2017 Hyundai Genesis vs. 2017 Lincoln MKZ

When you are deciding to buy a new sedan, you might come across the Hyundai Genesis and the Lincoln MKZ. At first glance, you may be swayed by the fact that one of the Lincoln variants produces more than 400 horsepower, but don’t let this fool you. In reality, the 2017 Hyundai Genesis has a lot more to offer compared to the Lincoln, and would be the choice for anyone who compared the cars carefully first. These are some of the things that set the 2017 Hyundai Genesis far ahead of the Lincoln.

Design & Style

The Lincoln MKZ is certainly charming to look at, with smooth lines and a front end that bears some resemblance to the Jaguar XJ. However, when compared to the 2017 Hyundai Genesis, one can easily see that the Hyundai is the better looking of the two. It has a lot less clutter in the exterior design, making it look more stately.

In the interior, the two cars could not be more different. While the Lincoln has a dashboard that is cluttered with buttons and some trim pieces that don’t feel right, the 2017 Hyundai Genesis interior is simply perfect. The trim pieces fit well together, giving it a premium feel. The use of high quality materials also makes it more comfortable for both driver and passenger.

Technology & Safety

Some of the standard features you can get from both vehicles include traction control, multiple airbags, antilock braking and cruise control. However, the 2017 Hyundai Genesis goes much further to make sure that the occupants will not only be safer, but also more comfortable. Some of the features available in the Hyundai as standard options include heated seats, lane departure assistance systems, smart cruise control and four-way climate control.


The base Lincoln MKZ ships with a 3-liter twin-turbo engine developing 400 horsepower. It also generates 400 ft-lb of torque as well. The Lincoln MKZ has some performance and handling shortfalls, including having poorer traction control and handling compared to the Hyundai Genesis.

The base model of the 2017 Hyundai Genesis ships with a 3.8-liter 6-cylinder engine with rear wheel drive. The petrol engine develops 311 horsepower at 6000 rpm. There are many different drivetrain variants available to suit your needs, including one version with all-wheel drive. The Hyundai Genesis handles and corners well, and is as fun to drive as it is safe.

The Bottom Line

The Lincoln MKZ might have a few features that make it noteworthy, but the 2017 Hyundai Genesis would be the car to get if you are comparing the two. The 2017 Hyundai Genesis is not only much more fun to drive, but is also more practical, safer and has more to offer for a lower price. You are also guaranteed more reliability when you opt for the 2017 Hyundai Genesis rather than the Lincoln.
