Ever since seeing the new MKZ, I always disliked it's headlight design and finally I found a way Lincoln can make the new MKZ look better, that is by using the MKC concept headlight design for it's mid-cycle refresh!

I agree with you but the square type projector headlamp from them still remain just a concept like for most vehicles. I still have yet to see a square projector out at the moment.

I don't see anything wrong with i like how the head light flow with the lincoln signature grille. i don't see it staying for long but in time maybe who knows they will eventually go with the square set up.

we can usually see the trends happening with the concepts. so I guess for the new refresh models of lincoln will probably have headlights closer to the MKC set up.

I don't see a huge difference between the two. The shape is largely the same and the look is defined much more by the grill shape than the actual shape of the headlights. I think I even prefer the MKZ headlight shape. It looks more sleek, which seems more appropriate for a sedan.

even if the headlamp was square in design with a round projector i bet people will be happy with it.
mkc seems to have a LED projector

I would like the transition going to LED since they have longer life than the HID bulbs. The should be cheaper to replace when they do go out.

Acura's RLX will be using their signature and very first Jewel eye LED projectors. Not sure if Lincoln would start implementing these in the MKZ. The MKX would see these before the MKZ does.

The headlights are not that bad. I would prefer if they had done something like what Acura did with the RLX or what Toyota did with the new Avalon.

Little late but I figured I will let you all know this one. The Headlights on the 2013 are LED and they turn with the car.

Look inside the headlight and it even says LED in small letter.

LED is really the way to go, it should even be like that on the MKZ. Even Acura understands this and is working to make a number of it's cars feature LED headlights

It will trickle to the MKZ soon not sure when but soon. Xenon's cost way more than LEDs it doesn't make sense to keep implementing them in to new cars.

I think it might be the grille that has to go and not just the headlights. The grille either looks like wings, or a whale tail. I'm not sure one option is better than the other.

Well the design was suppose to be inspired from the phoenix like in the commercial.
