Mazda Tribute is among the sportiest of the small utilities. Sporty handling and brisk V6 performance place the Tribute among the best of the small sport-utility vehicles sold today. Mazda and Ford worked jointly on developing the Mazda Tribute and Ford Escape and together they outclass the other small utilities. The Mazda Tribute delivers an excellent value for people who want the image and versatility of a sport-utility coupled with refinement and better on-road handling than truck-based utilities. The Mazda Tribute ES, the top model, comes loaded with leather seating, a six-disc in-dash CD player and other luxury features.
