Photos of the Lincoln MKZ

Grille inspired by classic Lincolns has few fans. But it works for me on the MKZ. LED headlights.

Clean lines from round nose to tapered tail.

The MKZ won't be confused with the Fusion despite shared underpinnings.

Sleeker than the previous ES, but still relatively stodgy.

Unusually elegant for this price range. But does anyone notice, or care?

Rear pillar flows cleanly into broad shoulder over rear wheel. Complex surfacing.

Slender LED tail lamps complete elegant theme.

2013 redesign included a more steeply raked rear window. But the rest is thoroughly conventional.

Floating center console dominates the MKZ's interior.

Busier, less elegant interior styling in the Lexus. But roomier.

Basic theme inspired by a manta ray.

Attractive theme, but too much hard plastic. And controls could be easier to operate.

Poor fit by design.

Another angle on the sweeping console.

My favorite of many gauge modes provides the most info on how hard the various bits are working.

A coach lets you know how efficiently you're driving the MKZ.

Slender seat provides good comfort and support. Optional seat adds adjustable bolsters and massage.

The Lincoln's fatal flaw. Too tight.

Fairly tight, but at least the rear seat folds.

Smoother and quieter than the engine in the Lexus ES hybrid, but less powerful.
