    The Good The route guidance and ability to enter multiple waypoints in the Subaru Tribeca's navigation system are very useful features. Performance-wise, the car doesn't lack for power and proves very maneuverable. Critics of the previous model's looks will be happy at the styling change. The navigation system doesn't make it easy to find points-of-interest, and canceling route guidance could be easier.

    Fuel economy isn't very good. The Bottom Line The Subaru Tribeca is enjoyable to drive, and incorporates a few good tech features. However, it also has some real flaws, which could affect your long-term satisfaction with the car. In a nod toward conformity, Subaru gives its Subaru Tribeca a stylectomy, so now it looks like every other SUV or crossover, if you want to call it that. While we like the unique design of the old Tribeca, too many others thought it was ugly, and they will appreciate the change.

    Along the way, Subaru gave the Tribeca a more powerful engine, while the interior uses the same clean and curvy design we saw in the Subaru WRX. When the Tribeca was dropped off at our offices, we thought they gave us a Nissan by mistake.

    But no, the badge was definitely that of Subaru. The result is a perfectly fine-looking SUV, but one that you could easily lose in a parking lot among all the look-alikes. Our test Tribeca was the top-of-the-line Limited edition, with seven-passenger seating, rear-seat DVD entertainment, and navigation. The new engine is a powerful one for Subaru.

    Navigating the triangle below Canal Tribeca When we got the car, our errant thoughts turned toward where the name "Tribeca" came from.

    Looking beyond Subaru's marketing efforts, our Web research turned up that Tribeca is an abbreviation of "Triangle Below Canal," an area in Manhattan below Canal Street. With that information in mind, we decided to bring the Tribeca to its namesake.

    Subaru didn't give us the car long enough for a crosscountry drive, so we found our nearest Canal Street, in South San Francisco. As there was both a North and South Canal Street, the Tribeca's navigation system didn't find our destination when we just entered "Canal.

    Once we got there, we zoomed out the map a bit so we could outline a triangle to the south of Canal. One thing we like about the Tribeca's navigation system is the ease with which it let us set up complex routes. Starting from one end of Canal Street, we used the map to set our first waypoint at the other end of the street, defining the top of our triangle. Then we chose to add another waypoint using the map, and found a likely intersection for the bottom point of our triangle, down at Spruce and El Camino.

    After that, we made our current location the next waypoint, then chose a spot in the middle of the triangle to mark as our final destination.
