A luxury sedan should be more than the sum of its parts, and back in base, Reserve I, and Reserve II trims for 2019, the new Lincoln MKZ breaks that mold. What do drivers from our eastern Rhode Island neighborhood appreciate most? Consider a few highlights. We think you'll see where our automaker's iconic mid-size car stands out from the rest.

First, a duo of engines to choose from demonstrates its status as a proven performer. Opt for a 245-horsepower, 2.0-liter I4 workhorse in base models or a high-octane 350-horsepower, 3.0-liter V6 in those above. Atop a front-wheel drivetrain and mated to a six-speed SelectShift® auto transmission, the car yields respectable fuel economy as well -- up to 20 mpg in the city, 31 mpg down the highway, and 24 combined mpg, by EPA estimates. Plus, with standard Lincoln Drive Control, available intelligent all-wheel drive, and optional Lincoln Co-Pilot360&#trade; driver-assistance technologies, it's not only the safe bet but also a confident, enjoyable ride.

Next, the sedan offers no shortage of accommodations for the trip, both comfort-wise and technologically. Ten-way power-adjustable front seats in base trims showcase drivers-side memory, standard heating, and optional cooling -- a lap of luxury for combatting New England weather. They rise to another occasion in the Reserve I trim, which standardizes both Bridge of Weir leather trim power lumbar support that adjusts in four ways. Reserve II trims reach the apex, offering sumptuous multi-contour front seats as well as Active Motion® massage capability. A standard Wollsdorf leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated rear outboard seats as options put on the finishing touches. Factor in standard 8-inch SYNC® 3 infotainment, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone integration, Lincoln Connect&#trade; 4G LTE Wi-Fi access, and options like premium Revel or Revel Ultima audio, and any drive can become a pleasure cruise.
