TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Ford Escape Hybrid remains a solid, competitive entry among compact family SUVs and crossovers. Its fuel efficiency is superb, and the optional mechanical all-wheel drive sets it apart from any other AWD hybrid crossover. With the carbon footprint of a small car and all the comforts and technologies of a luxury SUV, the 2008 Lexus RX 400h is a green family’s dream.
