2015 Kia Sorento vs. 2015 Lincoln MKC Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the Lincoln MKC. The Lincoln MKC will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Sorento.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sorento as you will with the Lincoln MKC, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a 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 Kia Sorento will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln MKC. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Kia Sorento and the Lincoln MKC have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Kia Sorento is a little wider than the Lincoln MKC, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Kia Sorento, which is slightly longer than the Lincoln MKC.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Kia Sorento doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln MKC.

Handling
The Kia Sorento has a smaller turning radius than the Lincoln MKC, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Lincoln MKC for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Kia Sorento and the Lincoln MKC.

Utility
The Kia Sorento offers greater seating capacity than the Lincoln MKC, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Kia Sorento, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lincoln MKC.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Sorento than that of the Lincoln MKC.
