2009 Mercury Sable - A Full Sized Sedan with Excellent Safety Ratings

The Mercury Sable was introduced in 2008 as a replacement to the Montego and is a full size sedan. For 2009 the Sable adds an SOS-Post Crash Alert as well as stability control as standard on all trim levels. The Mercury Sable competes with other full-size sedans such as the Chevrolet Impala, Toyota Avalon, Chrysler 300 and Buick Lucerne. The Sable is available in base and Premier trim levels. The 2009 Mercury Sable makes for an excellent family car, as it has class-leading passenger and cargo room inside, when you count the trunk, the folding rear seats, and the legroom-heavy interior. The AWD models have a very capable computer-controlled all-wheel-drive system for all-weather driving.

Driving the Sable

The Sable is available in all-wheel drive. The 2009 Sable's ride is soft and compliant, with 10 percent more suspension travel built in, with some body roll in the fast corners, and a noticeable upward pitch of the front end on hard acceleration. Most of the time the 2008 Sable is a very pleasant car to be in. With traction control and optional AdvanceTrac stability control, the computers take over whenever there's a negative encounter with slippery conditions to keep the car going in its original and intended direction. Brakeing starts right at the top and gets progressively better, with electronic brake force distribution to keep the car stable, and full ABS whenever you need it. At freeway speeds the Sable is very, very quiet inside.

Mercury Sable Design

The Sable looks like a larger version of Mercury's midsize Milan. It measures 202.1 inches long, 74.5 inches wide and 61.5 inches tall. Alongside its competitors, the Sable is the widest and tallest. In the transition from Montego to Sable, the Sable got a completely new and quite different look. Although both cars have multi-pieced brushed-aluminum waterfall grilles, the hoods, grilles, headlamps, bumpers and intakes are completely different on the two cars, and there are differences across the rear panel.

Inside the '09 Sable

The inside of the 2009 Sable is roomy for a sedan and offers plenty of leg and head room in both the rear and front passenger spaces. Ford's Sync hands-free communication and entertainment system is also available. The optional VOGA package, available on the Premier version, adds Cashmere-colored custom leather seats and door inserts, chrome accent finishes and VOGA emblems and stitching throughout the vehicle.

Safety Features

Standard safety features for the '09 Sable include electronic stability control, traction control, four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes, LED brakelights, and six airbags. Also included is Ford's Safety Canopy, which can keep the curtain airbags inflated for several seconds during a rollover. A reverse sensing system is standard on Premier models. The now-standard SOS-Post Crash Alert system unlocks the doors and activates the horn and emergency flashers when airbags are deployed. The new Sable has been awarded a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and full five-star ratings from the federal government.

2009 Lineup

The 2009 Mercury Sable comes in standard and Sable Premier trim levels. All-wheel drive comes on the Sable AWD and Sable Premier AWD models. The Premier trim adds a reverse sensing system and an anti-theft alarm as well as many luxury features such as dual-zone climate control, 18" alloy wheels, SYNC communication system, SIRIUS satellite radio, a 6-disc CD changer and leather seating.
