The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Mercury Mariner is an attractive and capable compact SUV, now with vastly improved performance. With the 2009 Nissan Rogue, the crossover market gets another right-sized entry that’s just a little tighter inside than the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4.
