2008 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
The Escape is a blast to drive. It feels nimble, solid, and sure, and the acceleration is remarkably good. After 8500 miles, we're averaging 32 mpg on the highway and between 32 mpg (my wife with a heavy foot) and 38 mpg (me with an exceptionally light foot) in town.
The instantaneous and average mpg display. (Put one on every car. As a nation, we would save millions of gallons of gas per year.) Satellite radio. Separate driver and passenger temperature controls. Side curtain airbags for all passengers. Sheer drivability and convenience.
