2014 BMW 328d 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 328d, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lincoln MKT, the BMW 328d may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the BMW 328d you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lincoln MKT, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). Whether you pick the BMW 328d or the Lincoln MKT, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 328d will cost more in transportation costs than the Lincoln MKT.

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

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW 328d and the Lincoln MKT do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The BMW 328d 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 328d 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 328d has less seating than the Lincoln MKT, making the Lincoln MKT the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW 328d 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 328d comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKT.
