Mercury Milan/ Mercury Milan Hybrid

<a href="http://topics.latimes.com/autos/mercury"><b> Mercury Milan/ Milan Hybrid</b></a><br>
<br>
<b>Overview:</b> A Ford Fusion is a smarter suit, but the Mercury Milan has its own little makeover for the 2010 model year, giving it a fresher face and rump, plus improved aerodynamics. Engine choices are a 175-hp 2.5-liter four or a 240-hp 3.0-liter V6. There’s also the Milan Hybrid. Again, much like the Fusion counterpart, this vehicle runs on a 155-hp 2.4-liter engine, an electric motor and a continuously variable transmission (CVT). It can get up to 47 mph on electric power alone before the four-banger kicks in, making it especially frugal in town. Available from spring 2009.<br>
<br>
<b>Our take:</b> There’s probably room in the automotive world for a more upscale Fusion -- especially if it’s a hybrid.<br>

Our take: There’s probably room in the automotive world for a more upscale Fusion -- especially if it’s a hybrid.
