Better than expected
By D. Wilson on


2007 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I've been driving this car for over four months now and it has outperformed my expectations. Gas mileage is at 29.6, and I drive all highway miles. It handles like a foreign car, is incredibly smooth, and looks sharp (appearance package). Acceleration leaves something to be desired, but I find myself driving in a safer, more fuel efficient manner when the ability to peel off the line is no longer an option. All in all this car has performed far better than I anticipated.

Best Features

Appearance package greatly improved the look. Tremendous handling and turn radius. Gas mileage is better than advertised.

Worst Features

If there is a way to improve acceleration from a complete stop in a hybrid (and I'm not even sure there is), that would be the only change to make this drive identical to that of a gasoline-powered vehicle.
