Value Writeup

The midsize sedan segment is a crowded one, so it's fortunate the Mercury Milan shares much with Ford's Fusion, Mazda's 6, and Lincoln's MKZ. The underlying architecture--chassis, powerplants, transmissions, drivetrains--means the Milan is no slouch on the road. Additionally, the Milan offers the first six-speed automatic transmission in its class. As a result, the combination of performance, pricing, and interior appointments set it apart from cars like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Nissan Altima.


Pros

Well-priced; distinctive Mercury touch to a great shared platform; comfortable and spacious interior; good handling.


Model Highlights

Mercury's recent success with the Milan is due in no small part to the dynamic platform and engines it shares with other cars in the Ford portfolio. In 2007, the Milan won J.D. Power's award for Highest Ranked Midsize Car in Initial Quality.

The car is available as either the Milan or the more fully optioned Milan Premier, and within each designation, there are two powerplant choices and a wealth of available features. The base engine in either Milan or Milan Premier is a 160-horsepower 2.3L Duratec I4, with a five-speed manual as standard. A five-speed auto is optional. Step up to the V6 Milan or V6 Milan Premier and you get a 221-horsepower 3.0L Duratec V6 with a standard six-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is available only on V6-equipped cars.

Standard equipment across the line makes any Milan a smart choice. All cars feature five-passenger seating with a 60/40 folding rear seat, center and overhead consoles, an audio jack, multiple power points, power windows and locks, remote keyless entry, a reverse sensing system, a tire pressure monitor, LED taillights, and more. Four-cylinder Milans feature 16-inch steel wheels, while V6 Milans ride on 17-inch aluminum wheels.

Base Milans can be optioned with the SYNC voice-activated communication and entertainment system and premium six-disc CD stereo with MP3 capability, while these features come standard on Milan Premier models. Also standard on Premier models is an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather seats, electronic automatic temperature control, automatic headlights, fog lamps, heated power mirrors, and all-season V-rated tires. Heated seats are optional on Premier cars.

Navigation, Sirius satellite radio, ambient lighting, power moonroof, and a rear spoiler are available options across the model range.

Several appearance and entertainment packages are available for all Milans, including a Wales Mahogany Wood Appearance Package and two different moonroof/premium stereo/Sirius packages, which range from $795 to $895.

The Milan comes with standard anti-lock brakes, dual-stage front air bags, full side curtain air bags, and front seat-side air bags, as well as speed sensitive windshield wipers, and a perimeter anti-theft system.


Model News

Like its Ford Fusion sibling, the 2008 Mercury Milan gets a new voice-activated navigation system, keyless entry, and a back-up parking sensor. Features added later in the model year include ambient interior lighting and Mercury's SYNC system, which integrates wireless devices and music players with the car. Pricing across the model range has changed little.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
