Explore What Sets the Lincoln MKZ Apart from the BMW 3 Series

There are certainly a lot of European luxury vehicles on the market and the roads of the greater Westlake, OH roads these days. At Nick Mayer Lincoln, we pride ourselves on offering a spectacular selection of new Lincoln models that inspire a different splendor. Bred by the constant surge into newer technology and performance, the 2017 Lincoln MKZ pays a nostalgic homage to the Lincoln Continental of yore with its new front end grille. This year's iteration adds more capability to the midsize luxury sedan than ever before, putting it in prime position to stand up to the popular BMW 3 Series. Let's take a look at what the Lincoln MKZ does to successfully pull away from the pack:

The 2017 Lincoln MKZ vs the 2017 BMW 3 Series

  • The starting price for the BMW 3 Series is $33,450, slightly lower than the $35,170 of the Lincoln MKZ - but only offers a minimal 180-horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque compared to the Lincoln MKZ's 245-horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. Jumping to the $38,750 range for a BMW 330i will barely edge out the base 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine of the Lincoln MKZ.
  • Only in the Lincoln MKZ will you find the delightfully strong 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, which packs 400-horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque in all-wheel drive. Those looking for a similar option from BMW have to settle with only 320-horsepower and a much higher $47,900 price tag.
  • The standard 8-inch display and voice-recognition capabilities of the SYNC® 3 system is unmatched by the 6.5-inch LCD display of the BMW 3 Series, and utilizes an impressive 11-speaker sound system that stands out from the 9-speaker configuration of the 3 Series.
  • The available THX® II Certified 14-Speaker Sound System, Panoramic Moonroof, Active Park Assist and Lane-Keeping Assist sprinkle the Lincoln MKZ with a intensified opulence, and finding similar features in a BMW 3 Series will only raise the price tag further.
