There's a renaissance of sorts happening at Lincoln. It started with the mid-sized MKZ sedan a few years ago, followed by the redesigned MKX crossover. The introduction of the MKC crossover also brought a luxury offering to a very popular segment.

The renaissance will culminate with a new Lincoln flagship: The 2017 Continental. In preparation for that, Ford's luxury marque is already freshening its styling cues to be more consistent with the upcoming Continental.

Enter the 2017 MKZ. It's front fascia updated to reflect Lincoln's new design language, the MKZ also has some updated features. Overall, the MKZ represents a great car at its core (Fusion), and upgrades it with luxury appointments and overall feel fitting of the Lincoln brand.
