In some ways, the 2011 MKZ Hybrid is old news. As a badge-engineered version of the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid, we've seen its power train before. Cabin tech is also mostly the same, although the Lincoln benefits from an audiophile-level THX audio system.

But what was excellent last year remains excellent. Comparable midsize sedans come nowhere close to the fuel economy of the MKZ Hybrid. Sync, Sirius Travel Link, and Lincoln's navigation system are all first rate technologies. And we cannot emphasize enough the pleasure afforded by the THX audio system.

Check out our 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid review.
