The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Lincoln MKZ places many of its bets on its distinctive styling, as well as its modern technology and best-in-class fuel economy. Great on gas or long on comfort and refinement--the Buick LaCrosse can be either, though we'd steer you toward the premium editions.
