Edmunds' Expert Review

The 2015 Lincoln MKZ offers modern features and distinctive style, but it's a hard sell compared with more refined entry-level luxury sedan competitors.

vehicle overview

Lincoln is certainly no newcomer to the luxury automobile market, and neither is the Lincoln MKZ. In fact, the MKZ has been around since 2007. But it's the most recent redesign two years ago that has led us to the current car, the 2015 MKZ.

Previous versions of the MKZ looked a bit too much like their Ford Fusion siblings, but this model has a truly original and modern look on the outside. The sleek styling, along with the small touches like the LED lighting and the swooping roof line, make for a truly attractive car. Also worth noting are the various engine choices. You can have the standard turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, a more powerful V6 or even the fuel-efficient MKZ Hybrid, which is the same price as the base turbocharged engine.

Beyond engine choices, the MKZ also boasts a luxurious ride quality. It's quiet and comfortable thanks to a standard adaptive suspension and active noise cancellation in the cabin. Simultaneously, the MKZ feels taut and composed when you're driving it on a curvy back road. Lincoln packs in the features, too, as even base models come with luxury-oriented items such as leather upholstery, heated seats and a sharp-looking touchscreen interface.

It's in the details, though, where the MKZ becomes less impressive. The center console has been stripped of knobs, which helps things look a bit futuristic, but the result is a disappointing lack of tactile experience. When you eventually touch the surfaces that surround you in the cabin, you realize they look much better than they feel. We do like the idea of the MyLincoln Touch interface -- it offers some very useful customization and voice-control functionality -- but the reality is that it's still slow to respond at times and isn't as intuitive to use as those found on rival sedans.

So while the 2015 Lincoln MKZ is nice enough, it takes a bit more than just nice to win the day. The Lexus ES 350 and the ES 300h hybrid are the MKZ's closest competitors and they generally have an edge thanks to their well-built interiors and plush ride quality. Fresh competition is also out this year -- there's the all-new 2015 Acura TLX and the updated 2015 Volvo S60 to consider. And you're still going to want to look at the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series. They're generally the sportiest of the bunch, and while they can get pricey when you tack on extras, they're our top choices when it comes to getting a refined driving experience.

Overall, we've given the MKZ a "C" rating. It could be worth a look -- especially if you want a hybrid -- but we suspect most car shoppers will be happier with one of the aforementioned entry-luxury sedans.

trim levels & features

The Lincoln MKZ is a midsize luxury sedan that comes in two trim levels: MKZ and MKZ Hybrid.

Both come with 18-inch wheels, automatic and adaptive LED headlights, LED taillights, adaptive suspension dampers, keyless ignition and entry (with an outside keypad), dual-zone automatic climate control, leatherette upholstery, a 60/40-split-folding rear seat, heated eight-way power front seats with power lumbar, driver memory settings, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and full power accessories.

Standard tech equipment includes the Sync voice command system; the MyLincoln Touch infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen interface; a rearview camera; rear parking sensors; and an 11-speaker sound system with CD player, auxiliary/USB/iPod input jacks and satellite radio.

Most options are grouped into packages. The Select package adds an auto-dimming driver-side mirror, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, leather upholstery, ambient lighting and HD radio. The Reserve package includes those features plus a navigation system, a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert, a power-close trunk lid, a heated steering wheel, a 110-volt power outlet, ventilated front seats and heated rear seats. For the Select and Reserve packages, 19-inch wheels and a premium 14-speaker surround-sound audio system are also available.

The Technology package bundles adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam control, an automated parallel parking system, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and frontal-collision warning with automatic braking for collision mitigation. There's also a Summer Tire Handling package (AWD, non-hybrid only) that includes 19-inch wheels, summer tires and a sport-tuned suspension and steering rack.

The Black Label series essentially starts with a MKZ with the Reserve package and adds an "experience liaison" (who will meet the customer and assist in the shopping process) and a choice of four premium interior design schemes (called Indulgence, Oasis, Modern Heritage and Center Stage) that boast premium materials including special leather upholstery and designer wood trim. The Black Label also offers exclusive exterior colors.

Individual option highlights include a standard sunroof, a panoramic glass roof with integral sunroof, massaging front seats, a power rear sunshade and rear inflatable seatbelts.

performance & mpg

The 2015 Lincoln MKZ offers three engine choices. A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is the base engine, generating 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque through a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional.

In Edmunds testing, an all-wheel-drive MKZ with this engine accelerated from zero to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds, an average time for the class. The EPA fuel economy estimates for the non-hybrid models with the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine are 26 mpg combined (22 city/33 highway) for the front-drive MKZ and 25 mpg combined (22/31) for the AWD-equipped MKZ.

The optional 3.7-liter V6 produces 300 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque, also through a six-speed automatic and either front- or all-wheel drive. In Edmunds testing, a V6-powered all-wheel-drive MKZ covered zero to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds, a below-average result for an entry-luxury sedan with an upgraded engine. Front-drive V6 models return an EPA-estimated 22 mpg combined (18/27), while all-wheel-drive models achieve 21 mpg combined (18/26).

Finally, the 2015 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid pairs a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with an electric motor that combine to produce a total of 188 hp. The hybrid is front-wheel-drive only and it returns an EPA-estimated 40 mpg combined (41 city/39 highway). On Edmunds 120-mile evaluation loop, we managed to earn 41 mpg which is unusually good considering our route typically rewards cars with high EPA-highway mpg.

In Edmunds testing, an MKZ Hybrid accelerated from zero to 60 mph in 8.9 seconds, slower than the mechanically similar Ford Fusion Hybrid that needed 8.5 seconds to do the same. It's also about a second behind the Lexus ES 300h.

safety

Standard safety features include antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front side-impact airbags, front knee airbags, side curtain airbags, a rearview camera and rear parking sensors. The 2015 Lincoln MKZ also features the programmable MyKey system, allowing parents to set limits for vehicle speed and stereo volume for their young drivers. Sync also offers emergency crash notification that automatically dials 911 in the event of an airbag deployment.

Optional equipment includes blind-spot monitoring; rear cross-traffic alerts; a lane-departure warning system; a lane-keeping assist system (which automatically helps the driver keep the car in its lane); a forward-collision warning system with brake priming; and inflatable rear seatbelts.

In Edmunds brake testing, an MKZ with standard all-season tires stopped from 60 mph in 121 feet, an average distance for this segment. The MKZ hybrid did slightly better at 120 feet.

In government crash testing, the MKZ earned the maximum five-star rating for overall crash safety, with five stars for total frontal-impact protection and four stars for total side-impact protection. In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tests, the MKZ earned a top score of "Good" in the moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side-impact, roof-strength and whiplash protection (seatbelts and head restraints) tests. A second-best score of "Acceptable" was awarded for the car's performance in the small-overlap frontal-offset test.

driving

Equipped with the standard 18-inch wheels and all-season tires, the 2015 Lincoln MKZ offers a quiet, compliant ride -- exactly what you expect from this class, and more particularly, from Lincoln. However, we've also tested an MKZ with 19-inch wheels and summer tires (a rarely equipped option on this car), and it had a stiff, noisy ride. If you're looking for comfort, we recommend the smaller wheels and all-season tires.

Something you might not expect from the MKZ is its ability to corner. The standard adjustable suspension and quick electrically assisted steering make the MKZ feel more alert than any other Lincoln in recent memory. The MKZ isn't quite as sporty or agile as some of its German rivals, but most consumers will find it competent and enjoyable in this regard. All-wheel-drive models don't offer a dynamic advantage on dry roads, so we really only recommend it for buyers who frequently come across inclement weather.

Although the V6 offers more power, we've found the turbocharged four-cylinder is plenty capable as well. It's lighter and offers sharp throttle response. Acceleration to 60 mph is just a half-second slower than the V6 version and it offers better fuel economy.

The 2015 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is generally as pleasant to drive as its gasoline counterparts, and it maintains the ability to negotiate corners and curves with confidence despite the added battery weight. The hybrid rides smoothly and acceleration is adequate around town, but give it the spurs and you'll soon notice the engine droning as it maintains constant revs which is a common characteristic of cars with continuously variable transmissions. There's enough passing power on the highway, too, especially if you plan ahead. As with most hybrids, the regenerative braking takes some getting used to, though, and inching forward or backward into a parking stall takes a delicate touch on the brake pedal.

interior

Inside, the 2015 MKZ's flowing center stack and console, without buttons or knobs, feels mildly futuristic. But while the aesthetic looks forward, the materials don't go much beyond what you get in the related Fusion. The brushed metal accents are nice from afar but exposed as garden-variety plastic on closer inspection. In the absence of a steering-wheel-mounted stalk shifter, the MKZ has gear selector buttons, but they feel thin and flimsy, without any damped, tactile sensation.

The MKZ's styling distinctions also yield slightly less interior space than the Fusion. The high center console can make the front seating area feel a little confining, while the coupelike roof line infringes on the headroom of taller rear seat passengers. Rear-seat legroom, however, is generous.

The standard MyLincoln Touch (a.k.a. MyFord Touch) system handles Bluetooth, audio, navigation and other vehicle functions via its crisp 8-inch touchscreen. And there's still the useful Sync voice command system that can control many of the car's functions.

In practice, however, MyLincoln Touch's processing speeds still seem sluggish during certain tasks. Nonetheless, it is greatly improved over past iterations and tech-savvy owners will likely appreciate the system's vast capabilities.

The MKZ offers decent trunk space at 15.4 cubic feet, although the hybrid's capacity shrinks to 11.1 cubic feet due to the battery pack. Non-hybrids also feature a 60/40 split-folding rear seat.

Impressive Automobile
John Borkowski, 2/17/2016
I owned a hybrid for the last five years but I now need a larger trunk. Scott McCarty, from Plaza Lincoln in Leesburg, FL, located a used MKZ 2.0L I4 GTDI engine with 6 speed transmission with 10000 miles which I purchased. I hoped to get 25 mpg. I have put 2000 miles on the car since. I am pleased to find I get 27 mpg overall. My mpg at 70 - 75 mph averages 32 which is the same as my hybrid. The engine is very smooth - feels like a V8 - with plenty of power. The car has a very comfortable ride and has may standard features that you pay extra for on other cars. The car handles very well at both high and low speeds. It has a great warranty and service from Lincoln and the dealer. A very large power trunk, intelligent access with push button start which is very convenient. It has ten way power seats both passenger and driver with power lumbar. The driver seat has memory and they are both heated and cooled. It has heated power mirrors with security approach lamps and adaptive LED head lamps. Navigation and rear view camera. In other words - it is loaded!
MKZ Hybrid is an amazing car
aranala, 2/24/2015
I had not owned an American car in 40 years, since I purchased a Buick Skylark, used. In the intervening years I have owned several Volvos, MBs, BMWs, and AlfaRomeos, so I purchased this Lincoln with great hesitation. I chose it because I wanted a mid size confortable car with great mileage. The MKZ, after 11,900 miles is proving to be a very lucky or wise decision. The MKZ is silent even at 90 MPH on the Florida Turnpike, steering is responsive, tight, ride is like you want it to be, comfy or sporty, the seats are like first class in Lufthansa and it has the quietness of a concert hall to enjoy the jazz coming out of the HD system. And I´m getting 38 MPG. Very good .
Great looking car and to drive and own.

Picked up my 2015 MKZ Hybrid on New Year's Eve and so far its a joy to drive. In the past I've had an Acura TL and 2 Corvettes. The car I traded in for the Lincoln was a 2008 Toyota Prius and although I loved the Prius I was totally disgusted with Toyota's Service Department and never felt they treated me as a valued customer. I had done research on the Lincoln months ago and since I wanted another Hybrid with some Luxury Lincoln fit the bill all the way around. I was impressed with its look and decided to do some hands on research. I love the look of the BMW, Acura and Audi 5 but overall the Lincoln offered better Quality and used Regular Gas instead of Premium like its competition.
Looker...needs a couple of refinements inTHX, Nav.

Got the reserve trim with multi-contour (multi-inflatable, infinitely customizable, massaging) seats, Luxe Metallic, THX sound system, 10 spoke wheels with painted slots that almost match the Luxe paint. It's a great looking car especially with the after-market 35% transmissive side and rear window tint. Very comfortable, very quiet. Michelin tires were unexpected. Update: Michelin tread lasted only 35,000 miles, though. Ordered Barum Bravuris tires through Discount Tires which were half the price and seem every bit as good as the Michelins. Got 40.3 mpg freeway miles back from dealer at 70-75 mph. Been averaging 41 in all around local driving, mostly suburban. Luxe paint I really like--goes from a pewter gray with a hint of taupe and even gold in certain light angles. Wife not crazy about color, though. I thought it was an interesting switch from the silvers and grays that have been out there for many years. She wanted white, which to me says, "fleet car". Interior is very modern, flat, and simplified with touch screen and finger sensitive volume and fan sliders. Unfortunately this system has been discontinued. Fan speed noise is well muffled except at higher settings. (the Toyota Avalon which we also test drove had much noisier fan). The Avalon also had too European handling (stiff ride for long distance cruising) at least in the high end trim. Controls were all very configurable. My only complaints are two: (1) the THX system is a waste of money in my opinion. Yeah, it's powerful and can be set up with a booming base if you like, BUT, the THX system adds that center speaker (in addition to the traditional stereo left and right channels). That works well in a home or movie theater, but first of all you can't get surround sound very easily because most media doesn't contain the surround channels. Sirius satellite does not broadcast surround to automobile receivers (I called them about this). FM HD doesn't contain it (I called 2 station engineers). CD's generally do not have surround encoded although you supposedly can get them. Reportedly there also are DVD recordings that contain surround sound, but who buys either of these any more? Some MP3 downloads reportedly have surround sound so that would likely be your only chance of using this feature. You can set your THX system to chose between "stereo" and "surround". I heard no difference in any of the media I played through it. But this is the real killer: The front center speaker's volume is factory fixed at 2 to 3 times the volume of the left and right speakers. This pretty well swamps out the stereo effect that you would hear from the side speakers. They might as well just have left out the left and right channels and had just the center speaker. You can compensate somewhat by fading the sound mostly to the rear which diminishes the effect of that loud center front speaker. If you read the forums you'll see that some have just disconnected the front center speaker, and others replaced the side speakers with more sensitive ones in an effort to balance out the center speaker volume. THX is an extra $1,000 option--forget it--not worth it. At least listen to the standard Lincoln audio system, then the THX, before you get excited about the THX "experience". Don't be swayed by the demo THX theater 30 sec. playback. They just juggle the relative volumes of all the speakers to make it sound impressive. Doesn't pan out anything close in reality. Number (2): The voice command Nav. system is archaic and updates are expensive. The menus are not intuitive. Most functions are locked out except when car is stopped. My $150 Garmin is far superior and updates are free. Any smart phone will give you much quicker directions these days and it automatically updates. The screen that comes with the NAV system does give you better control of station/media control and cell phone connection. Update: It looks like you can buy the annual Nav update SD card for about $50 from Ebay. Much cheaper than going through dealer. Performance problem update. At 35,000 miles in temps above 85 degrees, the gasoline engine started over revving when accelerating. Normal at temps around 75 degrees. Also the gasoline engine's rpm's audibly would oscillate slowly up and down a little when driving at constant hwy. speed on level road. Will take in to dealer next week.
