Mid-size sedans tend to be growing in appeal with the desire to move into more fuel efficient options while also having plenty of space for a family. The Mercury Milan Sedan is among one of the better alternatives in the class. It offers the perfect combination of style, power and fuel economy to make the average consumer happy. The best part is that it is a generally affordable choice for the family on a budget. Though it has its own set of drawbacks, many will find that most cars in this class have the same issues and problems.
The overall design of the Mercury Milan Sedan is impressive from the beginning. Like many of the other mid-range sedans on the market, the Milan has received significant upgrades as the desire for these vehicles is on the rise. The exterior is considered stylish and is very close to the look of the closely related Ford Fusion. There are a number of appearance related features that either come standard or can be added to give it an even more impressive look. It is true that driving a Milan will not cause heads to turn, but those that like this class of cars will still find it attractive.
Those who step inside the Mercury Milan Sedan will be quite impressed with the layout and design. The materials used throughout the cabin are nice quality and enhance the overall appearance that can be found there. Space is not an issue even with the limited size of the vehicle. It can easily take on four adults and makes an excellent choice for families with small children. The controls are easy to use and it boasts the Sync system that has become so well known for convenience and handiness in these vehicles. Even cargo space is quite generous for a car of this size. Overall the inside of the Milan is second only to the fuel economy in being a prime reason for selecting the vehicle.
The Mercury Milan Sedan will not win any races, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't perform well. In fact, drivers will enjoy the experience even if it does not boast the power and speed that come with some other vehicles. It is easy to handle on the roads and riding along in the Milan is a generally comfortable experience. Drivers will probably not love the power steering, but no one will leave the vehicle feeling as though it didn't satisfy on the road.
When it comes to what lies under the hood there are two different options that are based on trim. The standard engine is quite small as only a 2.5 liter 175 horsepower four cylinder. With a six speed manual as standard and a six speed automatic optional the vehicle can only have front wheel drive. This combination gets about 22 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The premier trim moves up to a 3.0 liter 240 horsepower V6. The automatic is standard as is front wheel drive, but buyers can opt for all wheel drive. The premier still isn't that fast with this trim taking over seven seconds to reach sixty. The fuel economy is still comparable with 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
