Well, I must say that this board is much much quieter than the C-Max Energi board I belong too. Anyway, I will say that my favorite feature on my 2016 Titanium Escape so far is the driver memory seat. OMG, it's so great as I like to ride higher up and being able to lower the seat to get in and out and then raise it to the perfect height again at the touch of a button is fabulous. I have had 2 other Escapes (2009 and 2011) and while those were my favorite body shapes, this one is the same general configuration and look as my Energi.
I looked at Rav4 hybrid as well and they couldn't meet the price I wanted to be at, and well, there is something to be said for being familiar with where everything is on the vehicle.
I do like Sync 3, but am still getting used to telling it what I want rather than scrolling as I did with my Energi.
That's all I wanted to say,
