The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Mercury Mariner is an attractive and capable compact SUV, now with vastly improved performance. As a smaller crossover, the Journey's a good alternative to the Saturn Vue and Subaru Forester, maybe even to a Dodge Grand Caravan--just don't pile on the expensive options.
