When drivers want a bit more luxury out of their vehicles, they often turn to a Lincoln. The Lincoln Continental and Lincoln MKZ are two of the most high-tech and comfortable sedans on the market, offering more than enough features to make your life easier. The question is, which is a better fit for your drives around the Leesville, New Llano, and Anacoco, areas?

To answer that question, our team at Hixson Lincoln Leesville has brought you this full comparison to help you see what features these cars have to offer. When drivers need a comprehensive car search, Hixson Has It: Has a new culture, new attitude, and an easier way.

Lincoln Continental vs Lincoln MKZ: Dimensions

It's nice to have a car that's got plenty of space to let you and your passengers stretch out. The Lincoln Continental offers drivers a total passenger volume of 106.4 cubic feet. You'll find you won't have quite as much space inside the Lincoln MKZ, though, with its passenger volume of 96.6 cubic feet.

Having a compact vehicle to help you navigate the city is a huge help, too, and the Lincoln MKZ excels at this with its total length of 193.9 inches. The Lincoln Continental is quite long with a total length of 201.4 inches, which might make it more challenging when you need to parallel park. 

Lincoln Continental vs Lincoln MKZ: Engine Power

When it comes to raw performance, the Lincoln Continental and Lincoln MKZ have you covered. Starting with the Lincoln MKZ, we have a standard Turbocharged 2.0L I-4 engine that delivers up to 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque for plenty of power when you hit the gas.

The Lincoln Continental takes standard power a bit further with its standard 3.7L Ti-VCT V6 engine that generates up to 305 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. That extra horsepower will really help you command the highways with confidence.

Overall, though, these vehicles both offer premium performance, especially in their shared available performance engine option. Both of these vehicles can upgrade to a Twin-Turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine that delivers up to 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. Whichever of these cars you choose, you'll be in for a treat when it comes to performance.

Lincoln Continental vs Lincoln MKZ: High-Tech Safety Features

You'll find plenty of features available to you when you drive the Lincoln Continental and Lincoln MKZ. One of the most exciting features aboard these two cars is the available Enhanced Active Park Assist. This feature allows your car to automatically park itself to ensure you can easily fit into more challenging parking spaces.

These cars also both offer an available Adaptive Cruise Control. This feature allows your vehicle to manage your speed for you, so you maintain a safe distance behind cars while driving in cruise control.
