Comparison Review

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

Convenience

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 Lincoln Continental is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lincoln Continental and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Lincoln Continental does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
