Lincoln unveiled today at the 2010 New York Auto Show the brand new 2011 MKZ Hybrid sedan, a new car which promises to be the most-fuel efficient luxury sedan in America!
This is also firm's first hybrid vehicle and is expected to deliver at least 41 miles per gallon in the city when it will go on sale this fall.
This means that the new MKZ Hybrid will be ahead of its competition a.k.a. 2010 Lexus HS 250h by 6 mpg due to the 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle I-4 hybrid engine, named one of Ward's 2010 "10 Best Engines."
As you expected, the MKZ Hybrid carries also an electric motor and has a total output of 191 hp. Plus, the pure electric mode on the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid extends to 47 mph compared with the Lexus HS 250h battery-only mode, which reaches just 25 mph (take that Lexus!).
Inside, we find new features and technologies that are either not offered on the Lexus HS 250h or are available only at an extra cost.
These are the SmartGauge with EcoGuide known as the successful interactive technology provides real-time information to help drivers maximize fuel efficiency but also the Lincoln SYNC (Lincoln-exclusive voice-activated communications and entertainment system), 10-way power passenger seat, power driver memory seat settings, heated and cooled front seats, genuine wood trim, reverse sensing system, keyless entry keypad, easy fuel capless fuel-filter, personal safety system, MyKey, integrated spotter mirrors and acoustic laminated windshield.
