2014 Audi A4 vs. 2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi A4 than in the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, due to the Audi A4's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A4.

Convenience
The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Audi A4, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A4 and the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A4 is much slimmer than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Audi A4 is slightly shorter than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi A4 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid.

Handling
The Audi A4 has about the same turning radius as the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A4 has a much more powerful engine than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A4 and the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid. The Audi A4 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid.

Warranty
The Audi A4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid.
