This is a very beautiful and wonderful car. Had a 2012 MKZ previously which was also great. Had Cadillacs for over 50 years and have found that the Lincoln MKZ is superior to them. Currently have a 4 cylinder turbo engine and it has every bit of power as that of my previous V6.
The down side is the really, really small trunk. You have real trouble putting 2 golf bags in and you have to take the drivers out or just bend them, not a good idea for any golfer. Outside of that I love the vehicle.
The braking is poor on sudden stops.
2018 pilot Turing great on high way and around town average fuel economy 24 mpg. Round trip from Cape Cod Ma. to Marco Island Florida great car on stormy weather.
We bought the TLX to replace our TSX which was wrecked in an accident. I had driven the 2015 as a loaner car in the past. It was nice, but not quite what it is today. I like the style changes of the 2018 TLX. I also like the way the car drives. I expect because it is an Acura, we will have similar luck as we did with our TSX. So far this TLX is awesome. We love it!
I drove the 2017 SE with the leather seating as well as the push button start. It handled remarkably well even with the auto tranny in the manual mode, the exhaust note was nice and the car looked great with the stripe package as well as the stubby spoiler on the trunk. The price point is a bit high but the boxer engine runs smooth and effortlessly, The seats grab you and are adjustable to height and the back reclines into a comfortable position. I had to have it! only a week old, love it!
Really nice car. Car speaks for itself. The engine can make tons of power if it is build right!
