The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 MKZ has great potential as a contemporary sports sedan--it's the Lincoln heritage that's missing. The 2015 Audi A4 and S4 sedans are tech-laden, trim, handsome alternatives to the other expected German cars, as well as one very good American one.
