Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 740 than the Lincoln Continental. The Lincoln Continental will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 740.

Convenience
