Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Charger 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 Dodge Charger.

Convenience
The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Dodge Charger, 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 Dodge Charger 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 Dodge Charger will cost more in transportation costs than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid.

Since the Dodge Charger 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.

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