At Sanderson Lincoln, we know that car buying can be a time-consuming and stressful experience and we’d like to help you choose the right vehicle for your needs. It’s important to do the research, especially when trying to decide between cars like the Lincoln MKZ and the Mercedes C Class.
Take a look at these important points before making your choice.
When it comes to interior comfort, the backseat of the Lincoln MKZ offers passengers a great deal more room than the Mercedes C Class. The Mercedes has less headroom and less legroom than the Lincoln, so the backseat of the Mercedes may not seat adults comfortably.
The Lincoln also has more front headroom and legroom than the Mercedes, so it’s a great choice for taller drivers.
There is significantly less cargo room in the Mercedes, so those that shop a lot or plan to travel in their vehicle will want to look to the Lincoln MKZ.
Both of these cars get similar gas mileage, with the Lincoln coming out just a little ahead. The MKZ gets 18 miles per gallon in the city, and 27 miles per gallon on the highway, and the Mercedes C Class gets 18 miles per gallon in the city, too, but 26 miles per gallon on the highway.
When it comes to the base price, Mercedes C Class definitely starts at a higher MSRP than the Lincoln MKZ. The Mercedes starts at $38,400 while the Lincoln starts at $35,190. Of course, special features will change the prices of both models, but the Lincoln remains the better deal.
When it comes to size, the Mercedes Benz C Class is slimmer than the Lincoln MKZ, which features a wider, more athletic stance.
Power and Handling
The Mercedes C Class comes with a standard turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. The Lincoln MKZ has a standard EcoBoost 2.0L 4-cyclinder engine. The Mercedes offers drivers the ability to modify steering response and transmission. The 2016 Lincoln MKZ also offers drivers a variety of driving dynamics, such as continuously controlled dampening, electric power-assisted steering, and active noise control.
Both the Mercedes Benz C Class and the Lincoln MKZ come with essentially the same basic warranty of four years or 50,000 miles.
