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