I’m going to say something that could destroy all credibility that I may possess as a car reviewer. This 2014 Lincoln MKZ is both a serious sports sedan and a plush, comfy luxury barge. How can that be? Glad you asked.
The trick is to order it like my test car. Get the EcoBoost 4-cylinder model with all-wheel-drive. Get the Reserve option package. Then get the Summer Tire Handling Package, which adds gorgeous 19-inch aluminum wheels, 245/40 Michelin Super Sport summer performance tires, and special sport tuning for the continuously controlled damping suspension and electric steering.
Trust me on this. The result will provide a genuinely entertaining sport sedan when you want it, and a soft, wafting luxury sedan when you need it.
