2015 Lincoln MKZ vs. 2015 Volvo S60 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln MKZ than the Volvo S60. The Lincoln MKZ will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S60.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lincoln MKZ will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo S60. 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 and the Volvo S60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lincoln MKZ is about the same width as the Volvo S60. If you go with the Lincoln MKZ, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lincoln MKZ doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S60.

Handling
The Lincoln MKZ has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Lincoln MKZ and the Volvo S60.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lincoln MKZ and the Volvo S60. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Lincoln MKZ will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The Lincoln MKZ comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S60.
