2014 Lincoln MKS vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Lincoln MKS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Convenience

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).

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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Lincoln MKS is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Lincoln MKS and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling

Utility
