This makes me feel so good about the 2014 MKZ I just ordered, LOL

The definition of luxury is very subjective. The MKZ looks as good as any car on the road, has a smooth ride (I admit there are better driving cars out there), and the interior design is second to none. I would think anyone who put that list together would think something like the BMW 5-series defines luxury in this segment. Yet look at the mess that is the 5-series instrument panel compared to the MKZ:




It's not even in the same league as the MKZ from an aesthetics standpoint.

I agree. From a design standpoint I prefer the MKZ.

But the 5 series does have better quality materials (the price reflects that)

Congrats on your order! Which trim did you order?
Stock hybrid in Smoked Quartz. About the only upgrade that really appealed to me was the huge sunroof, but I wasn't paying $5,300 to get the package that offers it.

Instrument panel looks way better on the MKZ. I think most people agree that the inside of the MKZ is beautiful. It's the exterior that falls flat compared to other luxury cars IMO. Is it terrible? no. But I am not the biggest fan of the grille and a BMW's exterior looks far more appealing for sure.
I think I agree - I'd say right now the front of the BMW is a level higher (most likely because we are all just used to it and BMW hasn't changed the look in decades, so it's iconic) but the tail of the MKZ is much better.

At the same time, as an owner, while exterior is important, 99% of the time, I'm looking at the interior.

It is true that you end up seeing the interior of the car far more than the exterior as an owner, but I think the exterior is just as important. I know its vain, but art of the reason why you get a luxury car as opposed to a clunker is because of the way it looks when passersby look at your car. I don't want people to think I have an ugly car even if the inside is remarkable. I also like the back end of the MKZ but I think the front end could use a second look maybe.

They just need to flatten the nose a bit. I still like the look as-is.
