2017 Lincoln MKZ vs. 2016 Volkswagen CC Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Volkswagen CC 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). The Lincoln MKZ is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen CC. 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 Volkswagen CC.

Dimensions
The Lincoln MKZ is about the same width as the Volkswagen CC. 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 Volkswagen CC.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Lincoln MKZ transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volkswagen CC.

Handling
The Lincoln MKZ has about the same turning radius as the Volkswagen CC, 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 Volkswagen CC. 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 Volkswagen CC. The Lincoln MKZ has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volkswagen CC.

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