The 2010 Mercury Milan is a car that blurs the boundaries between a mid-cycle refresh and a ground-up design. Changes for 2010 include refreshed exterior and interior styling. Whereas the previous Milan's cabin felt distinctly dated, the new one compares favorably with rival layouts, featuring an attractive design and improved ergonomics. A drawback that's noted with the Milan is that the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder emits a rather unpleasant racket under hard acceleration.
Another problem confronting the 2010 Milan is the new electric power assist steering system and its lack of communicativeness. The Milan offers a competitive 175horsepower four-cylinder base engine and a juiced up 240 horsepower version of the familiar 3.0-liter V6. Fuel efficiency also wasn't up to snuff on last year's model, but this time the Milan boasts class-leading fuel economy in four-cylinder guise.
