The large four-door Lincoln sedan was launched into the region in 2009 and sits at the top of Ford’s luxury division line-up.

It offers a technology-heavy package for the family man looking for something a little left of the mainstream alternatives. Though to feel fully at home with the MKS you have to be a fan of chrome as this four-door is absolutely covered in the shiny substance.

With four-wheel drive and a potent 273bhp, 3.7-litre V6 engine, the MKS provides an involving drive for whoever’s behind the wheel. Inside, it’s a pretty strong technological tour de force for Ford with keyless entry and push-button start, adaptive cruise control, a rear view camera which works with the all-round sensors to assist in parking and an inbuilt Bluetooth hands free kit for your mobile phone.

The MKS also features Ford’s latest SYNC system, which has been developed with Microsoft. This clever piece of kit allows you to control mobile phones and MP3 players by just using voice commands. There’s also an extremely powerful surround sound stereo system that is capable of reading MP3 and WMA files from CDs or USB sticks connected to the car.

Space is plentiful for all those onboard with the boot more than able to swallow the family’s luggage should you wish to take the MKS on a cross-Emirate drive for the weekend. The MKS rides surprisingly well considering it’s fitted as standard with 20-inch alloy wheels – finished in chrome, naturally.
