Lincoln is always out to impress, whether it’s with its design, innovation, or safety. The 2017 Lincoln MKZ and MKX have definitely achieved all of the above. Both cars have been named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
The IIHS doesn’t hand out safety awards generously. Cars must go through vigorous testing to be considered a Top Safety Pick. Both the MKZ, a mid-size car, and the MKX, a mid-size SUV, took home the prestigious award. To earn the title of Top Safety Pick, both cars had to pass crashworthiness tests that analyzed how each car held up in crash scenarios.
Part of what makes both of these cars so safe is the ample list of driver-assist technologies like Pre-Collision Assist and Pedestrian Detection. These features, and many more, give drivers extra help on the road when they need it and help prevent crashes.
With the 2017 Lincoln MKZ and MKX, you aren’t just getting a Top Safety Pick; you’re also getting everything you love about Lincoln. An intuitive and comfortable interior gives you that luxury you love and there’s still all that power behind the pedal.
