About Lincoln MKZ
The 2016 Lincoln MKZ sedan continues to gain momentum in the hotly contested midsize-luxury-sedan segment. To stand apart, Lincoln gives the 5-passenger MKZ a number of desirable configurations, including the option of AWD and a fuel-efficient hybrid model. Not intended as a tightly tuned sports sedan, the MKZ is free to fill a growing void in the luxury-car segment, one where a soft ride is increasingly hard to find. While its clearest competitor is the Lexus ES 350, the MKZ's toughest competition comes from the car from which it is based: the 2016 Ford Fusion. As the two cars often share a common showroom, the less costly and more stylish Fusion may cannibalize younger buyers Lincoln is desperately trying to win over.
