TCC’s Bottom Line
If you’re after a smooth, quiet, roomy, comforting luxury sedan that’s still good value, the 2018 Lexus ES may be one of the better choices. The 2018 Lincoln MKZ is a comfortable, quiet luxury sedan with the right ingredients but lacks in execution. The 2018 Volvo S60 is a pleasant car, but rivals and even the rest of Volvo’s lineup have left it in the dust.
