Subaru Tribeca: Ugly?

I am on the fence. I can't make up my mind if the Subaru Tribeca is ugly, or merely uninteresting. When I look at pictures on the web, I think 'UGLY!". I saw one in person the other day, and it was merely bland.

It looks a little like a BMW X5 and some kind of Alpha Romeo had a child.

It's ugly, but no worse that the Nissan Murano or anything from Renault.

Bland is GM, this is ugly with a capitla U.

Of course this comes from a man who loved his Pinto, so consider the source

It's no more or less ugly than a Lexus RX330. Ignoring the nose, it's almost innofensively bland and from side on it's forgettable.

The rear is sort of Infiniti-like. OK, but quirky.

The front is . . . ugly. No other word captures the emotion. The "Alfa" look is unmistakable, which isn't an image you'd think they would want.

The good news is that from inside it's a terrific vehicle.

However, it's fully-optioned price is way up there with the "luxo" brands. It will be interesting to see if buyers who can afford to buy a high-end SUV will choose Subaru.

Personally, I think they've screwed up. Nissan/Infiniti are out there with high-priced quirky-styled SUVs for those who want them.
