Overview of 2011 Mercury Milan Hybrid By Eric Tallberg
Considered by many to be at the top of the hybrid technology heap, the 2011 Mercury Milan Hybrid, though pricey, delivers not only great mileage, but an eco-friendly feel. Touted by a number of reviewers as the most efficient hybrid on the market, this five-passenger midsize hybrid sedan remains the only Milan trim offering a standard 6-CD changer to go with its six speakers and standard satellite radio. Other standard amenities found on the Milan Hybrid include 17-inch alloy wheels, premium cloth upholstery, telescoping tilt-wheel steering, cruise control, air conditioning, SYNC/Bluetooth hands-free directions, communications, and audio, one-touch power windows, digital keypad power door locks, heated outside mirrors, power-adjustable driver’s seat, and leather and simulated alloy dash and steering wheels trim. Additionally, the Hybrid sports the handy SmartGauge display, which gives drivers a heads-up as to eco-friendly driving habits. As for options, this economical sedan offers a power moonroof, upgraded Sony premium audio components, and a rear-view camera with the available DVD navigation system.
Standard safety equipment for the 2011 Milan Hybrid includes four-wheel ABS, traction and stability control, front side-mounted airbags, front and rear head airbags, remote anti-theft alarm, OnStar safety communications and notifications, front fog/driving lights, a post-collision safety system, and the MyKey programmable speed and audio volume governor. Safety options are the blind-spot information system (BLIS) and reverse alert sensors.
The heart of the front-wheel-drive (FWD) 2011 Milan Hybrid is, obviously, its well-engineered hybrid drivetrain. A 106-hp electric motor supplements its 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder (I4) gasoline engine, while a standard electronically integrated continuously variable transmission (e-CVT) ensures a net of 191 hp and 136 lb-ft of torque. Regenerative braking helps the I4 recharge its traditional nickel-metal hydride battery, though stopping is a bit erratic and may take a bit of getting used to. Meanwhile, auto engine stop/start, deceleration fuel shutoff, and the I4’s variable valve timing, as well as the capability to accelerate up to 47 mph on electric power alone, combine to give the Milan Hybrid a laudable 41/36 mpg.
This overview covers the Hybrid trim only.
