With its eye-catching styling, it may be easy to overlook the fact that the Lincoln MKZ can be had with either a strong V6 engine or a fuel-thrifty hybrid powertrain.

The Camry is a perennial favorite for its reliability, but don’t forget that the latest model is stylish, spacious, and fun to drive especially in XSE trim.
