Lincoln re-enters the luxury class arena with this newest constituent, the MKZ. A sleek-looking vehicle, this entry-level luxury sedan features a winged grille that’s split, seductive and creased metal sheeting and bright LED taillights. Available in two trims (MKZ and MKZ Hybrid), the base model has plenty to offer. 18” wheels are standard on both trims, as are LED headlights (adaptive) and taillights, adaptive suspension, keyless ignition and entry, two-zone automatic climate control, auto-dim mirrors and power accessories. You’ll also get a voice command system (Sync) as well as the popular 8” MyLincoln Touch infotainment system. Several upgradable packages exist that offer add-ons like ambient lights, HD radio, traffic alerts and collision control, and a power trunk lid, not to mention an upgraded 14-speaker sound system. Base you will get a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque (25 combined mpg). You can beef that up with an upgraded 3.7-liter V6 engine that delivers an impressive 300 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque (21 combined mpg). Opt for the Hybrid, and you will get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and electric motor that makes 188 horsepower (45 mpg). The standard four-year/50,000 mile warranty is a good start, and can be upgraded for longer protection and added peace of mind.
