2014 Lincoln MKZ 4dr Sedan AWD w/EcoBoost (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)

Review

I actually have the V6 AWD, but I cannot select it in the options list. Love the exterior design, I am just smitten by its sinister beauty, especially in SmokedQuartz. The V6 is rev-happy, albeit not as torquey as GM's; the suspension is tight, and the electronic steering is not numb, nor too heavy. In AWD form with Pirelli's summer rubber, the car feels glued to the road on sharp, fast turns. Acceleration is brisk enough, but remember, this is NOT meant to be a Mustang for Lincoln; rather, a luxurious performance cruiser, and it fits the bill nicely. Interior is plush, supportive, and it gets plenty of praises, especially the novel arch! Touch-controls are not bad at all, as some mags say.

Favorite Features

The Panoramic Sliding Roof is one of the best features. The button-transmission is actually pretty cool. The touch-controls are nowhere near as bad as magazines say, unless you have Parkinsons. The center-console arch is a beautiful design feature. Lastly, the sinister rear-end, and the aggressive front.

Suggested Improvements

The V6 engine needs more TORQUE! It is a solid motor, but it could use low-end torque to keep the engine revs from going too high even in suburban driving. Lastly, a more performance rumble from the pipes, without being too vulgar, or loud, or tacky. Just enough of a growl/grunt. Other than that, the car is simply brilliant.
