2010 Lincoln MXZ

<a href="http://topics.latimes.com/autos/lincoln"><b>2010 <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="prdcrmk23" title="Lincoln" href="/topic/services-shopping/vehicles/makes-models/lincoln-prdcrmk23.topic">Lincoln</a> MXZ </b></a><br>
<br>
<b>Overview:</b> This mid-size luxury sedan gets a restyling, and although the power of its 3.5-liter V-6 remains at 263 horsepower, various tweaks to the driveline have shaved six-tenths of a second from its claimed zero-to-60-mph time (now 7.1 seconds). A Sport version with a bespoke tune has been added to the range; eagle eyes will notice the red Z of this car’s MKZ badge, whereas the standard model’s chassis has been revised for greater comfort.<br>
<br>
<b>Our take:</b> Add the Sync infotainment system, adaptive headlights, rain-sensing wipers and a blind-spot alert to the list of available equipment, and the new MKZ looks like a real improvement over the old one.<br>

2010 Lincoln MXZ

Overview: This mid-size luxury sedan gets a restyling, and although the power of its 3.5-liter V-6 remains at 263 horsepower, various tweaks to the driveline have shaved six-tenths of a second from its claimed zero-to-60-mph time (now 7.1 seconds). A Sport version with a bespoke tune has been added to the range; eagle eyes will notice the red Z of this car’s MKZ badge, whereas the standard model’s chassis has been revised for greater comfort.

Our take: Add the Sync infotainment system, adaptive headlights, rain-sensing wipers and a blind-spot alert to the list of available equipment, and the new MKZ looks like a real improvement over the old one.
