Expert Quotes:

Seats aren't especially firm and provide modest support

Generous use of soft-touch surfaces and a choice of real metal or wood trim look especially nice

Cargo space is a pain

For those looking for a comfortable, high-quality, and slightly more unique sedan, the 2008 Mercury Milan might be just the car they're seeking.

The 2008 Mercury Milan seats five comfortably in a cabin that Edmunds says has "plenty of room for all passengers." Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com expressed appreciation for the space and seating comfort on the Mercury Milan, a sentiment that ConsumerGuide captures by saying that in the Milan, Mercury features "ample leg and head space for six-footers" in the front.

Not all reviewers enjoyed the interior seating, however, and Cars.com writes that the front seats "aren't especially firm and provide modest support." ConsumerGuide, in contrast, feels that the 2008 Mercury Milan offers "firm, supportive seats" for front occupants and "adult-adequate headroom with good foot space" in the back. The one drawback is in the rear of the Milan; Mercury's seating in back, Kelley Blue Book says, has a center position that’s “a somewhat hard perch with scant headroom." Occupant comfort is enhanced by the Mercury Milan's "generally hushed ride," according to ConsumerGuide.

Cargo space inside the 2008 Mercury Milan is also noteworthy, and Edmunds is surprised to find "an unexpected measure of utility," thanks to the Milan Mercury's "15.8-cubic-foot trunk, split-folding rear seat and fold-down front-passenger seat." Aside from the trunk, ConsumerGuide writes that "cabin storage is good," with Mother Proof adding that "the two-tiered center console is perfect for CDs and smaller items." However, when it comes to rear storage, Mother Proof disagrees with the reviewers at Edmunds, saying that rear "cargo space is a pain," thanks to the lack of "manual trunk release" and the fact that there is no "hand-hold" to use when closing the trunk on the Milan Mercury.

Build quality on the 2008 Milan certainly isn't one of the car's major drawbacks. Kelley Blue Book approves of "the use of satin aluminum finishes and high-quality materials" throughout the cabin, and ConsumerGuide loves the "soft-touch surfaces" and "real metal or wood trim" that is offered on the Mercury Milan.


The 2008 Mercury Milan is a comfortable, practical, and well-built sedan that lives up to the expectations of its price tag.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
