2010 Mercury Mariner

2010 Mercury Mariner Review

(3 Stars)  A softer-looking compact SUV

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Mercury Mariner is the mechanical twin of Ford's Escape and the Mazda Tribute. These small SUV's make the most of the compromises made during their design. They afford the high seating position that many people crave. They offer a commanding view of the road ahead and can be filled with children or groceries, even in the winter months, when in climate weather would slow down most cars. The mariner has its share of modern amenities and technological features, although it's overall design is starting to show its age compared with class leaders such as those from Honda, Toyota, and Hyundai.

The Mariner is offered with either a 171 HP four cylinder or a 240 HP 3.0 liter V-6. Both of which are mated to a six speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive comes as an option for both engines.

The standard feature list on the mariners is fairly extensive. They come with air conditioning, all power controls, keyless entry, and tinted window glass. Options include a sunroof, navigation, heated front seats, and automated self-parking feature, and an upgraded audio system.
