Quick Note: 2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Rated at 45 MPG City/Highway
October 15, 2012 7:52 PM
Lincoln MKZ is aimed squarely at the Lexus ES 300h
We first brought you news about the
2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid in early April
. The stylish new midsize luxury sedan is taking the fight directly to Lexus' first ever ES hybrid: the ES 300h.
Ford today announced that the MKZ Hybrid bests its closest competition in the miles per gallon (mpg) race, achieving an impressive 45 mpg in the city and 45 mpg on the highway. The
Ford Fusion Hybrid
, which shares the MKZ's underpinnings and powertrain, is rated slightly higher at 47/47 (city/highway).
However, the fuel economy ratings put the MKZ Hybrid well ahead of the ES 300h, which is rated at 40/39 (city/highway).
“The all-new MKZ Hybrid proves that thoughtful customers who prioritize fuel economy and reducing emissions do not need to compromise on luxury, driving quality or advanced technology,” said Jim Farley, group vice president, Global Marketing, Sales and Service. “MKZ is our strongest proof yet on what the reinvented Lincoln stands for – beautiful vehicles with compelling and warm experiences that create a clear alternative in today’s increasingly competitive luxury marketplace.”
The MKZ Hybrid also holds a pricing advantage over its Lexus counterpart. The MKZ Hybrid starts at $35,925, which is the exact same starting price as the standard MKZ with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine (a 3.7-liter V6 is optional).
The Lexus ES 300h commands a heftier $38,850 price of entry.
