2016 Buick LaCrosse vs. 2016 Lincoln MKZ Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick LaCrosse than the Lincoln MKZ. The Lincoln MKZ will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick LaCrosse.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick LaCrosse as you will with the Lincoln MKZ, 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 Buick LaCrosse will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Buick LaCrosse and the Lincoln MKZ have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick LaCrosse is about the same width as the Lincoln MKZ. When looking at overall length, the Buick LaCrosse takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lincoln MKZ.

Drivetrain
The Buick LaCrosse has much less torque than the Lincoln MKZ, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Buick LaCrosse has about the same turning radius as the Lincoln MKZ, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Buick LaCrosse and the Lincoln MKZ.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick LaCrosse and the Lincoln MKZ. The Buick LaCrosse 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 Buick LaCrosse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKZ.
