A mid-sized crossover sports utility vehicle, the Tribeca was sold between 2005 and 2014 and was created by the Japanese car manufacturer Subaru.

Also known as the Subaru B9 Tribecca, the ‘B9’ harks back to its early concept car days, when Subaru released the concept as the B9X.

Named after a district in New York, the Tribecca dropped the ‘B9’ due to a poor response after consumer testing.

Sharing the front grille with the Subaru Impreza and the Subaru R2 Kei Car, the Tribeca had a 3-liter boxer engine mated to a 5-speed automatic gearbox.

2008 saw an update that was unveiled at the New York International Auto Show a year earlier in 2007. This facelift had minor cosmetic changes along with a change in engine type, the Tribeca now sported a 3.6-liter flat-six engine capable of producing 256 bhp. This new engine configuration boasted 10% better fuel economy.

In the USA, just two trim levels could be purchased, the Base or the Limited. The latter featured a moon roof, a leather interior, roof rails and a premium audio set up with a 6-disc CD changer built into the dashboard. An in-dash screen displayed the outside temperature and internally, the car had room to install a third row of seating, opening up the suitability for larger families. To further appeal to the family market, the safety package was good, with 6 airbags installed about the car.

Production ended for America in January 2012, with Australia following suit in the December of the same year. Slow sales were the ultimate reason why the model was discontinued, and Subaru brought out a replacement that was better suited to compete with the likes of the Ford Explorer and the Nissan Pathfinder.
