As the only SUV on the green rental list, the Escape Hybrid is just about the most functional of the bunchwhich, on vacation, can come in pretty handy. The mileage cited above is only for the front wheel drive version. The 4WD version is harder to come by as a rental and returns 29 mpg combined, which is still impressive for a 4WD vehicle.
In any case, if your vacation calls for a little off-road action or extra storage space, then the Escape Hybrid is a good call.
