2017 Lincoln MKZ vs Audi A4


The 2017 Lincoln MKZ Stares Down the Competition at Nick Mayer Lincoln Mayfield

The 2017 Lincoln MKZ in Brief:

The 2017 Lincoln MKZ offers luxury-minded drivers four decidedly sumptuous trim levels to sate their most urbane desires:

  • Premiere trim-Available as a front- or all-wheel drive (AWD) configurations, the premiere level starts you off with everything you need to feel at home in a luxury sedan: heated front seats, SYNC® 3, Lincoln Premium Audio System, and standard safety features like a Reverse Sensing System, Individual Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and SOS Post-Crash Alert System™. Each trim level builds on the next, too, so when you step up to the next trim, your offering only grows in size and opulence.
  • Select trim-As you move up, the addition of leather-trimmed seats adds to the sense of luxury in the cabin, while genuine wood steering wheel, door, and instrument panel trim invokes a sense of richness for the senses.
  • Reserve trim-This trim steps it up-literally-to 19-inch 20-Spoke Aluminum Wheels with Full Center Ornament, while the inside sees the luxury treatment, too; heated seats turn into heated and cooled front seats with a perforated leather trim, while features like BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and an onboard embedded modem move from available to standard.
  • Lincoln Black Label trim-The Lincoln Black Label Edition is a special Lincoln trim, with three interior treatments that offer a themed expression of luxury, and drivers get some special treatment with this trim level, like in-home consultation, car washes, and concierge service.
So now you're familiar with the trims of the 2017 Lincoln MKZ, it's time to see how it fares against some tough competition. We hope drivers from Mayfield Heights, Cleveland, Kent, Mentor, and Middleburg Heights enjoy this quick comparison between the Lincoln MKZ and the Audi A4-let the battle of the luxury sedans begin!

The Showdown: 2017 Lincoln MKZ VS 2017 Audi A4

  • If power is important to you, the 2017 Audi A4 might leave you wanting for more. Its most powerful engine is rated at 252 horsepower, while the 2017 Lincoln MKZ offers an available engine rated at 400 horsepower! Not interested in optioning up? The 2017 Lincoln MKZ's base engine is still going to give you a hearty 240 horsepower, while the Audi A4's entry engine offers a paltry 190 horsepower in comparison. 
  • Comfort is important in a luxury driving experience, and if you and your passengers are interested in a comfortably drive, you might want to skip the Audi A4, unless a tight fit is what you like. The 2017 A4's passenger space and cargo room don't quite measure up to what you'll find in the 2017 Lincoln MKZ, despite the fact that each offers seating for five. The Audi A4 sees a max cargo volume of 13 cubic-feet, while the Lincoln MKZ sees 15.4 cubic-feet of cargo room. In terms of passenger space and comfort, the A4 offers 41.3 inches of front leg room, while the Lincoln MKZ lets you stretch out with 44.3 inches; second-row leg room is also affected, with the A4 giving you 35.7 inches while the Lincoln MKZ opens things up with a full 37 inches; front shoulder room also runs along the split, with the A4 giving you 55.9 inches while the Lincoln MKZ treats you right with 57.7 inches.
