The 2013 Lincoln MKS is a full-size luxury sedan that appeals to those who want an extremely well-equipped, comfort-oriented and technology-loaded sedan. Before its 2013 redesign it was already a formidable rival to the likes of the Volvo S80, Lexus ES 350 and Acura TL, but with its new continuously damping suspension and Drive Control interface--plus a host of active safety features--it sets its sights on the tech prowess of top German sport sedans...if not quite in all-out performance, in features and interior appointments. Considering all the phenomenal tech features packed into the Lincoln MKS, it is priced about $10k less than comparable German sport sedans, such as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class or BMW 5-Series, when packed with some of those same items.
