Lincoln MKZ Overview

The upscale MKZ is the most appealing and well-executed Lincoln in memory. Based on the Ford Fusion, it has a luxurious, quiet interior and its ride and handling rival some high-end European sports sedans. Powertrains include a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder and a 3.7-liter V6, both matched with a six-speed automatic. There's also a hybrid, which returned an impressive 34 mpg overall in our tests. The push-button gear selector and touch-sensitive controls for climate and audio functions are frustrating to use. Unfortunately, the modern styling compromises cabin access and rear-seat room. Reliability has been average for all versions.
