Summer 2005 Forward to a Friend


The center console’s graceful arcing “Y” shape flows from the center console into the front door panels and extends into the third-row seating area. The shape creates a cockpit-like feel for the driver and front passenger and adds to the quality appearance of the interior.

Silver metallic trim on the center console, dashboard and doors enhance the interior’s unique appearance.

Electroluminescent instrument-panel displays enhance legibility for immediate information and lend a quality feel to the driver’s environment.

A flexible interior with split-folding seats allows for as many as 64 unique seating and cargo configurations (7-Passenger models), adding to convenience for hauling a variety of loads.

The grille represents the cross-section of an aircraft’s fuselage and wings, recalling the heritage of Subaru as an aircraft manufacturer and emphasizing our commitment to engineering excellence.

The arcing roofline expresses dynamic motion, enhancing the vehicle’s sporty appearance.

Chrome door handles are standard, highlighting the high level of finished detail on each B9 Tribeca.

The rear glass has a three-dimensional surface that emphasizes the dynamic character of the vehicle.

The low, sloping hood line emphasizes the Subaru Boxer® engine’s low center of gravity, which improves handling.

Contoured, projector beam headlights add a sense of presence to the front end as well as provide a powerful and precise lighting pattern for improved illumination and active safety.

Large wheel openings complement the vehicle’s Symmetrical AWD driving system.

Tires are larger than standard tires on any previous Subaru model. The P255/55 R18 all-season radials give the B9 Tribeca an athletic stance and confer outstanding grip.

The 18-inch wheels and long wheelbase contribute to the vehicle’s agility and stability.

The doors have window frames, which allow larger openings for easier access through the rear doors to the two rear rows of seats.

The black lower trim and rounded lower door panels emphasize the 8.4 inches of ground clearance, which enhances maneuverability.
