If you're seeking a big, comfortable, traditional-looking sedan that can seat five, gets decent fuel economy and starts in the $40,000 range, the MKS deserves a spot on your shopping list.
If driving thrills and handling dynamics are priorities, you'll probably want to look at competitors such as the BMW 5 Series, Acura TL, Audi A6, Infiniti M37 or Cadillac CTS. And despite its heritage

The sedan's 6-speed automatic transmission is a smooth shifter and outside noise is hushed thanks to an emphasis on sound-deadening in the cabin.

It has very good pick up. The AWD Ecoboost is the way to go. Good gas mileage too."

"Fully optioned MKS is best bargain on the road. Technology allows driver to customize car's personality to match any driver. "Comfort" mode is the most pleasurable ride available.

Ideal car for American luxury car driver."
