2014 Acura RLX vs. 2014 Lincoln MKS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Acura RLX than in the Lincoln MKS, due to the Acura RLX's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Lincoln MKS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura RLX.

Convenience
The Acura RLX will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln MKS, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The Acura RLX is somewhat more expensive than the Lincoln MKS. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura RLX and the Lincoln MKS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Acura RLX is much slimmer than the Lincoln MKS, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Acura RLX is slightly shorter than the Lincoln MKS, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Acura RLX and the Lincoln MKS do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Acura RLX has a larger turning radius than the Lincoln MKS, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura RLX and the Lincoln MKS. The Acura RLX has significantly less cargo room than the Lincoln MKS, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
