MKZ Zephyr Coupe—How about making the entry-level Lincoln MKZ a full model range, with sedan, coupe and crossover wagon? Let it fully bracket the 3 series/A4/9-3 market segment. The hatchback coupe would bring utility and sportiness to the line. There would be base, Hybrid and Zephyr top-of-the-line models.
Changes to the MKZ sedan include pushing the front wheels forward about four inches and lowering the roof two inches. I changed the C pillar to more of a fastback, to give the hatchback more utility as well as giving it a distinct look from the sedan. I also moved the keypad from just above the door handles, to a vertical position on the B pillar. The taillights were "frosted" and would be all LEDs.
