2017 Lexus RX 350 vs. 2016 Lincoln MKX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Lexus RX 350 than the Lincoln MKX. The Lexus RX 350 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lincoln MKX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus RX 350 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 Lexus RX 350 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. The Lexus RX 350 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Lincoln MKX.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus RX 350 is much slimmer than the Lincoln MKX, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Lexus RX 350 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lincoln MKX.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Lexus RX 350 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln MKX.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Lexus RX 350 is clearly the choice over the Lincoln MKX for pulling heavy loads. The Lexus RX 350 has a little less horsepower than the Lincoln MKX.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Lexus RX 350 and the Lincoln MKX. The Lexus RX 350 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Lincoln MKX.

Warranty
The Lexus RX 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKX.
