Expert Quotes:

the high seating position contributes to fine outward visibility

Five stars, frontal crash; five stars, side driver impact; four stars, side rear impact

Good, frontal offset and side impact tests

Buyers of mid-size sedans consider safety as one of their primary purchase reasons.  The Mercury Milan satisfies those needs and with optional stability control for 2009 is on par with its competitive set.

In independent crash testing, the 2009 Mercury Milan performs very well. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the Milan Mercury five out of five stars for most of its tests, and four out of five for side rear impact collisions. Seconding these outstanding crash-test ratings is the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which gives the Mercury Milan its highest rating, Good, for both frontal offset and side impact tests.

Solid crash-test ratings are not the only thing consumers look for when it comes to occupant safety, and the 2009 Mercury Milan accordingly offers a variety of safety features. Cars.com lists the standard safety features as including "side-impact and side curtain airbags," along with standard "antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution." Kelley Blue Book adds that "an active perimeter alarm" alerts the driver to obstacles around the car during parking and reversing is optional on the Milan.

In terms of daily driving, ConsumerGuide remarks that "the high seating position contributes to fine outward visibility" on the Mercury Milan, an attribute that will certainly aid in merging and highway situations.

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.
