2017 Audi A4 vs. 2017 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi A4 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A4 as you will with the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, 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). 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
The Audi A4 is a little narrower than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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.
