2014 BMW 328d vs. 2014 Lincoln MKZ Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 328d offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lincoln MKZ with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 328d and the Lincoln MKZ in the front seats.

Convenience
The BMW 328d will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln MKZ, 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). The BMW 328d is somewhat more expensive than the Lincoln MKZ. 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 MKZ.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 328d is much slimmer than the Lincoln MKZ, 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 MKZ.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 328d transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lincoln MKZ.

Handling
The BMW 328d has a smaller turning radius than the Lincoln MKZ, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 328d is significantly less powerful than the Lincoln MKZ. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 328d and the Lincoln MKZ. The BMW 328d has less cargo capacity than the Lincoln MKZ, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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