As it moves through the air it clings to the ground.

Mercury Cougar’s shape serves a very useful purpose: It controls the air passing over it to help keep the car pressed to the road — giving you greater control. Cougar XR-7’s inside is shaped to help you even more. Controls are within your natural reach. And the seatback actually changes shape to fit your back.

Meanwhile, the XR-7 accelerator connects you directly to a powerful 5.0-liter V-8 with sequential multi-port fuel injection. Yet thanks to Cougar’s shape, as it’s moving swiftly through the air, you have the comforting awareness that you’re staying on the ground. We stand firmly behind Cougar’s quality with a 6-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Restrictions and a deductible apply, so ask to see this limited warranty at your dealer. For more Cougar information, call toll-free 1-800-822-9292.

The shape you want to be in. Mercury.
