At the 2012 New York Auto Show Lincoln took the wraps off the production version of the new MKZ, a car first shown as a concept back in Detroit in January. Lincoln say this elegant simplicity is the new path they’ve taken for the design of their cars. The car does indeed looks good, especially around at the back. It’s just that front grille we can’t come to terms with.
The interior looks and feels luxurious and has a classic design. It is also very feature-rich with stuff like 10.1-inch LCD instrument cluster with latest version of SYNC with MyLincoln Touch, another 8-inch LCD, premium leather package, an 11-speaker audiophile entertainment system and cabin air filtration, plus heated front seats (with the driver’s featuring 10-way power controls), remote start capabilities and Active Noise Control.
Lincoln has also equipped the car with some facny technical features to make it good to drive. It comes with Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) adjustable suspension, electric power-assisted steering (EPAS), engine, transmission, Active Noise Control (ANC), traction control and stability control systems.
You can choose between three engines, including an entry-level 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost , a 3.7-liter V6, and a 2.0-liter four-cylinder hybrid powertrain capable of 41 city mpg, 36 highway mpg.
