The 2008 Lincoln MKZ offers the kind of features expected in this class—plus a couple that are rarer in the second tier of sport luxury sedans.
Edmunds reports “17-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, wood trim, heated and cooled power front seats with driver-side memory, dual-zone automatic climate control and a seven-speaker CD stereo with satellite radio and an auxiliary audio jack” are standard on the MKZ. Car and Driver says "for the money, it offers an impressive list of standard equipment."
Some of this "impressive" standard Lincoln MKZ equipment includes "a hands-free communication and entertainment system [which] integrates mobile phones and media players using Bluetooth and USB technology...and a reverse-warning system that beeps at drivers to warn of things behind the vehicle," according to Cars.com. Edmunds notes that this "Lincoln SYNC" system allows a "cell phone's address book...[to be] wirelessly and automatically transferred to the vehicle."
Cars.com reports the "interior options include a navigation system and a premium audio system with 14 speakers." Kelley Blue Book says "among the many Lincoln MKZ options are chromed wheels, a power moonroof, High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps and DVD navigation." A THX-certified audio system is offered as an upgrade, and reverse parking sensors are also available, as is all-wheel drive—a scarcer feature among front-drive, luxury sport sedans.
The 2008 Lincoln MKZ scores some points on the competition with available all-wheel drive and SYNC.
