Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lincoln MKZ offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volvo S60. The Lincoln MKZ will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lincoln MKZ as you will with the Volvo S60, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lincoln MKZ will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo S60. 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 MKZ and the Volvo S60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lincoln MKZ is about the same width as the Volvo S60. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lincoln MKZ, which is slightly longer than the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Lincoln MKZ doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S60.

Handling
The Lincoln MKZ has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lincoln MKZ is significantly less powerful than the Volvo S60. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lincoln MKZ and the Volvo S60. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Lincoln MKZ will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The Lincoln MKZ comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S60.
