TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Mercury Milan and Milan Hybrid are stylish and comfortable sedans with great handling, a stylish interior, and good to excellent fuel economy. The 2010 Chevrolet Malibu remains one of the strongest players in the mid-size sedan segments, though its rivals are certainly worth a look.
