Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln MKZ than the Cadillac CT4, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CT4, drivers may find the Lincoln MKZ a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CT4 as you will with the Lincoln MKZ, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Whether you pick the Cadillac CT4 or the Lincoln MKZ, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Cadillac CT4 and the Lincoln MKZ have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac CT4 is much slimmer than the Lincoln MKZ, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Cadillac CT4 is slightly shorter than the Lincoln MKZ, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Cadillac CT4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln MKZ.

Performance
The Cadillac CT4 has less horsepower than the Lincoln MKZ, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CT4 and the Lincoln MKZ. The Cadillac CT4 has significantly less cargo room than the Lincoln MKZ, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Cadillac CT4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKZ.
