2015 Lincoln MKZ vs. 2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Avalon Hybrid than the Lincoln MKZ, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln MKZ will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Convenience
With the Toyota Avalon Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Lincoln MKZ, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid, 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. The Lincoln MKZ will cost more in transportation costs than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Lincoln MKZ is a little wider than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Lincoln MKZ does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Handling
The Lincoln MKZ has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lincoln MKZ has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. The Lincoln MKZ has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lincoln MKZ than that of the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.
