2018 Lincoln MKZ vs Mercedes-Benz E-Class

When you pit two luxury sedans against each other, like the 2018 Lincoln MKZ and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, only one can come out on top. To help luxury vehicle drivers in Chalfont, Philadelphia, Warminster, Feasterville, and Trevose decide between these two impressive vehicles, we at Fred Beans Lincoln have put together this helpful comparison. Read ahead to see which is a better fit for you!

Lincoln MKZ vs E-Class: Performance

The 2018 Lincoln MKZ offers three impressive engines in its powertrain lineup starting with the standard turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. For a boost in efficiency, you can opt for the available 2.0L Atkinson Hybrid Powertrain, which delivers an incredible EPA-estimated 38 highway/41 city MPG1.

If power is your top priority, the Lincoln MKZ's third engine option has just what you need. This Twin-Turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine puts out an unbelievable 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque for a ride that inspires both confidence and excitement.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, on the other hand, also offers a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and a standard automatic transmission. However, this is the only engine available in this model. This means you'll max out at 241 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 30 highway/22 city MPG.

Lincoln MKZ vs E-Class: Convenience

Convenience is important no matter where you're heading. Luckily, with the 2018 Lincoln MKZ and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, you'll have plenty of convenience features on your side including standard dual-zone automatic climate control systems, remote start systems, steering-wheel mounted control buttons, and available rain-sensing windshield wipers.

However, the Lincoln MKZ goes a step further by including a few additional convenience features like the standard Reverse Sensing System. Take the stress out of backing up and parking knowing this feature will give you a heads up when there's something behind you.

Lincoln MKZ vs E-Class: Entertainment

As luxury sedans, the 2018 Lincoln MKZ and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class offer up some of the most highly sought-after entertainment features on the market today. For instance, the Lincoln MKZ comes standardly equipped with the advanced SYNC® 3 infotainment system featuring a touchscreen display, voice command recognition, smartphone integration via AppLink®, and even a WiFi™ hotspot.

This infotainment system standardly pairs with the Lincoln Premium Audio System with 11 speakers. Upgrade your sound system to the Revel® Ultima Audio System which comes with a whopping 20 speakers for an enveloping concert-like experience.

As for the E-Class, you'll also get a standard infotainment system with a touchscreen, Bluetooth® connectability, and smartphone integration. What you won't get, however, is a standard sound system that compares with the Lincoln MKZ's.

2018 Lincoln MKZ vs 2018 Mercedes E-Class: The Verdict

As you can see, we have a clear winner. While the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has some great features, the 2018 Lincoln MKZ has the whole package. Shoppers in Chalfont, Philadelphia, Warminster, Feasterville, and Trevose should come by Fred Beans Lincoln today to get behind the wheel and see the MKZ can do!
