Safety

The 2008 Mercury Sable is one of the safest vehicles reviewed at TheCarConnection.com.

Automotive.com reports that the new Mercury Sable "has been awarded a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and full five-star ratings from the federal government"; in addition, standard "safety features are complete and include front, side and curtain airbags, ABS, and traction control."

The 2008 Mercury Sable provides tremendous occupant protection for the price.

Cars.com adds that the Sable's "six standard airbags include side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags for both rows; the latter devices include Ford's Safety Canopy, which can keep them inflated for several seconds during a rollover."

ConsumerGuide reports that "higher seating [in the Mercury Sable] than in most cars combines with a low dashtop and large windows for a take-charge driving feel and fine outward vision." The Auto Channel points out that Mercury Sable perimeter lighting "adds convenience and safety at night."

Motor Trend sums it up the best: "those looking for a safe, solid and slightly more upscale version of the Ford Taurus need look no further" than the 2008 Mercury Sable.
