The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 MKZ has great potential as a contemporary sports sedan--it's the Lincoln heritage that's missing. The Buick LaCrosse is both supremely comfortable and excellent on gas, but we'd point you to the Premium versions if you're seriously considering one.
