2014 Acura TL vs. 2014 Lincoln MKZ Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Acura TL offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lincoln MKZ with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura TL, drivers may find the Lincoln MKZ a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TL as you will with the Lincoln MKZ, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Acura TL is somewhat more expensive than the Lincoln MKZ. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura TL and the Lincoln MKZ have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura TL is about the same width as the Lincoln MKZ. When looking at overall length, the Acura TL takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lincoln MKZ.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura TL doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln MKZ.

Handling
The Acura TL has about the same turning radius as the Lincoln MKZ, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Acura TL has less horsepower than the Lincoln MKZ, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TL and the Lincoln MKZ. The Acura TL has less cargo capacity than the Lincoln MKZ, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Acura TL comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKZ.
