Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The 2010 Mercury Milan and Milan Hybrid are remarkably good mid-size sedans that should be better known than they are. Though mechanically identical to the Ford Fusion and Fusion Hybrid, the Milan and Milan Hybrid have a cleaner exterior and slightly more stylish interior finishes—along with the better dealership experience that Lincoln-Mercury dealerships might offer.

The 2010 Mercury Milan Hybrid is the range's clear fuel economy champion. It's rated at a stunning 41 mpg city, 36 mpg highway, for a combined EPA rating of 39 mpg-a much better rating, it's worth noting, than the 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid. Only available as a high-spec front-wheel-drive model, the hybrid-electric drivetrain pairs a specially modified version of the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an electronically continuously variable transmission (eCVT).

With few of the functional oddities of other hybrids, the Milan Hybrid can run in all-electric mode at speeds as high as 47 mph, and it drives "like a regular car." Though it is fully $10,000 more than a plain-Jane Milan with the four-cylinder and six-speed automatic.
