Striking styling for Subaru SUV

 

Subaru’s strikingly-styled Tribeca, with its three-element snout, takes the respected Japanese all-wheel drive marque further into the sports utility vehicle (SUV) market.

The five plus two seat wagon is aimed at the luxury SUV buyer and sits alongside the established and successful Forester compact 4x4. Subaru is offering only one Tribeca model in New Zealand.

The $69,990 wagon has leather upholstery and standard equipment includes a DVD system for second and third row passengers. Power comes from the 3.0-litre H6 Boxer flat six motor used in the range-topping Legacy and Outback models.
The 180kW motor drives through a five-speed Sportshift automatic gearbox, and fulltime symmetrical all wheel drive is standard.

Other standard kit includes variable torque distribution, vehicle dynamics control and traction control systems.

The Tribeca has 215mm of ground clearance, making it a useful performer off-road and rides on 18-inch alloy wheels shod with 255/55 R18 tyres.
Front suspension uses long-travel MacPherson struts and at the rear is a new double wishbone multi-link set-up.

Standard equipment includes foglights and large rear view mirrors which incorporate indicator lights. The headlights have separate low and high beam reflectors.

Tinted privacy glass is used on the side and back windows and the front and rear wipers have de-icers and speed sensitive intermittent modes.

The Tribeca has a sunroof, rear spoiler and body coloured front and rear bumpers. Its 2750mm wheelbase is the longest on a Subaru, and is 80mm longer than the Outback’s. The Tribeca is 125mm longer than the Outback at 4855mm. It’s 110mm wider at 1880mm, and 140mm higher than an Outback at 1685mm.

Braking is provided by ventilated discs on all four wheels with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist.

The Tribeca is available in a choice of five colours – satin white pearl, titanium silver, newport blue pearl, obsidian black pearl and harvest gold opal, with complementary charcoal or ivory
leather upholstery, depending on the exterior colour choice.

A wrap around dashboard and centre console dominates the Tribeca interior design, and has won it awards in the United States, where it is made at Subaru of America’s Indiana factory.

The versatile seating options include a second row which is split 40/20/40 and can be folded flat. It also has 200mm of fore and aft adjustment to vary the amount of legroom for second and third row occupants. The rear two seats have a 50:50 split and can be folded flat.

A security blind covers the cargo area, and luggage space can be varied from 450 litres to 1495 litres by reconfiguring the seating.

Safety gear includes front seat active head restraints, dual front and side airbags and curtain airbags, a roll-over sensor, pretensioned and load-limited front seatbelts and three-point belts on all other seats
Standard equipment includes dual-zone climate control air-conditioning with separate rear seat controls and vents, a nine-speaker sound system with six-disc CD player with audio controls on the
steering wheel, which is leather covered and height adjustable.

An auxiliary jack-point allows iPod or MP3 players to be used through the
Tribeca’s sound system.

Cruise control, electro-luminescent instrumentation, remote control central locking with auto tailgate operation, an immobiliser security system and data dots are all standard.
There is power steering, windows and mirrors, which are also heated, heated driver and front passenger seats, which have eight way electric adjustment with dual memory settings on the driver’s seat.

Under floor storage compartments at the rear are concealed and there are numerous console boxes, trays and other storage areas throughout the spacious cabin.

The DVD system which has a nine-inch screen comes with two wireless headsets and a remote control.

Subaru of New Zealand general manager, Steve Rickards says the Tribeca allows
the company to “offer a car to customers who might never have considered a Subaru before. Having a seven seater in our model range for the first time opens up a new section of the market to us.

Until now, Subaru has been unable to provide more than a five seat car (and we) know we have lost some of our customers to other brands once they required a larger vehicle with more seats.”
Subaru’s Tribeca takes its name from a section of New York city. New York’s TriBeCa is an abbreviation of “triangle below canal street”, a triangle-shaped area south of Canal Street in Manhattan.

Originally a warehouse neighbourhood, it has been reinvented as one of New York’s most desirable residential areas.

A 2006 Forbes Magazine ranking listed the 10013 Zip Code in TriBeCa as the 12th most expensive in the United States.
