2014 Subaru Tribeca vs. 2014 Toyota 4Runner Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Subaru Tribeca offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Toyota 4Runner. The Subaru Tribeca offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota 4Runner, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Toyota 4Runner, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru Tribeca, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Subaru Tribeca will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota 4Runner. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Subaru Tribeca will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota 4Runner.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru Tribeca is much slimmer than the Toyota 4Runner, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Subaru Tribeca takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota 4Runner.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Subaru Tribeca doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota 4Runner.

Handling
The Subaru Tribeca has the same turning radius as the Toyota 4Runner, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota 4Runner is clearly the choice over the Subaru Tribeca for pulling heavy loads. The Subaru Tribeca has a little less horsepower than the Toyota 4Runner.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Subaru Tribeca and the Toyota 4Runner. The Subaru Tribeca has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota 4Runner.

Warranty
The Subaru Tribeca comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota 4Runner.
