The MKZ is a midsize luxury sedan that now puts a big focus on modern, elegant styling. High levels of comfort prevail, and all-wheel drive comes standard on all versions except the MKZ Hybrid, which counters with significant fuel savings. This car also has a sporty side when equipped with the 400-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V6 engine, not to mention the adaptive suspension and dynamic torque-vectoring system that maximize handling and driving performance.
