Do they seriously want one to off-road with? I think it'd be fine for light duty trails, like fire roads and the like, but otherwise it basically has no articulation or long travel suspension that would make it a very good off-roader.

They might have better luck with something like a 4Runner, or a Cherokee.

If it is really going to be used for city driving, then a Tribeca would be great.

Yeah, but the Tribeca wasn't made for off-roading.... It's the first Subaru made for the city-life, hence the name and the absence of the roof racks....

Roof racks are an available option!
