Re:sport, normal and comfort option settings.

We're waiting for the first 2013 MKZ hybrid to arrive at any nearby dealership (so far,none within 250 miles of home).

DW has test driven many brands.Her top selection is the Volvo.She really likes how it handles.The Volvo is a great car,but I'd prefer her to get the MKZ & I am hoping to optimize her MKZ test drive so she'll be more inclined to pick it.I'm paying,but she'll have final say on the brand she selects.I plan on asking the sales-rep to set the drivers' seat as high as possible for viewing over the hood before she gets there.

Now regarding the question on the Lincoln drive settings & how the low HP engine performs:

First-
When pulling out onto a highway,will having the drive set to 'Sport' get the car to 60mph any faster?(Don't care about speeds faster than that.)

Second-
When in a parking lot & pulling/steering into a space between two cars,will the 'Sport' mode give tighter control?

Thanks for your input.
