The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Escalade Hybrid sacrifices no performance, capability, or luxury, yet it uses a fraction of the fuel. The 2009 Mercedes-Benz R-Class is unlike any station wagon, minivan, or SUV currently on the market, and with the new BlueTEC model, it can haul six in supreme comfort at 24 mpg.
