2014 Lexus GS 350 vs. 2014 Lincoln MKS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln MKS than the Lexus GS 350, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus GS 350, drivers may find the Lincoln MKS a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus GS 350 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). The Lexus GS 350 is somewhat more expensive than the Lincoln MKS. 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 GS 350 and the Lincoln MKS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus GS 350 is much slimmer than the Lincoln MKS, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Lexus GS 350, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lincoln MKS.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Lexus GS 350 and the Lincoln MKS do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Lexus GS 350 has a smaller turning radius than the Lincoln MKS, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Lexus GS 350 and the Lincoln MKS.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus GS 350 and the Lincoln MKS. The Lexus GS 350 has significantly less cargo room than the Lincoln MKS, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Lexus GS 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKS.
