2017 Lincoln MKZ v. Cadillac ATS in the Cleveland area

The Cadillac ATS may tread on the reputation of its name, but when you look at them side by side, it falls short of the 2017 Lincoln MKZ in quite a few crucial ways, like interior comfort, convenience options, and safety offerings.

  • The 2017 Lincoln MKZ offers you and your passengers more space for your selves, with more front leg room, front shoulder room, front hip room, second-row leg room, second-row shoulder room, and second-row hip room than what's available in the Cadillac ATS, with the Lincoln MKZ coming in with a greater overall passenger volume than the Cadillac ATC.
  • Your vehicle is about more than just getting from point A to point B, which is why the 2017 Lincoln MKZ's superior offering of convenience features is so important. While the Cadillac ATS gives you the option of paying extra for heated/cooled seats, which is a feature you can enjoy standard on the 2017 Lincoln MKZ. Additionally, when you plant yourself in the driver's seat, you'll be sitting on leather upholstery in the Lincoln MKZ, but you'll have to settle for leatherette on the Cadillac ATS. And if you're looking for a little assistance with parking, you'll find that standard in the Lincoln MKZ, but not the Cadillac ATS.
  • Riding in refined luxury is only great if everyone arrives to the destination safely, which is why we want to emphasize the 2017 Lincoln MKZ's robust safety offering that puts the Cadillac ATS's standard offering to shame. The 2017 Lincoln MKZ gives you driver assistance features, such as standard Brake Assist and available Blind Spot Monitor, available Lane Departure Warning, available Cross-Traffic Alert, and available Lane Keeping Assist systems, all of which aren't offered on the Cadillac ATS.

2017 Lincoln MKZ v. Lexus ES350 in Mayfield Heights, Cleveland, Euclid, Solon, and Beachwood

The Lexus ES350 is a vehicle hailing from a strong lineage, but it's no match for the 2017 Lincoln MKZ, which outpaces it in terms of price, efficiency, and standard features.

  • The 2017 Lincoln MKZ features a lower starting MSRP of $35,190, compared to the Lexus ES350's starting price of $38,100.
  • The 2017 Lincoln MKZ bests the Lexus ES350 in terms of fuel efficiency, coming in with an EPA-estimated combined fuel economy of 26 mpg, compared to the Lexus ES350's EPA-estimated combined fuel economy of 24 mpg. When you consider this in conjunction with the MKZ's lower starting price, the true value starts to become pretty apparent.
  • So the price is right and the fuel economy is preferable, but it's important that you're getting a good bang for your buck, too. In the 2017 Lincoln MKZ, that's never a worry. It gives you some awesome standard features that you'll have to pay a pretty penny for in the Lexus ES350, features like heated front and rear seats (only heated front seats are an option in the Lexus ES350), and if you'd like, you can option up the Lincoln MKZ's seats to include seat massage, a feature not available at all in the Lexus ES350. You'll also enjoy standard navigation, parking assistance, and leather upholstery in the 2017 Lincoln MKZ-all of which you can choose to pay extra for in the Lexus ES350.
