Rather than just two basic trim styles on the Lincoln MKS Sedan, there are three: the EcoBoost, the AWD and FWD. Though there is little variation between the all-wheel drive (AWD) model and the front-wheel drive (FWD) other than the steering, each comes with amenities like rain wipers that sense moisture, parking sensors, a blind-spot mirror and keyless start up and entry. The Lincoln MKS Sedan also features a voice-activation system, all backseats are thoroughly ventilated and heated, and there is still 18.4 cubic feet of truck space. This amount is rivaled by some crossovers, so if you are going to be carrying a lot of cargo there is definitely room with the MKS. You can expect to see the touchscreen navigation, back-up camera and a DVD player in the more elaborate Navigation additional package. When selecting the option of the EcoBoost trim, like other Lincolns with this addition, you will have chrome wheels, a leather steering wheel, upgraded seats and sill plates that light up. The Lincoln MKS Sedan also has the option for cruise control if customers choose the EcoBoost model. However, as previously mentioned, some of the interior amenities and features do not have the refinement that you would expect from the price tag, or even from Lincoln in general.
Consumers can take refuge in the fact that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has had some positive notes about the Lincoln MKS Sedan. Not only did it get high ratings for the roof, side-impact and frontal-impact tests, but there are some other good safety amenities incorporated - like traction and stability control and antilock brakes. While each of these safety features is comparable to all other sedans on the market, many consumers feel it is the least that should be put into this vehicle, especially with such a high price tag. Unfortunately, all too often the positive aspects of the Lincoln MKS Sedan are well overshadowed by the negatives.
