2014 Lincoln MKX vs. 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid than in the Lincoln MKX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Lincoln MKX.

Convenience
The Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln MKX, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lincoln MKX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid. 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 Lincoln MKX and the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lincoln MKX is a little narrower than the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Lincoln MKX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lincoln MKX transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid is clearly the choice over the Lincoln MKX for pulling heavy loads. The Lincoln MKX has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid.

Utility
The Lincoln MKX has less seating than the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid, making the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Lincoln MKX has less cargo space than the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lincoln MKX than that of the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid.
