2017 Subaru Tribeca Review

The Japanese automaker has announced its new model which is going to be the 2017 Subaru Tribeca. This is a car which is labeled as a seven-seat SUV model which is bringing some interesting new ideas for the design language of the company. In fact we see this model as a combination of a Legacy sedan and the Outback which comes together in order to create the Tribeca car.

The model is going to be featured in the European and Asian markets first, but there is still no mention of a US release date. The growing demand of luxury cars which are endowed with modern features is getting large and larger in this segment. The automakers has decided that it would be best to go the direction that the needs of the market and the fans are showing so a newly developed Tribeca is a very suitable solution.

As the next generation of Subaru cars is getting prepared and most of them have already received their release dates, the 2017 Subaru Tribeca is the last model that gets its configuration. As such it may prove to be a dark horse in the running and overtake some of the larger and more popular cars in the segment. Makes sure to read the entire review so you can get familiar with what the new 2017 Tribeca has to offer.


The newest 2017 Subaru Tribeca receives a genuine design. The car sports a combination of the features seen on the Subaru Legacy and Outback models and can in a way be regarded as a combination of the two. But in fact it has a lot of its own that makes it a standalone car. What they have introduced here is the addition of some lightweight materials and aluminum inclusions which guarantee a great performance for the car.

The exterior of the car is more than attractive and there are some exterior features which improve the aerodynamics of the vehicle and make it much more drivable. Subaru has introduced a new structure plan for the Tribeca which actually upgrades its performance immensely and sees that it all works well together. The grille design is great and very unique and has been painted black and includes four openings for a very attractive shape.

The headlight design is also pretty great as the model adds some spectacular looking headlights which resemble the ones seen on a sports car and it is even better when we see that they add LED technology which improves the vision of the car. Finally, the final piece of the puzzle is a set of 17-inch wheels, aluminum alloy ones, which are very light and sport a new design as well.


The interior of the 2017 Subaru Tribeca has also been updated and sees some improvements. It is absolutely fascinating to see how well they have improved the interior as they have gone beyond any current Subaru models on the market. The dash has an array of controls and buttons added and we can see a pretty great layout with two speedometers and a new gearbox. The luxury dashboard fits in pretty nicely into the whole design and brings an added premium feel for the passengers.

There are also going to be some special features added like for instance weather updates, automatic temperature control, satellite radio, GPS and GSM, adjustable seats and a newly updated infotainment system. Within the infotainment section is going to add a large HD display of 7-inches and there are also going to be  6 speakers that come with a digital sound setup. The driver has the use of Google Maps and Navigation as well making the complete setup something that both the driver and the passengers are able to enjoy.

Engine specs

At first there was many secrecy about the engine setup but the we were able to find out just what the 2017 Subaru Tribeca is going to use. The surprising update under the hood is a 3.6 liters fuel capacity engine with 6-Inline technology. This is something which is going to bring a balanced performance for the car and introduce some great fuel economy stats. Unfortunately, there are no horsepower specs available as this news is completely fresh and will be released once the release date is established. Another piece of information which was released is that there is going to be a CVT transmission thrown into the mix, which is going to account for 40 miles per gallon or 51 miles per gallon on highway as the EPA ratings suggest.

Release date and price

With the main rivals closing by, the 2017 Subaru Tribeca offers a very good and potent setup. We might have to still wait a while in order to get a US release but for now the Asian and European markets are going to be lucky to have it. A price between $35,000 to $45,000 is an affordable one for the car and is going to make many people happy. The release date is still not known officially, but some suggestions say that it will emerge in 2017 and that the car starts its sales in the home country of Japan first.
