A lot of luxury sedans can seem affordable at first but then get rather pricey once you start adding all the options and packages. The 2018 Lincoln MKZ is different, however. Available in four trims, with three engine options, and in either front- or all-wheel drive, the MKZ provides a lot of features for the money.

The base trim, Premiere, starts you out with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine good for 245 horsepower. You also get features such as an adaptive suspension, adaptive xenon headlights, keyless entry and ignition, simulated leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats with heating, and Lincoln's Sync 3 infotainment interface with an 8-inch touchscreen display. A hybrid powertrain is also available, and uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine combined with an electric motor to produce a combined 188 hp. Lincoln doesn't charge extra for the MKZ Hybrid.

The MKZ Select is next up, and going with this trim allows optioning your car with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine. Power output is dependant on powertrain option, with the front-wheel-drive version producing 350 hp, and the all-wheel-drive version producing a whopping 400 hp. Other options include either sunroof or panoramic sunroof, a rear power sunshade, and upgrading to a 14-speaker Revel audio system.

If you're not satisfied yet, the MKZ Reserve is the top. It comes standard with 19-inch wheels, power trunklid, navigation, a Revel audio system, blind-spot monitoring, and heated and ventilated front seats. On the Reserve, you can add extra features, including massaging multicontour front seats and a 20-speaker (versus 14) Revel audio system. There's also a Driver's package that comes with dynamic torque vectoring, painted brake calipers, a sport-tuned suspension and special 19-inch wheels.

Finally, the Black Label is equipped similarly to the Reserve but with upgraded leather upholstery and a simulated suede headliner, with a choice of three unique themes. More importantly, the Black Label comes with a host of unique services, including a mobile showroom, remote vehicle delivery and pickup and drop-off of your car for service work.

With so many options, and packages, it's important to research your 2018 Lincoln MKZ. So let Edmunds help you build and find your perfect MKZ.
