2015 Honda Pilot vs. 2014 Lincoln MKX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Pilot offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Lincoln MKX, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda Pilot and the Lincoln MKX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Pilot as you will with the Lincoln MKX, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Pilot will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln MKX. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Honda Pilot and the Lincoln MKX have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Pilot is much wider than the Lincoln MKX, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda Pilot, which is slightly longer than the Lincoln MKX.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Honda Pilot doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln MKX.

Handling
The Honda Pilot has the same turning radius as the Lincoln MKX, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Honda Pilot is clearly the choice over the Lincoln MKX for pulling heavy loads. The Honda Pilot has a little less horsepower than the Lincoln MKX.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Honda Pilot more than the Lincoln MKX, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Honda Pilot, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lincoln MKX.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Pilot is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lincoln MKX.
