Have been eyeballing a Select V6 FWD with the only options being moonroof, 19" rims, and Revel.
Last week I spent some time at my local dealer, drove the V6 and 4 cyl back to back, and tested the Revel vs. the base stereo.
The Revel sounded good. But the pounding and rattling in the driver's side door panel annoyed me to no end. No go on the Revel.
I'm coming out of a 2014 Fusion with the 1.5 turbo engine, so the 2.0 in the MKZ felt strong enough for me.
So I selected a more basic car, a Blue/cappuccino 2.0 FWD Select with moonroof, base rims, Select Plus, and the climate package. I think I'll enjoy the features of these two packages a lot. I was thinking I'd find Apple carplay sufficient in lieu of navigation but I find I like the Sync 3 interface better, so for the time being I've shut off carplay. I think I can still use Siri to reply to texts by voice, and with carplay shut off the Pandora app on Sync appears. I posted a question on the Nav forum asking which nav (Sync vs. Apple) is better for monitoring and circumnavigating traffic.
