2017 Lexus ES 350 vs. 2017 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 Lexus ES 350 than the Lincoln MKZ. The Lincoln MKZ will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 350.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus ES 350 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus ES 350 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Lexus ES 350 will cost more in transportation costs than the Lincoln MKZ.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus ES 350 is much slimmer than the Lincoln MKZ, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Lexus ES 350 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lincoln MKZ.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lexus ES 350 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln MKZ.

Handling
The Lexus ES 350 has about the same turning radius as the Lincoln MKZ, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus ES 350 is significantly less powerful than the Lincoln MKZ. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus ES 350 and the Lincoln MKZ. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Lexus ES 350 as you will in the Lincoln MKZ.

Warranty
The Lexus ES 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKZ.
