With new luxury sedan 2016 Lincoln MKS, Lincoln decided to attract its usual customers… and their grandchildren. The second generation of Lincoln MKS is an attempt to re-establish Lincoln’s reputation as a premium competitor in the USA.
The styling direction Lincoln wants to take in the future is clear even from a glance at the bodywork – creating an “American” style. The rear part of the car is adorned with conservative lines, reminiscent of the ‘70s models. The well-known sharp profile which always helped Lincoln stand out from the crowd has been retained as well. It contains some of the expected exterior tricks such as walk-up LED lighting or a floating roof spoiler. The front is enriched with a split wing-like grille.
2016 Lincoln MKS has that extra shine it needs thanks to 21-inch wheels. However, 18 and 20-inch-wheel versions will probably also be available.
2016 Lincoln MKS has divisible, heated and upholstered seats with the possibility of bending. Its cabin is really spacious, and same goes for the luggage compartment. Thus, it will be able to meet the needs of different user types. Well equipped interior also contains: Navigation System with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link, Steering Wheel-Mounted Cruise And Secondary Audio Controls, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Electrochromic (Auto-Dimming) Rearview Mirror, Intelligent Access With Push-Button Start, Dual-Zone Automatic temperature Control and more interesting and useful things.
