Subaru‘s large off-roader, the Tribeca, is getting a makeover in Ireland, but not in the UK.

While the Irish version is getting a more attractive front grille, updated rear lights and a brand new 3.6-litre 258PS engine, mainland UK is getting nothing.

There is a possibility that we will see the facelift in 2009, but nothing has been decided for definite.

“It is just a decision we have taken,” said a spokesman for Subaru.
