The MKS's American take on full-size luxury leaves it off the list of the typical German-luxosedan shopper, but it's an able competitor for another set of four-doors, ones without sporty handling as a priority.
The new Acura RLX has been nipped and tucked into a better car than it replaces, but at times the distinctions can feel minor.
Volvo's S80 is related to the MKS but lacks the turbocharged option, and almost all the swagger.
You'll find that all and more in the Chrysler 300, with rear-drive and an equal amount of technology, and a lower pricetag, too.
The Lexus GS is one choice among that brand's high-touch, high-dollar offerings--but we'd also suggest the Lexus ES 350 and its newly expanded rear seat as a fine MKS alternative.
