2020 Lincoln MKZ vs. Its Competition

2020 Lincoln MKZ
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Acura TLX is as similar to the MKZ as you can get: a front-wheel-drive sedan with a sleek design and plenty of features.

Audi’s A4 is a similar story, but with more brand cachet and a much higher top end, not to mention better quality.

The Chrysler 300 offers big American car comfort with the option for Hemi V-8 power at a discount.

Lexus’s ES is sneakily popular and looks and drives better than ever since a redesign.

The Volvo S60 is the best-looking of the bunch and can also be had in a wagon variant.

Quick Specs
5.8
The 2020 MKZ can’t match Lincoln’s SUV glamour, but they can’t match its hybrid gas mileage.
6.5
Athletic and well-appointed, the 2020 Acura TLX is an appealing mid-size luxury sedan, although the competition is fierce.
7.0
The 2019 Audi A4 is hiding in plain sight as one of the automaker’s most complete and well-rounded cars.
5.7
If it’s a certain retro appeal you’re after in a four-door sedan, few vehicles can compete with the moderately priced 2019 Chrysler 300.
8.0
The 2019 Lexus ES deletes “sedate” from its vocabulary.
