The 2009 Lincoln MKS is a star when it comes to in-cabin entertainment and information sources, especially at its price. Though you will have to be content with a comfortable, rather than sporty, ride.
First shown at the 2007 LA auto show, the MKS represents a new flagship luxury sedan for Lincoln. The car features the best cabin tech available today, but is more luxury cruiser than sport luxury sedan.
Adaptive headlights are part of the Technology package, which also includes automatic high-beams. With this option, the brights turn on when it's dark and no other cars are visible, turning off when head or tail lights are in range.
The voice command button, located on the lower right of the steering wheel, activates the most advanced system we've tested. It lets you ask for music by artist name, dial phone numbers by contact name, and set destination by saying the street name.
The MKS allows for many audio sources, including full MP3-player integration. When you insert a CD, you can choose to rip it to the car's hard drive by touching the record button. The car's Gracenote database not only properly tags CD tracks, but it also includes album art.
