The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Lincoln MKZ is missing some heritage, but this luxury sedan is no longer missing the sportier new direction that could do this brand some good. The 2016 Volkswagen CC splits the difference between sleek coupe lines and four-door convenience—it's a grown-up compromise.
