The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.2
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 Nissan Altima remains one of the sportier choices among mid-size sedans, though if interior space matters, it might not feel as roomy as rivals.
