Comparison Review

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).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built.
