The word

Lincoln MKZ HybridThe 41mpg city and 36mpg highway ratings of the MKZ Hybrid match that of the Ford Fusion Hybrid and beat the MKZ's nearest competitor, the Lexus HS 250h.

The EPA results are surprising, given the usually lackluster mileage performance of luxury vehicles. The Lexus tested at 35/34 (city/highway).

The Lincoln MKZ shares the hybrid powertrain used in the Ford Fusion.

And so ...

Interesting results, though real-world is often very different from EPA numbers.
