The Destination Luxury team recently took a road trip to Paso Robles in a 2017 Lincoln MKZ to Daou Vineyard’s annual Great Gatsby Gala. We found that the new MKZ is a very successful entry into Lincoln’s line of luxury vehicles.
“Our customers are looking for three attributes in a luxury midsize sedan – technologies that ease their everyday experience, a beautiful design that is crafted with attention to detail, and a vehicle with impressive power that makes it a pleasure to drive,” said Kumar Galhotra, president of Lincoln.
The car comfortably seats five with room to spare and is the ideal commuter vehicle. The car is equipped with modern technology including Sirius Radio, GPS and a feature that prevents the operator from veering off-course. For instance, if the car goes a little to the left or right, crossing a lane, the steering wheel will quickly vibrate
The sunroof is cutting edge with its sleek flush design. It gracefully curves over the roof of the car and slides back. It would appear that the design is inspired by the works of the renown futurist, Syd Mead.
Lincoln has partnered with Harman’s most luxury loudspeaker brand, Revel audio, to create a luxury sound system which is a work of art in itself – with personalized multi-dimensional sound in every seat, the powerful bass complements the smooth, authentic treble. The interior includes noise canceling technology which when combined with Revel audio, can only be compared to an intimate home theater experience.
The MKZ is the definition of a luxury vehicle. From it’s spacious and masterfully crafted interior to its powerful twin turbo charged engine, the MKZ is no ordinary luxury vehicle; it’s a car that’s a blast to drive and brings industry a defining class. We were able to comfortably fit costumes, camera, gear, five people, luggage, and groceries into the car. By all accounts, the car was a success among the group.
