2014 BMW 535 vs. 2014 Lincoln MKS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln MKS than the BMW 535, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 535 and the Lincoln MKS in the front seats.

Convenience
The BMW 535 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln MKS, 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 535 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lincoln MKS, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 535 will cost more in transportation costs than the Lincoln MKS.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 535 is much slimmer than the Lincoln MKS, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 535, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lincoln MKS.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 535 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lincoln MKS.

Handling
The BMW 535 has about the same turning radius as the Lincoln MKS, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the BMW 535 and the Lincoln MKS.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 535 and the Lincoln MKS. The BMW 535 has significantly less cargo room than the Lincoln MKS, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The BMW 535 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKS.
