How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

Mazda sells very few of its Ford-built Tribute sport-utility vehicles every year—and even fewer Tribute Hybrids. They give Mazda a traditional-looking SUV that stands out in a showroom filled with increasingly zoomy designs; but apparently, they don't fit in very well with Mazda buyers. The Tribute Hybrid is Mazda's sole hybrid vehicle, however, and gets gas mileage that would do a compact hatchback proud.

Though it's based on the Ford Escape, the Tribute carries its own distinctive styling inside and out. The 2010 Tribute Hybrid model is fitted with a specially tuned version of the 2.5-liter four, mated to an electronically continuously variable transmission (eCVT) containing two electric motors that both power the car and recharge the battery pack, which sits by the rear axle.

The Tribute Hybrid is rated at 34 city, 31 highway in front-wheel-drive form, though that falls to 30 city, 27 highway when four-wheel drive is specified. All Tribute models, including the hybrid, can be specified with either front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.
