Vehicle2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
ReviewWhen reading reviews, make sure the person has actually driven the car, and the competition. I test drove this car as well as the Lexus ES 300h, Mercedes C class 300 4 matic, Mercedes E class 350, Audi a6, and the BMW 3 series. Most of the professional reviews seem to be written by [non-permissible content removed].
After test driving them all by far the best overall was the Lincoln MKZ (hybrid). It was as comfortable as the Lexus ES350, It has more tech then any in its class or above it (deserves a 5 in that category), The Merc C class looks like a childs toy and feels like one comparitively. And it has the highest gov safety rating, stops sooner then EVERY CAR in its class, also should be 5.
Best FeaturesHuge glass roof Incredible gas milage! you literally have to drive with supreme effort and purpose to get 45 MPG, you will get 38-40 if you drive like a normal human. Awsome inner design Is more removed from Ford then Lexus is from Toyota and Audi from VW, people are silly things. Safest Car on the road, stops sooner, most safety tech, even has optional safety equipment not available to any other car in any class. TOP 3 most reliable autos on the planet by manufacturer. Audi? please... Quite, quite, quite ride, and soft feel on the road. unique design, does not look like just another (yawn) bmw, or mercedes C class, and isnt a boat like the merc E class (nor costs a repressive amount)
Worst FeaturesIm used to driving cars like the 2000 Impala, police style, and the trunk was humungous!!! I miss it, the MKZ trunk requires more thought when I stuff my bike, and triathalon equipment in it. Although the voice command was better then all others I test drove, I think the technology is way behind cell phones, how hard would it to be on the level of Seri? or any voice recognition on Andriod? way way way behind the tech curve, but this is for all cars on the market now.
