Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW M340 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW M340, drivers may find the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW M340, 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 BMW M340 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW M340 and the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M340 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid.

Handling
The BMW M340 has about the same turning radius as the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.
