2007 Mercury Milan Review

The 2007 Mercury Milan is a midsize sedan that shares much in common with the Ford Fusion and was based off the Mazda6 platform. It is Mercury's entry-level car and serves as Mercury's most affordable model. For 2007, more standard features have been added: side curtain and seat-mounted side-impact airbags, as well as all-wheel drive.  The Milan comes in two versions: a basic four-cylinder package and a loaded V6 Premier model.  The 2007 Mercury Milan drives well and is the product of some of Ford's best engineering. The Milan seats four comfortably, and has an inviting cabin. The sedan is versatile, with fold-down rear seats for extra space and utility. The new for 2007 all-wheel drive stabilizes handling, improves traction, and adds confidence in foul weather by sending power from the transmission to all four wheels instead of just the front or rear wheels.

Lineup for 2007

The 2007 Mercury Milan comes in four versions: a basic four-cylinder package, a Premier V6, a Milan V6 AWD, and a Milan Premier V6 AWD.  The Milan comes with a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine and a choice of five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission.   Standard features include ABS, side-impact and side curtain airbags, air conditioning, a premium audio system with AM/FM/CD/MP3 player, an analog clock, an overhead console with sunglasses holder, a covered flip-up storage bin on top of the dash, six-way power driver's seat with manual lumbar, 16-inch wheels, speed control, tilt and telescoping steering wheel with secondary controls, a perimeter anti-theft system, standard auxiliary audio input jack, and remote keyless entry.

Milan Premier upgrades with leather seating surfaces, automatic electronic climate control, 6CD changer with MP3 and six speakers, leather-wrapped steering wheel with secondary audio, speed and climate controls, automatic headlights, fog lights, puddle lamps, and an auto dimming interior rearview mirror with compass.

Milan Power Options

The base Milan comes with a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine and a choice of five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. The Milan Premier comes with a 221-horsepower 3.0-liter V6, a six-speed automatic, anti-lock brakes, and 17-inch machined aluminum wheels. Four-cylinder and V6 engines are available. The V6 six-speed automatic transmission, gives both better acceleration and better fuel economy than a five-speed automatic. Both engines run on regular-grade gasoline. Traction control is now standard on V-6 models; however, the engine feels limited and a bit underpowered, and doesn't sound like a powerful engine when prodded. A full-throttle maneuver will also get the front end to pitch.

Driving a Mercury Milan

The V-6-powered Milan delivers ample acceleration for passing and merging. The automatic transmission is decent, but it doesn't change gears consistently every time. The steering has a fairly hefty feel and effort at the wheel and high-speed handling is good. The ride handles bumps well; there is not too much body roll, and the Milan offers a quiet, smooth operation.

Cabin Features

The quality of design and materials for a car in this price class was generally quite high; it is satisfying to touch and look at. Considering its cost, the 2007 Mercury Milan has impressive cabin materials. Leather upholstery is complemented by Satin Metallic or Wales Mahogany wood trim. Two-tone leather seats with contrast stitching are optional. The deeply bucketed front seats are cozy. The rear seat folds down in a 60/40 split, and is enabled by an easy-pull latch on each side. The interior, which seats four, has plenty of headroom and legroom even in the rear. The rear door panels are scooped out for more elbow room. The rear armrest includes two cupholders, for a total of six. With the seat down, you get the 15.8 cubic feet in the trunk, plus another 46 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front seats. A fold-down front passenger seat is standard on all 2007 Milan models, adding to the vehicle's versatility. For organizational storage, the Milan offers a lot. There are two cubbies in the console, one at the top center of the dash with a latching lid, two more in each front door pocket, and one in the bottom center of the dashboard. The Milan has a six-way power driver's seat, and an audio input jack for portable MP3 players and other devices have become standard for 2007.

Mercury Milan Design

The Milan is a sedan that has a crisp and modern look. For 2007, the Milan adds a new rear spoiler option and Silver Birch, Alloy Clearcoat and Dark Amethyst exterior colors. The traditional Mercury waterfall grille, as opposed to the Ford Fusion three-bar grille, is surrounded by more conventional combination headlamp units. In the rear, the high decklid is framed by a pair of bright LED taillamps that are large and nicely integrated. The side view is pumped up several notches on the Premier version with its 14-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels and relatively fat 225/50R17 tires.


Side-impact and side curtain airbags are standard, as are antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution. Safety features have been upgraded for 2007; The anti-lock brake system comes standard, along with side-impact airbags for torso protection for the driver and front passenger, side curtain airbags for head protection for front and rear passengers, and an anti-theft perimeter alarm system. Traction control is also standard on all V6 Milan models in 2007.

Though the 2007 Milan is Mercury's entry level vehicle, it has the feel of a much more up-class sedan. The Milan's cabin is spacious and the materials are nice. The Mercury Milan works well for a family sedan and would be an excellent value for anyone.  Although the Milan is on a Ford platform and is very similar to the Ford Fusion, it does have more standard equipment than the Ford version. The 2007 Milan gets a fuel economy range of 31 mpg Hwy, and 23 mpg City.
