Summary

Vehicle Overview
The five-seat Mercury Mariner Hybrid, which shares its platform with the Ford Escape Hybrid and Mazda Tribute Hybrid, continues for 2010 with a few high-tech features aimed at enhancing safety and convenience. GM's discontinuation of the Saturn Vue Hybrid leaves the Mariner Hybrid with no direct competitor, apart from its Ford and Mazda stablemates. Like them, it has a non-hybrid counterpart that's covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.

New for 2010
New spotter mirrors help illuminate blind spots, and there's also a newly available self-parking feature and standard MyKey system for parents with teen drivers.

Exterior
The 2010 Mariner Hybrid has no major exterior changes. Hybrid badges, unique 16-inch wheels and a ventilation duct for the hybrid drivetrain in the driver's-side rear quarter window differentiate it from the regular Mariner, but apart from that the differences are minor.
  • 16-inch alloy wheels
  • Green-leaf hybrid badges on doors and tailgate
  • Redesigned mirrors have spotter frames to show blind spots
  • Rear window opens separately from hatch


Interior
Ford's Sync multimedia system is standard on all Mariner Hybrid models, and it now includes traffic and weather information. The optional navigation system with a 6.5-inch screen can also play DVDs. Hybrids equipped with navigation have a system monitor that displays power flow between the electric motor and gasoline engine, as well as charging status during braking and cruising. Whether or not you get the nav system, the tachometer has a green zone that the needle goes to when you're in electric mode. An MP3 jack is standard on all models.
  • Seats made of soy-based foam
  • Standard 110-volt power outlet
  • Standard cruise control
  • Standard steering-wheel audio controls
  • Optional backup camera


Under the Hood
A 153-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is standard. It's assisted by an electric motor that draws power off a high-voltage battery; the battery recharges itself when you hit the brakes. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional.

The newly available self-parking system handles all the steering required for parallel parking. The driver must still shift the transmission into gear as well as operate the gas and brake pedals. The driver can also override the system and steer the car if needed.
  • Electrically variable automatic transmission
  • Drive-by-wire electronic throttle control
  • New Pull-Drift Compensation attempts to counter crosswinds or road-surface changes that may cause highway drifting
  • Optional self-parking feature


Safety
An electronic stability system with Roll Stability Control is standard. Roll Stability Control is designed to help prevent rollover accidents. Ford's new MyKey system, which is standard, allows parents to limit top speed to 80 mph and limit maximum stereo volume for their teenage drivers.

Other standard safety features include:
  • Side-impact and side curtain airbags
  • Antilock brakes
