Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Continental than the Lexus LS 500, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln Continental will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus LS 500.

Convenience
The Lexus LS 500 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln Continental, 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 Lexus LS 500 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lincoln Continental, which has a much lower MSRP.

The Lexus LS 500 and the Lincoln Continental have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
