Upscale styling both inside and out
Kelley Blue Book
Leather upholstery is complemented by Satin Metallic or Wales Mahogany wood trim
Lacks some definition and character
The 2008 Mercury Milan features distinct and handsome styling, although some find it a bit too conservative.
Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com generally approved of the exterior styling on the 2008 Mercury Milan. Kelley Blue Book finds the Milan has "a clean, modestly-adorned overall appearance" with "body lines that could be called 'chiseled.'" However, some reviewers, such as those at Mother Proof, feel that the Milan "lacks some definition and character," Cars.com notes that "signature design cues include a waterfall grille and the use of trim with a satin-aluminum finish" on the exterior of the Mercury Milan. Edmunds adds that this "sporty midsize family sedan with styling that doesn't get lost in the crowd" arrives in "two trim levels: base and Premier." There isn't much stylistic variation between the two versions of the Milan, but the "Milan Premier adds 17-inch alloy wheels," according to Edmunds.
Inside the respectably sculpted sheetmetal that adorns the 2008 Mercury Milan, Cars.com says occupants will find "leather upholstery that is complemented by Satin Metallic or Wales Mahogany wood trim." The styling contributes to the Mercury Milan's luxury ambiance, and ConsumerGuide feels that "Milans have a more upscale look when compared to Fusion and even the premium-midsize Lincoln MKZ." Edmunds writes that the "two-tone cabin" on the 2008 Milan is designed "to appeal to young professionals with an allegiance to Ikea-style furnishings."
Styling on the 2008 Mercury Milan is nothing groundbreaking, but it never seems bland or outdated.
