Declaration for Success – Subaru Dealer Meeting, 2006



Highlighting numerous enhancements, Subaru introduced the 2007 B9 Tribeca at the Chicago Auto Show in February. Changes to the first-ever Subaru SUV with available seating for seven passengers include new safety technology, more refined styling, added comfort and convenience and improved handling.

Safety

The B9 Tribeca has already earned the highest rating of five stars in both the frontal and side-impact New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) crash tests (both driver and passenger seating positions). These tests were conducted by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The vehicle also earned a four-Star rating in the NHTSA tests for rollover resistance, which is the highest that any vehicle in its class has achieved.

For 2007, the Subaru B9 Tribeca adds a new rollover sensor system. If it detects a potential vehicle rollover, the system deploys the standard side-curtain air bags and sets the seatbelt pretensioners to anticipate the event.

In addition, Brake Assist is added to the B9 Tribeca’s list of active-safety features. In an emergency, Brake Assist increases hydraulic boost to enhance braking power.

Styling

The 2007 B9 Tribeca shows off a distinctive revised black grille that emphasizes the silhouette of its aircraft-inspired design. Even more distinctive is the new optional Special Edition Package, which includes a chrome/polished stainless-steel mesh grille, 18" chrome-finish alloy wheels and an XM® Satellite Radio.

Comfort and Convenience

All 2007 B9 Tribeca models are pre-wired for an XM Satellite Radio receiver. They also all have a new console-mounted auxiliary jack to connect portable audio players to the audio system.

An auxilary jack for digital audio players is standard for 2007.
Another convenience feature added to the seating system is two-position memory for the standard power-adjustable driver’s seat.

2007 B9 Tribeca Limited models with the optional navigation system include a rear vision camera. When the transmission is placed in reverse, the navigation system’s display becomes the monitor for the color camera. It shows where the vehicle is backing, with reference lines showing 1.0-, 2.0- and 3.0-meter increments as well as vehicle width. These help guide the driver while backing up.

Ultrasonic Reverse Assist Sensors are available for any B9 Tribeca model as an accessory for 2007. Mounted in the rear bumper, the sensors detect objects behind the vehicle. As the vehicle approaches an object, the frequency of the Reverse Assist system’s audible tones increases, alerting the driver.

Two other new accessories for the 2007 B9 Tribeca are a remote starter feature and a shade-type retractable rear cargo cover.
