Exactly the same in my Tribeca. It's nicely placed so you don't see the light itself, but gives a nice soft red glow around the center console shifter area. It's not really needed, since everything in the center stack and console has their own backlights, and the cupholders have their blue LEDs, but it's a nice touch.
Subaru was trying to move upscale with the Tribeca, and it shows.
