2007 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
It drives great like a car and is practical. It gives me a lot of room to work with while not being a gas hog, like my previous SUV's. It is a pleasant surprise out on the open road and is pretty fun.
My favorite feature on the Escape is the navigation system. It controls are not enormous, while being easily used while driving. I can't leave out the very few trips I have to take to the local gas station also.
I would add a few for options for upgrades in the way of technology, though it has enough for me or the average person/family.
