The 2008 Mazda Tribute HEV Touring has none of the cabin tech we like to see--you will have to get the Grand Touring version for those options. But it is a very practical car, with good interior space and low mileage.
In another feat of brand engineering for the automotive industry, the 2008 Mazda Tribute HEV shares body and engine with the 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid and the 2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid. HEV stands for hybrid electric vehicle.
The engine in the Tribute HEV is exactly the same as that found in the Ford Escape Hybrid, a 2.3-liter four-cylinder Atkinson cycle engine assisted by a hybrid system that lets the car operate as an electric vehicle for short distances.
