The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
7.6
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 STS is middle-of-the-pack in many respects, but it stands out as Cadillac’s technology flagship.
