2019 Lincoln MKZ vs. Its Competition

2019 Lincoln MKZ

The 2019 Acura TLX is a close foil for the MKZ: a front-wheel-drive-based sedan with economy car roots and luxury features and appointments.

They even share multi-reflector HID headlights.

Audi’s A4 is also front-drive-based but commands a significant badge and price premium.

The Chrysler 300 may not be from a true luxury brand, but its road manners and optional big V-8 power are enticing.

Lexus’s ES flies off dealer lots and should continue to do so with a thoughtful recent redesign.

Finally, Volvo’s S60 is sportier than ever but delivers on understated luxury and design better than most.
