2016 Lincoln MKS vs. 2017 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. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lincoln MKS, drivers may find the Mercedes-Benz C-Class a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

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). Based on MSRP, the Lincoln MKS is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. 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.

Dimensions
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
The Lincoln MKS has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lincoln MKS has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lincoln MKS is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. 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 Lincoln MKS and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Lincoln MKS will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
The Lincoln MKS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
