Features of Lincoln MKZ
- Push button Shift
In 2016, Lincoln MKZ’s traditional “PRNDL” shift lever gave way to five dash-mounted buttons. This new design is inspired from 1950. This modern version is all-electronic and provides safety precautions to help avoid accidental shifts. The new model also has more storage capacity in the center console.
- Lincoln Drive Control
Lincoln MKZ’s drive control can adjust steering, throttle response, transmission shift points, traction control, and suspension. You can adjust their settings as per the requirement. They are controlled from a single point with three modes that are sports, normal and comfort.
- Inside features
Though Lincoln MKZ is better than before, it still needs improvement. Its exterior is more improved than the interior. However, the luxurious interior features still make an impact in the league that MKZ falls in, regarding its material, design, and texture. “My Lincoln Touch” controls pose some trouble when used, and its touchscreen menu would annoy a driver for relying on it to do as simple tasks as navigation. The car looks larger from outside, but that doesn’t make it spacious from inside.
The Ford Fusion inspires the Lincoln MKZ’s exterior. The grille is criticized for being overdone. The trend of huge grilles on cars is expected to go soon. The cap less-fuel-filler system is an added feature. They can be refilled without getting our hands dirty or if we forget fuel cap.
If a well-equipped powerful car is what you are looking for, the price of 2016 Lincoln MKZ is easily justified, since you will be availing of amazing features at the right price.
