MKZ makes it onto fuel efficient/ safe top 10 list
May 27, 2014 - 10:31 AM - by Truthiness
It's not often that you get a top 10 list that ranks car based on not one, but two different factors. AutoGuide put together a top 10 list of vehicles that are the safest and most fuel efficient cars available today.

In order for vehicles to make the list they had to have a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and achieve a minimum score of 38 combined MPG according to EPA tests. Plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles are excluded from the list.

You'll be happy to know that the 2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid made it onto the list at number 5. It gets 45 MPG across the board (city, highway, combined). It also has a 5 star rating from the NHTSA. Its also one of the most expensive cars on the list at $36,085. Now just being expensive doesn't mean its more luxurious, but I think its pretty safe to say that the MKZ is also one of the most luxurious cars on the list. Take a look at the full list below.

Top 10 Safest, Most Fuel Efficient Cars
1. 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid
2. 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid
3. 2014 Honda Civic Hybrid
4. 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid
5. 2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid
6. 2014 Toyota Prius v
7. 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid
8. 2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid
9. 2014 Lexus ES 300h
10. 2014 Kia Optima Hybrid, 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, 2014 Acura ILX Hybrid

May 13, 2014 - 11:58 AM - by alcatraz


The safety of your vehicle may not be the number one thing you think about when vehicle shopping, but having the peace of mind that your car is one of the safest on the road is a comforting feeling. Owners of the 2014 Lincoln MKZ will be happy to know that it is one of the safest new cars on the road, as AutoGuide has reported.

Taking a look at the crash test ratings for the 2014 Lincoln MKZ Base 4dr All-wheel Drive Sedan, the MKZ gets a 'good' rating in almost every category in the IIHS' crash test format. Everything got a 'good' except four categories. Those categories are "Overall evaluation," "Restraint and dummy kinematics," "Structure and safety cage," and "Structure/safety cage."

The NHTSA gives it five stars overall getting four or five stars in every category except "Side - Barrier, Side Barrier Rating Driver," and "Side - Pole Barrier combined, Side - Pole Barrier combined (FRONT)."

Here is the rest of the vehicles on AutoGuide's list:

10. 2014 Chevrolet malibu
9. 2014 Ford Fusion
8. 2014 Honda Accord
7. 2014 Honda Civic Sedan
