2017 Lincoln MKZ vs. Its Competition

2017 Lincoln MKZ

If you're not the kind to head for the 400-hp, twin-turbo V-6, we think the Hybrid is the better option over the 4-cylinder model; it offers better mileage plus better refinement—with only a slight trade-off in responsiveness.

Quick Specs
With available 400-hp, all-wheel-drive performance, plus a new face and more features, the 2017 MKZ could be an advance team for a different sort of Lincoln.
The 2017 Acura TLX is a near-luxury competitor in a luxury field crowded with very good (and very pricey) cars with European badges on them.
The 2017 Audi A4 advances its sport-sedan credentials in lots of incremental ways, but the virtual cockpit drops the digital mic.
An excellent chassis and a nice interior mean the LaCrosse should be on your shopping list. At the low end, it represents an excellent value and should be on any full-size sedan buyer's shopping list.
The 2017 Volvo S60 is a solid alternative to those tired of the German sedan game. It's not as flashy, but it is more sensibly priced.
