2014 Lincoln MKT vs. 2015 Volvo XC70 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 Volvo XC70. The Lincoln MKT will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC70.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lincoln MKT as you will with the Volvo XC70, 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 Lincoln MKT is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo XC70. 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 Volvo XC70 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lincoln MKT is much wider than the Volvo XC70, 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 Volvo XC70.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lincoln MKT doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo XC70.

Handling
The Lincoln MKT has a significantly larger turning radius than the Volvo XC70, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lincoln MKT has less horsepower than the Volvo XC70, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Lincoln MKT offers greater seating capacity than the Volvo XC70, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Lincoln MKT has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volvo XC70.

Warranty
The Lincoln MKT comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC70.
