Though still mechanically based on the Ford Fusion, there are substantially more visual and mechanical delineations between the Fusion and MKZ. Unlike before, you'd be hard-pressed to tell they're related. More importantly, though, the new Lincoln MKZ is a far more appealing luxury sedan that can legitimately be considered alongside established players. Discover the ins and outs on used Lincoln MKZs, available now in Carvana's inventory.
Distinctive StylingAfter undergoing a significant redesign a few years ago, the Lincoln MKZ stands out amongst other vehicles in the entry-level luxury sedan class with its distinctive styling. Indeed, few other cars in its segment look like the MKZ, as the sleek styling features and swooping roof line are just a few of the elements that make the MKZ pop.
Hybrid Model AvailableOverall, the Lincoln MKZ comes with three different engine options: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (base), a 3.7-liter V6 engine, and a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that's combined with an electric motor. The hybrid model is particularly alluring, as it returns an EPA-estimated 40 mpg combined (41 mpg city/39 mpg highway).
Impressive List Of Standard FeaturesThe MKZ doesn't hold back when it comes to its list of standard features. Keyless ignition and entry (with an outside keypad), heated eight-way power front seats with power lumbar, and auto-dimming rearview mirror are just a few of the items that come standard with this vehicle.
Electronics InterfaceThe Lincoln MKZ comes with MyLincoln Touch, which is standard and handles Bluetooth, audio, navigation, and other vehicle functions from an 8-inch touchscreen. And while the capabilities are impressive enough, the actual utilization of the touchscreen doesn't come without its drawbacks. Chiefly, the processing speed on the MyLincoln Touch is rather sluggish when compared to similar interfaces on rival vehicles.
Interior QualityA common complaint with the Lincoln MKZ is the fact that the interior materials don't really stack up to its entry-level luxury sedan billing. At a glance, the materials look somewhat refined and upscale, but upon closer review, it's revealed that many of the materials are simply plastic. Additionally, the MKZ has gear selector buttons in place of a steering wheel-mounted shifter, which feel thin and flimsy.
Interior SpaceWith a high center console, the front seating area in the MKZ has a tendency to feel a bit restricted and confining. Furthermore, the sweeping roof line encroaches on the available headroom for taller rear seat passengers.
