2010 Mazda Tribute Overview.

The 2010 Mazda Tribute SUV and its twin the Tribute Hybrid are both low-volume crossover SUVs and Ford has been building them for Mazda right from 2001 from its now maturing but persistently updated Escape and Escape Hybrid platform. (The same platform has also been used for Mercury Mariner and Mariner Hybrid) Revamped for 2008 and fixed immeasurably enhanced engines and transmissions for 2009, the Tribute provides Mazda with an ancient-looking SUV that shares its showroom space with other contemporaries in much more funky and groovy designs. The Tribute Hybrid is the only hybrid SUV vehicle that Mazda can boast off and additionally has gas mileage that could give others an inferiority complex.

The most recent 2010 Mazda Tribute SUV has a bold, tough novel look from what it was a couple of years ago. Even the interiors have got a major facelift with high-quality features and functions and overall the SUV spells comfort. Although the 2010 Mazda Tribute SUV shares its basics with Ford Escape, this SUV has its own significant style on the inside and outside which includes the outstanding and cubed-off nose that structures the huge chrome Mazda section emblem with a brilliant boundary. The 2010 Mazda Tribute SUV is undoubtedly male when compared to previous models and this masculinity is carried to the interiors too.

In almost all mannerisms, the 2010 Mazda Tribute SUV emerges as a totally contemporary compact crossover SUV. Even though it is a duplicate of the Ford Escape and has almost all of its positives and negatives, the 2010 Mazda Tribute SUV has handsomeness to its favor. Right from the Exterior Styling which is completely masculine to the choice of a powerful four-cylinder engine or a V6 engine and other top-quality safety features, this SUV scores in more ways than one.  However, the 2010 Mazda Tribute SUV does have its share of failures too and these setbacks prevent the 2010 Mazda Tribute SUV from competing with other SUVs of its class.

 The first setback with the 2010 Mazda Tribute SUV is the old-fashioned interior and the lack of other essential features which is now regular with other contenders like the easily-foldable backseat which lounges and glides forward and astern and the telescopic steering wheel. Another unflattering feature is the brakes which although has discs in the front yet are ancient drums at the back, is simply not capable enough to bring the 2010 Mazda Tribute SUV to a grinding halt as other compact SUVs and last but not the least in the setback list is the lack of the functional “Sync” multimedia interface which provides effortless voice control of cell phones and transportable audio devices.  

 There are other superior choices within the same segment of SUVs, one can choose from the Chevrolet Equinox, Subaru Forester, Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue and Mazda’s Sporty CX-7. All of these SUVs have an extra command over the 2010 Mazda Tribute SUV when taking into account factors like functionality, refinement and braking performance and provides the same crash test scores and performance. However, if the 2010 Mazda Tribute SUV remains your SUV of choice, it is advised that you opt for the Sync-Equipped Ford Escape as an alternative to this one.
