The invitation to “Date Night” from Hassett Lincoln of Wantagh meant an opportunity to not only test-drive the 2014 Lincoln MKZ, their sleek luxury sedan, but to cruise around the town with a new car for the night.
At first look, I notice the stunning design that is the signature Lincoln split-wing front grill. Our salesman, Doug Hacker, gave us the full concierge treatment, introducing us to the MKZ ‘s luminous dashboard with safety features galore, driver assist technology, Bluetooth wireless and the advanced audio sound system. Now we’re ready for a good time, as my wife and I — music playing loud—were on our way to celebrate my birthday.
We were impressed with the seats—soft premium leather—and the open design center console that made us feel connected. The MKZ handled masterfully, even in the pouring rain, which dampened our enthusiasm to open the expansive retractable panoramic roof. On our way to dinner (thanks Hassett for the treat!), I tried out the push button shift, chose the sport mode and enjoyed the experience of our spirited ride, but man I really missed the shifter. I guess that’s from the old days of having a manual shift to rest my arm and feel more “in-control” of the gears.
As date night with our Lincoln MKZ was winding down, we relaxed in the driveway with the radio blasting “You’ve Got The Love” by Florence and The Machine—-feeling the love and the fun we had driving this affordable, stylish luxury sedan.”
