2014 Lincoln MKS vs. 2014 BMW 328d 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 Lincoln MKS than the BMW 328d. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lincoln MKS and the BMW 328d in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW 328d you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Lincoln MKS, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Lincoln MKS is somewhat more expensive than the BMW 328d. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lincoln MKS and the BMW 328d have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lincoln MKS is much wider than the BMW 328d, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Lincoln MKS, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW 328d.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Lincoln MKS and the BMW 328d do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Lincoln MKS has a larger turning radius than the BMW 328d, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lincoln MKS has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 328d. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lincoln MKS and the BMW 328d. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Lincoln MKS will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW 328d.

Warranty
The Lincoln MKS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 328d.
