The 2010 Lincoln MKZ offers customers more standard luxury and segment-exclusive safety features for their money than other midsize luxury sedans.
The vehicle’s standard luxury features include Bridge of Weir leather seats, genuine wood trim, heated and cooled front seats, the popular SYNC entertainment and connectivity system, a reverse sensing system and driver multi-adjustable power seat.
The vehicle’s segment-exclusive safety features include the all-new Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross Traffic Alert (CTA), which makes navigating traffic and parking a lot easier and safer. BLIS tracks vehicles in the blind-spot zones on either side of the vehicle using two multiple-beam radar modules behind the rear fenders, and CTA uses the BLIS radar sensors to alert the driver to approaching traffic while in reverse and backing out of a parking spot.
“Customers universally are surprised when they get into a competing vehicle and find out that they have to pay more for luxury features, such as premium leather seats,” said Jonathan Richards, Lincoln MKZ Marketing manager. “That’s what sets the MKZ apart from the competition. It comes standard with all the features you would expect from a world class entry-level luxury sedan.”
The new MKZ also offers an ultra-quiet cabin, a feature that consumers connect to overall product quality and satisfaction levels. According to Ford research, the 2010 MKZ also beats out the current Lexus ES350 in key interior quietness attributes, such as road noise at 30 mpg and wind noise at 80 mph.
The interior quietness coupled with the premium THX II Certified 5.1 Surround sound system available in the MKZ offers customers an exceptional in-car audio experience, says Richards.
“This pairing represents one more example of why customers are now equating the Lincoln brand with elegant, modern design, unparalleled comfort, unrivaled features and best-in-class quality,” he said.
