2012 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Hybrid is the way to go on this model.
The ride is very smooth and quiet.
Overall, the vehicle is quite refined.
I have about 7000 miles on this car and I am averaging 40.5 mpg.
I would probable due better, but 95% of my driving is highway.
The car has plenty of power for passing, or merging, and handles like a dream.
I have owned several Mercedes prior to this Lincoln and they did not drive nearly as nice as this.
I would give Mercedes a thumbs up on seat comfort, but that is it.
That is not to say the seats on the MKZ are not comfortable, they are, but Mercedes has slightly better side support.
Overall, the MKZ is a joy to drive and very reliable!
Slightly larger controls, better storage for sunglasses.
