I like the Hybrid. Great value for the money.

Terrific. I have owned 2 Lexuses, 1 BMW, 1 Volvo, 1 Mercedes and one Lincoln. This is as good as any. Price/value exceeds them all.

Luxurious Ride for a Great Deal

by Travis from Dallas, TX | April 27, 2020

The MKZ Hybrid offers the smoothest ride of any car I've driven. It's like driving on a cloud. The reserve trim has a bevy of features that leave you refreshed after a drive. I live in Texas and the vented seats were a godsend. It has good legroom in the rear as well as rear usb ports for passengers. A used MKZ hybrid is a great bargain, I got a used 2017 for $22500 with 23000 miles.

Sexy looking car!

Love the looks of this car inside and out. I needed a hybrid for work, or else I would’ve bought the 3.0. The hybrid is slow and not much horsepower. Also, the hybrids have very very small trunk space because the battery is back behind the backseat. But, awesome gas mileage. I have a heavy foot and get about 35.6 mpg. So, that’s worth it for me to have bought the hybrid.

2017 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Overview


The 2017 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is the more fuel efficient version of the midsize luxury sedan. This year, it has a revised front-end and updated technology. It competes with the Cadillac CTS, Buick LaCrosse, and Lexus ES. The gas-powered MKZ is covered in a separate overview.

Four trims are available: the Premiere 400A, Select 500A, Reserve 600A, and Black Label Hybrid 900A.

The MKZ has been restyled more moderately than its predecessor. This time, it has a singular front grille with a unique ogee-mesh pattern. The headlights are squared off and separated from the grille. The front fascia has larger, aggressive air vents and a metallic trim. The MKZ has a narrow, three-piece LED tail light strip that stretches across its blockish rear. Standard features include adaptive suspension, power/heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators, a dual-pipe exhaust system, and HID headlights. Available features include adaptive LED headlights, a power trunk, and a panoramic moonroof.

Powering the MKZ Hybrid is a standard 188-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with an electric motor mated to an electronic continuously variable automatic transmission. It has a 1.4kWh lithium-ion battery, which produces 35 kW of battery power. Fuel efficiency for the MKZ Hybrid has an EPA-estimated 41/38 mpg city/highway.

Inside, the MKZ has a premium leatherette interior with a split-folding rear seat. The Black Label trim has Venetian leather seating with Lincoln’s unique star pattern embossment. The center stack features the SYNC 3 multimedia system, which includes a 10.1-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, a satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and dual USB ports.
