Comparing Head-to-Head: the 2017 Lincoln MKZ VS the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class refers to a group of vehicles, so for the purpose of this comparison, we're going to focus on the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 Sedan, though it should be noted there coupe and cabriolet configurations for the C-Class models as well. Now, let's dive a bit deeper:

  • When it comes to an executive sedan, the Lincoln MKZ starts you off right: a standard WiFi Hotspot makes for a workspace on wheels in the 2017 MKZ, but you won't find it in the Mercedes-Benz C300 Sedan unless you're ready to pay a pretty penny extra for it.
  • Any luxury sedan should be comfortable, unreasonably so, even, which is why the 2017 Lincoln MKZ offers you a total passenger volume of 96.5 cubic-feet and seating for five; the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 Sedan also gives you seating for five, but it'll ask you to fit all five of you into a paltry 88.2 cubic-feet of passenger volume.
  • When you have a luxury sedan, you'll probably want to keep it well protected, but if you're driving the 2017 Lincoln MKZ, you can let Lincoln handle some of that care, thanks to a robust 6-year/70,000-mile drivetrain warranty and Roadside Assistance for unlimited years and unlimited miles; sure, Mercedes-Benz will give you a drivetrain warranty and roadside assistance, but you'll only see 4 years/50,000 miles in the drivetrain warranty and 4 years/50,000 miles of roadside assistance. By contrast, even if you drive over that 50,000th mile, Lincoln won't hang you out to dry. Mercedes-Benz? Hard to say.
