Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln MKZ than the Jaguar XE, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln MKZ will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XE.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar XE 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). The Jaguar XE is somewhat more expensive than the Lincoln MKZ. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Jaguar XE will cost more in transportation costs than the Lincoln MKZ.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar XE is much wider than the Lincoln MKZ, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jaguar XE, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lincoln MKZ.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Jaguar XE and the Lincoln MKZ do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Jaguar XE has a smaller turning radius than the Lincoln MKZ, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Jaguar XE and the Lincoln MKZ. The Jaguar XE has less cargo capacity than the Lincoln MKZ, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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