2017 Lincoln MKZ vs. 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lincoln MKZ offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lincoln MKZ and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Lincoln MKZ, 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). Whether you pick the Lincoln MKZ or the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Lincoln MKZ will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Lincoln MKZ is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lincoln MKZ, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

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

Handling
The Lincoln MKZ 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 MKZ has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

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