On paper, the Subaru Tribeca and the Mazda CX-9 are evenly matched. Their pricing is also within shouting distance of each other. But they're different.

It would have been easy to conclude this by saying: "We pick the Tribeca for weekday city driving, while the CX-9 takes the prize as the daddy's ideal weekend car." That neatly sums up the pair's strengths.
