2018 Lincoln MKZ

What We Like

Plush ride; good fuel economy; an abundance of available tech/comfort features; a powerful new engine option; no extra charge for hybrid powertrain; excellent Revel audio option

What We Don't

Not an enthusiast-oriented performer; shares similar size and features with the Ford Fusion; some interior pieces look and feel rather common; Black Label option is too pricey

Overview

What's New in the 2018 Lincoln MKZ?

The 2018 Lincoln MKZ carries over largely unchanged. See the 2018 Lincoln MKZ models for sale near you

Which MKZ is the Best?

Because the MKZ is not on the same performance tier as the Cadillac CTS, BMW 3 Series or Mercedes-Benz C-Class, we wouldn't recommend it as a luxury-sport-sedan choice. If you don't need all-wheel drive, the hybrid model offers the best value. It brings all the opulence, amenities and soft ride of the standard MKZ but also returns excellent fuel economy that's far superior to its nonhybrid rivals.

Competition

2018 Lincoln MKZ vs the competition

2018 Lexus ES -- The ES may cost more than the MKZ, but it has a more luxurious interior and better resale value. Like the MKZ, the ES offers a hybrid version, but nothing compared to the MKZ's 400-hp V6.

2018 Cadillac CTS -- The CTS is a more engaged driver's car and has a better interior layout than the MKZ. That said, the MKZ offers a hybrid model and more rear-seat legroom.

2018 Genesis G80 -- Hyundai's new luxury division offers a rather well-equipped sedan to rival the MKZ for price and features, with a new Sport trim for improved performance but no hybrid model as of yet.

Used Audi A6 -- A 2012-2016 Audi A6 will cost about the same as a new MKZ, but offers more luxury and better performance, as well as more clout.
