2014 Chrysler 300 vs. 2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid 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 Chrysler 300 than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid. The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chrysler 300.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chrysler 300 as you will with the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, 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). The Chrysler 300 is somewhat more expensive than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chrysler 300 is much higher than that for the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chrysler 300, which is slightly longer than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chrysler 300 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid.
