Distance between two sides of a vehicle directly affects the amount of space for passengers as well as stability while driving. The width of the Lincoln Town Car II 4.6 210HP is larger only by 13 % than the BMW 5-Series E34 M5 Sedan and is not really worth considering. The average for the „upper middle” segment amounts to around 1,826 millimeters and is by 156 millimeters larger than the same feature of the Lincoln Town Car II.
Lincoln Town Car II has 216 mm longer wheelbase than the BMW 5-Series E34 M5 Sedan 3.8 340HP manual. A longer wheelbase provides more stable and comfortable ride, especially when driving fast. It also provides more storage space. However, vehicles with a longer wheelbase are not as maneuverable as those with a shorter wheelbase.
The Lincoln Town Car II is 18 percent longer in comparison to the BMW. Long vehicles more of passenger space and in most cases have more storage space. Although the Lincoln Town Car II seems to be better option for families or persons who love the idea of convenient rides, the BMW 5-Series E34 may be more appropriate to singles as it will not make problems with parking and will be easier for turning in narrow streets.
Model release date
Because of the fact that the BMW 5-Series E34 M5 Sedan's production began only 2 years prior to the Lincoln, the distance in technology applied in both cars is not really big, however, the Lincoln Town Car II may feature slightly more advanced solutions used in it.
If you are a tall driver or you carry in the trunk stuffs of large dimensions, the Lincoln Town Car II, which is by 58 millimeters higher than the BMW 5-Series E34 M5 Sedan 3.8 340HP manual, is better option for you. However, these two cars do not differ much it the aspect of its height and it should not be much noticeable.
