A decent little comparison between the Kia Cadenza and Lincoln MKZ. The reviewer compares three factors to see which car is better. Both are gorgeous cars IMO. I don't think you can really go wrong either way.

Luxury seekers often look at three important factors; factors that often separate the luxury brands from the rest of the crowd.

Infotainment: Luxury brands are expected to be comfortable and convenient, with an easy-to-use system that makes driving both fun and easy. Kia is already known for having excellent infotainment features, and the Cadenza is loaded with systems like the harmonious UVO eServices. The 2013 Lincoln MKZ, however, has been criticized for a clunky, confusing infotainment system.

Luxury Features: Kia has put all the bells and whistles in to the Cadenza, and it has many features that the Lincoln MKZ lacks. For example, the 2014 Cadenza has power-folding mirrors and fog-lamps standard, while both are unavailable of the 2013 MKZ. Also, the Cadenza has standard rain-sensing wipers, while MKZ buyers will need to pay more for that option.

Spaciousness: Once again, the Kia Cadenza simply has more. According to US News Ranking and Reviews, the Cadenza has 40 inches of front headroom, while the Lincoln MKZ has less than 38. It also has better headroom for rear passengers, and a larger truck.

...some people would criticize the MKZ grille, as they would the Cadenza. But I would give the nod to the Cadenza, for the grille and for nearly every other feature.

I actually test drove both of these within a few days of each other. After seeing the Cadenza, the (what I guess is supposed to be) futuristic interior of the MKZ looked stark and, I'm sorry, cheap by comparison although obviously that wasn't the intent. I didn't like the swipe controls either. Leave that for the smartphones... too cutesy for a car.
