2014 Lincoln MKZ review

Are you the look of a Lincoln then?

By Sheikh

This is the Lincoln The what? Yeah I know. Lincoln is one of those brands tends to slip off the radar. know why it should though.

is an illustrious and historic brand, in 1917 by Henry Leland – a manager of Cadillac in fact. And yes it is after President Abraham

And yet apart from the Lincoln Car (no longer made) and the Lincoln (no longer trendy) you’d be pressed to recall any current from the marque. And yet Lincoln two saloons, two crossovers and two versions of the Navigator.

This then, the MKZ, is one of saloons, the smaller one in fact. that’s a relative term at 4930mm long and 1864mm – it’s slightly longer and than a Lexus ES, which in the BMW 5 Series segment currently in my opinion, by the Cadillac CTS.

it looks nothing like it, the MKZ is based on the new Ford Fusion – so we’re looking at a premium of that car from Ford’s wing. Unsurprisingly where Fusion prices (which at AED89k) top out at AED135k, the MKZ begins – of – at AED145, rising to AED195k.

having said that, the comes with a four-cylinder but the MKZ gets a beefy 3.7-litre V6 300bhp and 277lb ft of torque – and you do feel it through this drive chassis. There is an AWD version, but it’s not currently on the pricelist.

I find the styling pretty – sleek, smooth and a bit of a fusion. bold and thrusting at the front – American. And yet neatly and delicately at the back – somewhat European.

The work well and the profile is Handsome and elegant sums it up.

it’s inviting, comfortable decent space and legroom, in the back with an air of opulence it. It may not harness the finest quality of materials, but it does offer a and futuristic take on a car dashboard. isn’t a gear selector, you get buttons on the dashboard like an Martin.

The centre console design is and well executed and it incorporates the controls seem in the Fords the full compliment of Synch If there is anything that down the seemless experience in the controls, it’s the navigation requires and an odd press-and-hold action to and then the interface seems as odds with the more layout of the regular screen. But you don’t use the Nav much here so it matter.

From the driver’s the instrument binnacle does to sit lower than usual, but the steering wheel keeps the position acceptable. Besides the lower dash gives a impression of airiness and supposedly forward vision.

Select drive and stomp on the and you’ll encounter enough to overwhelm the traction control – there’s definite wheelspin. it hooks up, it propels the saloon rapidly at the horizon. Likewise you want for punch on the go as the engine and are very responsive and there really any need to call the sports setting.

Besides isn’t a sports saloon, and reflected in the ride and handling – the is very smooth and cosseting, the latter is merely competent reasonable response and a decent on inherent understeer. It’s a car set-up for smooth and unruffled though, rather than through bends.

This is actually a very alternative in its sector and offers comfort, space and style for its The pricing is reasonable and it’s equipped and stands out from the as a slightly different choice.

just one small fly in the ointment. As said, this is essentially the Fusion underneath and that car is and not that much slower. So for the who desperately wants something different, this should go on the list.

For the rest of us, wait the Ford Fusion is in the showrooms!
