The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Lincoln MKS’s smart performance, subdued good looks, and roomy interior put the brand back in full-size, luxury-sedan territory. The new CTS can keep up with Mercedes and BMW competitors without mimicking them, and boasts some of the top tech features in its class.
