The 2010 Mercury Mariner and Mariner Hybrid are at the leading edge in features, though many of them are available only as pricey options. While Car and Driver contends there are "no meaningful differences between models," Edmunds notes the 2010 Mercury Mariner is a "compact SUV [that] is available in four trim levels: I4, V6, Premier I4 and Premier V6" and cites standard features on the base models that include "full power accessories, air-conditioning, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, a four-speaker CD stereo...and keyless entry." It goes on to attest that the Mercury Mariner Premier models add "rear parking sensors, ambient interior lighting, leather/Alcantara upholstery, a power drive seat...[and] Sync."

The SYNC system is probably the 2010 Mariner and Mariner Hybrid's most important accessory. Edmunds describes it as "Ford's exclusive...multimedia integration system," and it wins uniformly high praise in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com.

Edmunds goes on to say that "the alluring Sync system gives [the 2010 Mercury Mariner] a technological edge over its compact SUV rivals." SYNC lets drivers operate Bluetooth mobile phones in hands-free mode. It comes with real-time traffic, weather, and information like fuel prices via Sirius Travel Link, another option, integrated into the navigation system, all easily controlled by voice commands.

Other options for the base 2010 Mercury Mariner, according to Cars.com, include "dual-zone automatic climate control, heated seats, a moonroof, upgraded leather and a navigation system." For the Mercury Mariner Premier, Edmunds lists more options, such as "17-inch wheels, step bars, a moonroof, [and] an upgraded seven-speaker stereo system." ConsumerGuide notes that the Mercury Mariner is available with an Amenities package that groups a "rear-obstacle-detection system [and] dual-zone automatic climate controls," while the Sun and Sync package for the 2010 Mercury Mariner base adds a "power sunroof, iPod adapter, wireless cell phone link, [and] voice recognition."

The 2010 Mariner Hybrid comes with many of these options as standard along with the high-mileage hybrid-electric drivetrain, and that's reflected in a base price $6,500 higher than the base 2010 Mariner. It also includes unique hybrid "leaf" badges on the sides and rear of the vehicle, eco-friendly seat fabric made from post-industrial recycled materials, and a standard 110-volt power outlet inside the car.

Conclusion

While the 2010 Mercury Mariner and Mariner Hybrid can be equipped with a ton of features, they're not cheap.

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.
