2015 BMW 328 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 BMW 328, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lincoln MKT, the BMW 328 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The BMW 328 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 328 will have less of an impact on your bank account than 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 BMW 328 will cost more in transportation costs than the Lincoln MKT.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 328 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 BMW 328, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lincoln MKT.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 328 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln MKT.

Handling
The BMW 328 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 BMW 328 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 BMW 328 has less seating than the Lincoln MKT, making the Lincoln MKT the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW 328 has significantly less cargo room than the Lincoln MKT, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The BMW 328 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKT.
