I had a 2011 Prius.
That da** car had the absolutely worst seats you could put in a car.
I saw this car on the Richmond BMW lot, pulled in, took it for a test drive and traded on the spot, which I have never done before.
It is far superior to the Prius except in the gas mileage.
The shifting is much smoother, it is a lot quieter, and the leather seats are like heaven. I could drive this all day and not get tired.
I average about 38 mpg, and I have a lead foot.
I have never owned an America built car.
Got the car fully loaded except for DVD player who needs it, had remote start added by Mercury dealer who did not install the antenna so drove it a years till I had it serviced at a Ford Dealer nearer my home who fixed problem beware WestPoint Lincoln/Mercury dealership in Houston, TX, the car is great the dealership needs to be looked at by Ford or HPD bunko squad. I will not go near the place again for anything!
One professional auto reviewer had it right. This is the first hybrid to drive like a regular car. It is also clearly superior to the Ford Fusion Hybrid, Camry Hyrbid, Lexus HS250, Prius, and Altima Hybrid if you compare carefully. I really wanted to like the Lexus, but it was noisy and didn't drive as well as the Milan. The only advantage of the Lexus was the interior leather IMHO. I have a 2004 Mercedes E320 and I replaced a 1998 Infiniti Q45 with the Milan Hybrid. I've had the Milan for about 3 weeks now, and I am pretty satisfied. Averaging over 36 MPG with the A/C running, but have gotten over 46 going to work. As expected, mileage is very dependent on the terrain.
This car is a no-compromise hybrid. We owned a Ford Fusion 6-cylinder SEL before this one, loved it, but this is even better. The hybrid powertrain is awesome -- imperceptible if you don't want to think about it (though you'll notice going 600 miles on a tank!) but the Eco-Guide display helps you hypermile if you want> I got 99.9 mpg on one trip! (Okay, it was a short downhill trip, but I've also had longer trip in the high 40s and 50s. Very well-appointed, classy car. Some friends with a BMW were drooling over it. Plan to keep this one for a good long time. I hear the batteries last more or less forever.
After several years with Saturns (which had great mileage), the demise of Saturn sent me looking for a more luxurious car. The Milan hybrid is by far the nicest car I have ever been in. Performance is amazing - acceleration in the 25-40 range is very surprising. Freeway mileage is about 36 but in town, I can get 42 to 58 if I watch the EV indicator. The dash reminds me when the electric motor is running and I tend to take advantage of that when I can. I love giving a demo in silent electric mode, showing the power flow on the screen and of course all the Sync features. Passengers can't tell when the gas engine kicks in. I have nitrogen in the tires which may kick in an extra 2-3 MPG.
