Walkaround

Mazda Tribute has an aggressive look due to its forward-tilted stance, short overhangs and wide track. Thick bumpers, side cladding and wheel lip moldings smoothly integrated into the bodywork convey a sense of stability and refined ruggedness. Large multi-reflector headlamps with clear lenses and rear combination lamps with crystal lenses add a sporty dash.

A two-tone color scheme and minimal use of chrome create a clean appearance. The Tribute is aerodynamically superior to several of its competitors.

Mazda Tribute‘s external dimensions are comparable to those of the Jeep Liberty and Honda CR-V. It is longer than a RAV4 and nearly as wide as a Ford Explorer.

Interior Features

Tribute offers lots of front and rear legroom. It’s capable of seating five, but more comfortable with four, and no shoulder belt is provided for the rear-center position.

Tribute’s front bucket seats were improved last year (2002). They are comfortable and of higher quality than those found in many SUVs. The same is true of the Tribute’s rear bench seat.

But as in many small sport-utilities, the Tribute’s rear-side windows do not roll down all the way.

The second-row seat folds down, revealing a flat cargo floor and nearly 64 cubic feet of cargo space. The Tribute will even accommodate 4×8-foot sheets of plywood, if you don’t mind flipping open the rear hatch glass and letting the plywood stick out the back. The glass does not have to be closed when opening the rear hatch.

A 12-volt power outlet is located in the rear of the cargo compartment.

Radio controls are easy to use, and the heating, air conditioning and ventilation controls are simple. Cruise controls are mounted on the steering wheel. The instrument panel is straightforward and easy to read. New for 2003 is a two-tone color scheme for the instrument panel, in either gray or beige.

The center panel is finished in brushed aluminum in the DX and LX, and with faux carbon fiber in the ES.

Noise, vibration and harshness levels are low when underway. Visibility in all directions is very good. The shape of the Tribute’s hood combines with its seating position to allow the driver to clearly see both front corners of the vehicle, an advantage over the Honda CR-V.

Narrow A-pillars (front) and D-pillars (rear) minimize blind spots. The low bottom edge of the rear window maximizes visibility, and there’s no spare tire hanging off the liftgate to block the view.

Leather seating surfaces and a six-way power driver’s seat are standard on the ES model. Mazda is using different leather for 2003 and says that it’s softer than before.
