Overall rating7.1 / 10
European and Asian brands have historically dominated the entry-level luxury sedan market, but Lincoln has been making an extra effort recently to make its MKZ more appealing. It gave the car a significant makeover in 2017 and continues to make small changes and updates. The 2019 MKZ packs plenty of standard features, so there's a certain amount of value to be had here considering rival cars are typically more expensive. The MKZ's fuel-sipping hybrid engine is appealing, as is its easy-to-use infotainment system.
There are some downsides, though. The interior is a little too cozy for a vehicle of its exterior size, and some of the materials used are lackluster in quality. The base four-cylinder engine's performance is also underwhelming. Overall, though, we think the MKZ is worth taking a look at if you want value from a car that's not the typical European or Japanese luxury sedan.
2019 Lincoln MKZ models
The 2019 Lincoln MKZ is available with three powertrains — a four-cylinder, a six-cylinder and hybrid — and three trims. The base MKZ comes well-equipped, but go with the Reserve I to get additional interior and technology options. The Reserve II increases luxury amenities and technology even further.
For the gas-powered trims, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (245 horsepower, 275 pound-feet of torque) is standard. It's paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available as an option. The MKZ Hybrid uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine combined with an electric motor to produce a combined 188 hp. All-wheel drive isn't available for the Hybrid, however.
The base MKZ model comes well-equipped with features such as 18-inch wheels, an adaptive suspension, adaptive xenon headlights, heated mirrors, rear parking sensors, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, simulated leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats with heating, driver-seat memory settings, and a 60/40-split folding rear seat with pass-through.
Standard technology features include Lincoln's Sync 3 infotainment interface, an 8-inch touchscreen display, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and an 11-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio and two USB ports. You also get windshield wiper de-icer and automatic wipers, and Lincoln's Co-Pilot360 suite of driver assist functions that include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane keeping assist and automatic high beams.
Stepping up to the Reserve I model gets you power-folding mirrors, leather upholstery, genuine wood trim, a power-adjustable steering wheel, enhanced interior ambient lighting, a power trunklid, a navigation system, adaptive cruise control, a 110-volt household-style power outlet and two backseat USB charging ports.
The Reserve II trim level has those features as standard, plus 19-inch wheels, ventilated and massaging front seats, an active parking assist system, a power sunroof, a power rear window sunshade, and a 14-speaker Revel audio system with HD radio capability. Optional for the Reserve II trim is a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 (also with a six-speed automatic). With front-wheel drive, it produces 350 hp and 400 lb-ft, while the all-wheel-drive version makes 50 hp more.
The Reserve I model can be had with a Reserve Plus package that contains 19-inch wheels, the Revel Ultima audio system with 14 speakers and HD radio, heated rear seats and steering wheel, and a power sunroof. The Reserve II trim can also be equipped with the MKZ Luxury package, which includes a retractable panoramic sunroof, LED headlights and a 20-speaker Revel Ultima audio system.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Lincoln MKZ?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
