The 2010 Mazda Tribute is great for the value and fuel economy, however it still falls short of its competitors like the Ford Escape. In fact, the 2010 Tribute shares a platform with the Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner, but they out-perform the Tribute. For 2010, the Tribute is mostly unchanged. Its new standard features include an ambient temperature gauge for all trims, as well as a garage door opener, rearview camera, and auto dimming rearview mirror.
The 2010 Tribute is available in four trims and also has a hybrid version that runs on a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine with an electric motor. The greatest thing the 2010 Tribute has going for it is its excellent fuel economy. The exterior continues to be bland and desperately in need of an update.
