2014 Lincoln MKS vs. 2014 Cadillac XTS Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Lincoln MKS offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Cadillac XTS with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lincoln MKS and the Cadillac XTS in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lincoln MKS as you will with the Cadillac XTS, 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). Based on MSRP, the Lincoln MKS is clearly a better financial choice over the Cadillac XTS. 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 MKS and the Cadillac XTS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lincoln MKS is much wider than the Cadillac XTS, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Lincoln MKS takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Cadillac XTS.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Lincoln MKS transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Cadillac XTS.

Handling
The Lincoln MKS has about the same turning radius as the Cadillac XTS, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Lincoln MKS and the Cadillac XTS.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lincoln MKS and the Cadillac XTS. The Lincoln MKS has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Cadillac XTS.

Warranty
The Lincoln MKS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac XTS.
