2010 Mercury Mariner Overview.


Even though the 2010 Mercury Mariner SUV has some sought-after characteristics, especially in the technical area, one feels that there are other choices which could be better than the 2010 Mercury Mariner. With an extraordinary list of high-tech treats, sufficient performance and fuel efficiency and remarkable crash test scores, the 2010 Mercury Mariner SUV fails to live up to the expectations of a SUV for the exorbitant price tag it comes with. On the downslide the non-reclining seat which is cumbersome to fold, the sad braking performance and the unremarkable driving experience adds more to the list of woes with the 2010 Mercury Mariner.

What is novel with the 2010 Mercury Mariner SUV?

The 2010 Mercury Mariner SUV has removed the optional in-dash CD changer and has added a regular satellite radio in its place. The Sync-equipped version without navigation is currently offering a communications system which is inclusive of the 911 assistance, turn-by-turn directions and traffic reports. Additionally, the recently introduced MyKey system is a boon for many parents to curb the speed and audio dimensions for their teenage drivers. There is a back-up camera also available currently and the ingenious Auto Park feature which helps in steering the car at the time of parallel parking.

The 2010 Mercury Mariner SUV Complete Review:

We all know that the debut of the Mercury Mariner SUV happened four years back yet it is fundamentally an insignia of the Ford Escape which was launched at the beginning of the Millennium. From then on both of the models have been receiving considerable changes in the interiors, styling, suspension and powertrains. All of these enhancements have maintained the freshness of the Mariner but it still remains in a state of quandary as to whether the 2010 Mercury Mariner SUV would definitely be able to compete alongside its adversaries.

On a more positive note, there have been recent enhancements like the well-equipped engines which have placed it in the race against competitors. The 240-Horsepower V-6 engines has been defeated by other segmented personalities like Toyota’s 268-HP RAV4 and Chevrolet’s 264-HP Equinox however; the V-6 with the Mariner is strong enough to move the SUV with a respectable vitality. The base 171-HP-Four-Cylinder works okay for this class and Fuel efficiency and economy is quite noteworthy too and the four-wheel drive-four-cylinder version provides a decent 20mpg in city drives and 28mpg on highways.

The Unique Selling Point for the 2010 Mercury Mariner SUV is the Sync system and with the addition of the 911 assistance and GPS functionality running on your Bluetooth phone makes an impression. The other set of positive aspects includes an Auto Park System that works best for parallel parking, the MyKey for parents to set electronic limitations for audio volume and speed, remarkable crash test scores and the accessibility of a hybrid model.

However; there are downslides with the 2010 Mercury Mariner SUV too. Though the SUV boasts of many positive aspects, it does have some inferior features like braking performance and the rear seat, too cumbersome to fold and doesn’t recline or lounge which reduces the comfort and functionality of the 2010 Mercury Mariner. Overall this SUV has many strengths and equal amounts of weaknesses too, yet it all depends on how much you favor the 2010 Mercury Mariner SUV and how it works for you.

2010 Mercury Mariner Pros:

  • Sufficient Cargo Space for an SUV of its class.
  • Pioneering Safety Features like the “MyKey”

2010 Mercury Mariner Cons:

  • - Longer-braking distances.
  • - Hard-to-fold/ Cumbersome Rear Seat.
  • - Too pricey for its class.
