B9 Tribeca

Discussion in 'Subaru Tribeca' started by Jerre Bassler, Jan 23, 2005.

  1. In the latest Drive magazine from Subaru it shows the new B9 Tribeca.
    If this is the future of Subaru, I think I will looking at other cars.
    Several show cars have been shown using this new look for Subaru. What
    a shame. These designers should be fired. After giving us the great new
    Legacy, how could they come up with that ugly front end look.
    I think Subaru is also deserting its base by trying to go upscale
    including the pricing of their cars. I think the future looks and higher
    pricing will kill this company again.
    I understand that Saab will also get this new car. Perhaps they will
    improve on the looks and you can count on a price improvement - higher
    yet.

    The nose is a little odd, but I like it.

    I don't so much dislike the Tribeca but I do wish they do something with that front end. I've been thinking about a Honda Pilot for my next
    car. I'm on my 2nd Subaru - a 99 SUS Ltd and my parents just got their 8 so we're deep into Subarus and I really would feel bad not getting
    another Subaru but thought about going to something bigger and love the Pilot... but now that I see the Tribeca, by the time I'm ready for a
    new car (hopefully another 3 or 4 years, as I'm just about to hit 100K miles on mine), the new model kinks will be worked out and it might
    be in the running.

    It looks like Nissan designers got a hold of it!

    only problem will be the price

    Aren't Subarus supposed to look strange? That used to be part of their
    appeal.

    I didn't think I'd be saying this, but I think it's well done (in front).
    The new look works. It's sure a relief after seeing that sporty car concept
    a year or so ago. That was really ugly. As for the rest of the Tribeca, I
    need to see one in the sheet metal. I look at the side view and think "Lexus
    RX 330." That's not a compliment. The back is slightly intriguing--overall,
    OK. Yep, price will be a problem. I still love my XT Premium. No big
    motivation to get something new now.

    Yeah, I think a lot of times people forget how bizzarre the old models
    looked. I kinda liked that.
