"Choosing between a 2006 Mercury Mariner Hybrid and a Ford Escape Hybrid comes down to styling. The Mercury gets a liberal coating of satin-finish trim inside and out, along with a two-tone interior color scheme and fake Sapele wood trim on the dashboard. If you like the more upscale appearance of the Mariner Hybrid, expect to pay a little more than the Ford, putting the Mercury into the low $30,000 range."
