2008 Lincoln MKZ vs. Its Competition

2008 Lincoln MKZ
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

As you consider entry-level luxury sedans, you have a choice to make: front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive.

Sure, there are all-wheel-drive variants, but cars designed as front-drivers (pullers) have different personalities than those designed as rear-drivers (pushers).

Quick Specs
The 2008 Lincoln MKZ is a credible luxury bargain, with all-wheel drive and heritage styling cues as its killer apps.
The 2009 Audi A4 has grown into a more useful luxury sedan, though it goes overboard with optional, programmable handling.
The 2008 BMW M3 redefines the performance envelope for BMW's 3-Series range--but at a significant weight and price penalty. You might be going too fast to notice, though.
