2014 Chrysler 300C vs. 2014 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 Chrysler 300C than the Lincoln MKZ. The Lincoln MKZ 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 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). The Chrysler 300C 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 Destination Charge for the Chrysler 300C is much higher than that for the Lincoln MKZ.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300C is much wider than the Lincoln MKZ, 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 300C, which is slightly longer than the Lincoln MKZ.

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

Handling
The Chrysler 300C has a larger turning radius than the Lincoln MKZ, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 300C is somewhat more powerful than the Lincoln MKZ.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 300C and the Lincoln MKZ. The Chrysler 300C has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lincoln MKZ.

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