2010 Mercury Milan vs. Its Competition

2010 Mercury Milan 4-door Sedan Premier FWD Angular Front Exterior View
John Voelcker John Voelcker Senior Editor

The two default choices in the mid-size sedan market are the Honda Accord, which is stylish and enormous inside, and the Toyota Camry, bland and conservative but-like the Milan-offered with a Hybrid model.

The Chevrolet Malibu may have the nicest interior of the group, and it's a notably better car than past iterations.

The Nissan Altima offers great handling and a manual gearbox with the four-cylinder engine, like the Milan, but not all-wheel drive-and the same comment applies to the sporty Mazda Mazda6.

While the Chrysler Sebring ladles on the features, its styling has not been well received and the interior is disappointing, with chintzy materials.

Its coarse powertrains and mundane driving experience give TheCarConnection.com little reason to recommend it over the well-rounded Milan.

Quick Specs
8.8
The 2010 Mercury Milan and Milan Hybrid are stylish and comfortable sedans with great handling, a stylish interior, and good to excellent fuel economy.
8.6
The 2010 Chevrolet Malibu remains one of the strongest players in the mid-size sedan segments, though its rivals are certainly worth a look.
6.8
An impressive feature set and a reasonable price can’t keep the 2010 Chrysler Sebring Convertible and sedan from mediocrity.
8.8
Honda hasn’t changed much about the Accord, and that’s a good thing. In base four-cylinder form, the 2010 Honda Accord feels sophisticated beyond its price range, and even as a $30,000 coupe or sedan, the top V-6 models offer compelling refinement, performance, and luxury.
8.6
The 2010 Mazda Mazda6 is the choice for driving enthusiasts who are also compelled to make a practical, family-friendly selection.
8.2
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.
