat, coming with manual lumbar adjustment and integral heating, four-way power passenger's seat, also coming with manual lumbar adjustment and integral heating, reclining second-row seats for three in 40/20/40 proportion, third row seats for two in 50/50 split, separate rear-seat air conditioner with outlets in the headliner and separate fan speed control, fog lights, seven-spoke alloy wheels with P255/55HR18 Goodyear Eagle LS2 all-season tires, a tire pressure monitoring system, power door locks, remote keyless entry, a state of the art driver information center, tilting steering wheel with redundant radio controls, a super 100-watt powerful AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo system, complete with six speakers, an auxiliary input jack.
Safety has always been a very strong feature with Subaru, and the Tribeca Touring Limited SUV is no exception with every model coming with the following features as standard- Subaru's Vehicle Dynamics Control, Variable Torque Distribution on all-wheel drive, all-wheel traction control, antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), dual stage front airbags, dual stage front side airbags, active head restraints, that automatically push forward and up in the event of a rear end collision and curtain airbags for both rows of back seats
The 2012 Subaru Tribeca Touring Limited SUV version gets a clean bill of health in most reviews, with just a few minor problems to be sorted out the next time the Tribeca gets an update. Certainly, the vast majority of serious faults that earned the Series Two Subaru Tribeca Touring Limited SUV some fairly shocking reviews, are just a very vague memory for those who went for the Series Three version.
