2009 Mercury Milan vs. Its Competition

2009 Mercury Milan Premier

Like the Mercury Milan, the Nissan Altima comes with a manual transmission option in four-cylinder versions and offers great handling.  It may have a little more room than the Ford but doesn’t offer an all-wheel-drive option.

Sedan shoppers that want room and style should check out the new Honda Accord with its sharpened handling and a huge interior.

The Toyota Camry is the more conservative choice in this class but also comes with a Hybrid powertrain.

The Chrysler Sebring is also a competitor to the Milan; from a distance, the Sebring looks like a worthy rival—and its feature list is better than the Milan's—but its interior is disappointing, and up close, chintzy materials, coarse powertrains, and an unremarkable driving experience leave TheCarConnection.com little to recommend over the well-rounded Milan.
