2010 Lincoln MKZ Overview

When it was new, critics were impressed with the MKZ’s supple ride quality, which makes it a pleasant place to pass the miles. Most agreed that the MKZ doesn’t handle as well as competitors like the 2010 Cadillac CTS, but then, the MKZ isn’t geared toward the sport sedan crowd. The MKZ was refreshed for 2010, and updates include revised front and rear styling and an updated interior. The 2010 MKZ also received excellent safety ratings.

The 2010 MKZ’s 3.5-liter V6 produces 263 horsepower. While reviewers never said it feels especially fast, they noted that the MKZ has more than sufficient power. Both front- and all-wheel drive configurations are available. In addition, a Sport Appearance package has a stiffer suspension and larger wheels for more composed, agile handling. Front-wheel drive MKZs net 18/27 mpg city/highway, which is about average for the class. Adding AWD reduces fuel economy to 17/24 mpg city/highway. The MKZ’s trunk is one of the most cavernous in the class, with a maximum cargo capacity of 16.5 cubic feet.

Critics thought the MKZ’s interior had good fit and finish and was a comfortable place to spend time when it was new. They said its seats are comfortable and offer plenty of space in both front and back. Standard equipment includes leather seats, dual-zone climate control, parking sensors, heated and cooled front seats and Lincoln’s SYNC infotainment system. Available equipment includes a THX surround sound stereo, a power sunroof, navigation and a backup camera. In addition to a stiffer suspension, the available sport package also adds unique seat upholstery and trim materials.

Other Cars to Consider

If you are looking for a 2010 midsize car with more athletic handling, you might like the 2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Critics said the C-Class has sporty handling, but it’s still generally comfortable and composed. Keep in mind that some critics found the C-Class’ back seats cramped, and it doesn’t have as much trunk space, so it might not be as ideal for families.

Critics regarded the 2010 Lexus ES as one of the most luxurious cars in the class, with a smooth ride and a refined engine. Keep in mind that the ES is just as much a comfortable cruiser as the MKZ, so it may not appeal to those looking for something sporty.
