The Subaru B9 Tribeca gets a facelift for the 2008 model year, replacing the airplane-inspired front end styling with something a bit more palatable and "SUV-like," according to Subaru. We're not sure about SUV-like, but the look is definitely less polarizing.

Under the hood, a new 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine produces 256 horsepower and 247 lb.-ft. of torque. It's backed by a five-speed automatic transmission. Being a Subaru, of course the engine is horizontally opposed, and the power is delivered to all four wheels.

Inside, the 2008 Tribueca sees few changes, limited mostly to a new--and optional--third row, allowing for seven-passenger seating. Our test Tribeca was not equipped with that option.

Prices start at $30,640 with destination charges for a basic five-passenger version. Prices for the seven-passenger versions start at $31,640. Our test machine, which featured the optional navigation system, listed for $35,640.
