2014 Lincoln MKZ vs. 2015 Cadillac CTS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lincoln MKZ offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Cadillac CTS with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lincoln MKZ.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lincoln MKZ as you will with the Cadillac CTS, 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). Based on MSRP, the Lincoln MKZ is clearly a better financial choice over the Cadillac CTS. 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 MKZ carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Cadillac CTS.

Dimensions
The Lincoln MKZ is a little wider than the Cadillac CTS, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Lincoln MKZ takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Cadillac CTS.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lincoln MKZ doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Cadillac CTS.

Handling
The Lincoln MKZ has a larger turning radius than the Cadillac CTS, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lincoln MKZ is somewhat more powerful than the Cadillac CTS.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lincoln MKZ and the Cadillac CTS. The Lincoln MKZ has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Cadillac CTS.

Warranty
The Lincoln MKZ comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CTS.
