TQ Auto Bond: 2017 Lincoln MKZ

Tough, reliable and durable. We need to see more American vehicles compete for sales here in North America and by the looks of it (a feel), Lincoln has stepped up the quality when it comes to mid-luxury vehicles.

Not sure if the 2017 Lincoln MKZ is officially considered a mid-luxury vehicle, but we don’t care – we consider it one and for many reasons. 

Our favorite feature and automatic go to is the SYNC3 system. At the top of the control panel is an updated LCD touchscreen that uses the new SYNC3 technology, meaning it’s quick and laid out in a more sensible manner. There are also new transitions and animations that make the whole production look sleeker. The system also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Tested without a smartphone hooked up, it’s clear the system is quick and easy to use, although the navigation system hides a few crucial controls like zoom, which became frustrating when manipulating the view of the map.

The standard 2.0-liter turbocharged engine in the MKZ is mated to a 6-speed automatic
with push-button gears and gets a 5-hp/5-lb-ft boost for 2017. As expected, At the pump, you can expect returns of 40 mpg combined, with 41
city and 38 highway. A beautiful way to keep money in your pocket while enjoying the luxury of this sedan.

Now when getting the opportunity to get a weekend getaway at JW Marriott, The Rosseau Muskoka Resort and Spa, offers a smooth and comfortable drive as the seats are all-day comfortable, with options for heat and ventilation at this top-tier level, including backseat heat.

Located in the heart of the Muskoka Lakes, this resort in Canada combines luxury and adventure for the ultimate retreat, Named one of the ten best resort views by National Geographic, this Canadian resort boasts an array of indoor and outdoor activities year-round.

The 2017 Lincoln MKZ is our self-proclaimed mid-level luxury vehicle and is made for you if the way your car makes you feel is more important than how other people feel about your car.
