The Lincoln MKZ is a mixture of good and bad as far as the styling goes. I think that the MKZ looks great from the side and rear. The light bar across the back is super modern and the sharp edges also add to the futuristic design.



The interior of the MKZ is also looking good. Having the centre console be entirely one piece was a great move. It is simple and refined. Exactly what you would expect from a modern interface design. Seamless flow between the different controls, and nice integration of the console into the rest of the interior.



And then you get to the front end of the MKZ :(

I think that the Lincoln grille is pretty ugly first of all. The whole whale tail wings thing doesn't seem very modern to me. The interior and rear of the MKZ are so subtle and then this grille is bulky and bold. I also am not a fan of the lines on the hood of the car. I don't think it is doing the design any favors.



I really think this is the cause of many people's dislike for Lincoln and the MKZ. It is sad that one thing can ruin the party for everything else.

The 2011 MKZ had kinda the same front end. It had a more blunt and flat front than the current MKZ that is more round. I think that it is a combination of the rounded end and the grille that is weird. If the shape or the grille were a bit different it would be better. Also changing the slats to facing downwards instead of across.

My point was that I don't think that the signature grille is wholly bad, it is just the particular version of it on the MKZ. That is why I was talking about previous models and the difference in the direction of the slats etc. Lincoln can stick with their design language and grille design while still changing, and editing it so that is looks a bit better. There is potential there, I just think that they need to bring in an editing eye.
