If you're expecting the 2015 Lincoln MKZ to ride and drive like the company's discontinued Town Car, think again. This Lincoln can handle corners more athletically than you might imagine....
... But it's no sport sedan, and is outclassed by cars like the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4,
Cadillac ATS, or other similarly priced sedans. On the other hand, the Lincoln MKZ is larger than those cars, offering more interior space. The quiet interior is aided by a noise-canceling system, and the suspension is adept at absorbing bumps. The 4-cylinder engine is surprisingly good at motivating this heavy sedan, but the optional 3.7-liter V6 is still a better choice. The hybrid isn't particularly quick, but Lincoln's fuel economy claims are no joke, as it's easy to keep it in the 40 mpg range. The standard 6-speed automatic and the continuously variable automatic transmission on the hybrid both worked unobtrusively.
