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

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Lincoln MKT, making it more convenient to drive.

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 MKT is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz E-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 MKT and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Lincoln MKT is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Lincoln MKT, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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

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