Ford has gone to great lengths to improve the interiors of its vehicles, and products like the 2009 Lincoln MKS show the results.
The front seats in the 2009 Lincoln MKS offer “plenty of headroom for the tallest drivers,” Motor Trend reports, “and the cabin feels airy and plenty comfortable.” Car and Driver compliments the MKS’s “large, well-bolstered seats with just the right degree of firmness.”
Motor Trend adds that “back seat passengers will feel lucky, as the MKS has more rear interior room than cars like the E-Class and 5 Series,” and gives “kudos too for a large and usable trunk.”
Edmunds says the 2009 Lincoln MKS's interior, comfort, and quality take "a thoroughly modern route that is, dare we say, elegant. The center stack that smoothly flows into a high center console is particularly nice, in a coupelike way. There's a ton of space inside the cabin." Importantly, Edmunds also observed, "The MKS gets acoustic laminated glass for the windshield and the front side windows. In steady-state cruising, the MKS rides around making a gentle hushing sound."
When you're driving or riding in the 2009 Lincoln MKS, Automobile points out that the leather is "nice, and it does have a slightly richer hand feel than much of the plasticized leather you see these days, but it doesn't have much of that pleasing leather smell that you get in more expensive cars. Both heated and cooled front seats are standard, as are heated rear seats." According to Car and Driver, “the leather for the seats comes from Bridge of Weir, the Scottish company that supplied hides for the Continental Mark II 50 years ago.”
Overall, Motor Trend sums up the comfort and quality of the 2009 Lincoln MKS pretty well: "We've criticized Ford for cheapish interiors, but it has really bellied up to the bar for the MKS's cabin. The design is cool and classy, the materials are excellent, and it is a comfy, roomy place to live."
A roomy interior, underpinned with high-quality materials, set the 2009 Lincoln MKS apart from past efforts.
