If you're looking for a mid-size, middle-class, medium-priced sedan with trappings of luxury, then the 2012 Lincoln MKZ has your number. To its credit, the Lincoln MKZ offers a competent drivetrain wi
If you believe the design and construction of a luxury car begins with its platform, the Ford Fusion-based 2012 Lincoln MKZ may not be for you.
Despite the competence of the 2012 Lincoln MKZ sedan's Ford-Fusion underpinnings, it will likely not be confused with luxury cars that were engineered to that calling from the beginning. We like the V6 powertrain and its performance, and the 2012 MKZ certainly drives with competence and predictability, but other mid-size luxury entrants offer superior driving experiences.

"Was shopping for more than a year for a hybrid, tried them all and eventually got my MKZ 2013 hybrid. Even though MKZ is criticized for being pricey, the hybrid version is still the best deal among its class as the hybrid doesn't have the price premium vs other brands. It stands out among other options (ES, 3 series, A4, E series) due to its incredible 46 mpg and design. I record regularly 43 mpg on mine, and once it shown 47mpg. Something as a recommendation for Lincoln - they did a mistake on their website by not mentioning the folding back seats with opening for the skies. The actual cargo capacity of MKZ is in fact much larger with back seats folded. This feature was a deal breaker for me while choosing between ES hybrid and MKZ in the favor of the latter."

"The MKZ has been excellent. With AWD I have been able to get through the snow without issue. The traction has been great. A daily driver city/highway combination has averaged 22+ MPG. Quiet ride and very comfortable on long trips. Would consider this car again when time to trade."
