The Car Connection's Take

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Lincoln MKZ strikes out in a more confident direction, and places a big bet on best-in-class fuel economy and technology. Larger but leaner, the 2013 Lexus ES gains a hybrid model and some very attractive new styling to stave off strong new competition.
