I currently drive Toyota Avalon that I’m trying to replace soon, and I wanted to some input from you guys.
I prefer comfortable and smooth driving cars over performance based cars with stiffer suspension. I also prefer subtle, understated, yet timeless designs that will still look classy for years down the road, instead of current trend of aggressive designs that look outdated after a year. I’m also a very practical person, so having a car with good reliability and mileage is an important factor, even better if it offers hybrid option. Price wise, low-mid 30k range is ideal.
Considering those factors, I have been looking at Lincoln MKZ as one of my choices
2017 Lincoln MKZ
One thing that holds me back, though, is that I’m a 27 year old young professional male that works in a financial industry. It embarrasses me to admit it, but I am a little brand conscious about a car I drive. To me, Lincoln always stood out as old people car. Most other young professionals in my situation and budget range would probably go for Lincoln MKZ’s biggest competitor, Lexus ES, which has design that I find a bit too aggressive, and a few thousands more expensive. But then, I drive Toyota Avalon, which is also considered for senior citizen, yet I’m happy with it.
What do you guys think of Lincoln brand in general, and a young professional driving one?
Thank you in advance!
