large, well-bolstered seats
Car and Driver

Exceptional comfort in big Lincoln MKS isn't limited to the front seat passengers.

The driver and front passenger have good legroom and headroom, with plush power seats that are heated and ventilated. The front seats in the 2010 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." There's enough shoulder room, but the driver will notice Ford's active headrests push too far forward for absolute comfort. The MKS' telescoping steering has a shorter travel than it should, which can force a closer driving position.

The MKS' rear seats are more spacious and supportive than any Lincoln in memory. "There's a ton of space inside," Edmunds reports. 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." TheCarConnection.com's editors note the trunk itself has an awkwardly shaped opening that limits its utility.

The MKS' cabin is among the best executed by Ford, period. Edmunds says the MKS takes "a thoroughly modern route that is, dare we say, elegant." Edmunds also observes, "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." Automobile asserts the MKS' the leather is "nice, and it does have a slightly richer hand feel than much of the plasticized leather you see these days." 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, the 2010 MKS impresses reviewers with its solidity and its build quality. "It's silent as a coffin and steady as a rock," Jalopnik proclaims. "We've criticized Ford for cheapish interiors, but it has really bellied up to the bar for the MKS' cabin," Motor Trend concludes. "The design is cool and classy, the materials are excellent, and it is a comfy, roomy place to live."

Conclusion

With spacious accommodations and high-quality materials, the 2010 MKS is a leap ahead for Lincoln.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
