2014 Acura TSX vs. 2014 Lincoln MKT Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln MKT than the Acura TSX, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura TSX, drivers may find the Lincoln MKT a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Acura TSX will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln MKT, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the Acura TSX is clearly a better financial choice over the Lincoln MKT. 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 TSX and the Lincoln MKT have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Acura TSX is much slimmer than the Lincoln MKT, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Acura TSX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lincoln MKT.

Drivetrain
The Acura TSX has much less torque than the Lincoln MKT, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura TSX has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Lincoln MKT, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TSX is significantly less powerful than the Lincoln MKT. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Acura TSX has less seating than the Lincoln MKT, making the Lincoln MKT the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Acura TSX has less cargo capacity than the Lincoln MKT, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Acura TSX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKT.
