2015 Chrysler 300C vs. 2015 Lincoln MKS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chrysler 300C offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lincoln MKS with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Lincoln MKS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chrysler 300C.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chrysler 300C as you will with the Lincoln MKS, 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). Whether you pick the Chrysler 300C or the Lincoln MKS, 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 Chrysler 300C will cost more in transportation costs than the Lincoln MKS.

Dimensions
The Chrysler 300C is a little narrower than the Lincoln MKS, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Chrysler 300C is slightly shorter than the Lincoln MKS, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Chrysler 300C doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln MKS.

Handling
The Chrysler 300C has about the same turning radius as the Lincoln MKS, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chrysler 300C has less horsepower than the Lincoln MKS, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 300C and the Lincoln MKS. The Chrysler 300C has less cargo capacity than the Lincoln MKS, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chrysler 300C is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lincoln MKS.
