Test Drive | Lincoln Zephyr: China’s Sleek Sedan Revival.

By Mark Andrews

Car News China.

Currently, the only place in the world you can buy a new Lincoln sedan is China, after the brand killed off production of the Continental in the US.

A replacement for the discontinued MKZ the Zephyr resurrects a name last used on the 2006 model year MKZ. Curiously in Chinese, the car is simply referred to as the Lincoln Z – hence the name plates on our test car!

Lincoln is a late comer to the Chinese market having only officially been on sale since 2014. However, the brand was actually already quite well known in China thanks to grey market imports of Lincoln Town Car limousines for use as wedding cars and even some Hongqi models in the 90s and early 00s being based on the second and third generation Town Car.
