Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Continental than the Acura RLX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln Continental will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura RLX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura RLX as you will with the Lincoln Continental, as they get the same number of miles per 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 Acura RLX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln Continental. 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 Continental have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura RLX is a little narrower than the Lincoln Continental, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Acura RLX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lincoln Continental.

Drivetrain
The Acura RLX has much less torque than the Lincoln Continental, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura RLX has a smaller turning radius than the Lincoln Continental, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Acura RLX has less horsepower than the Lincoln Continental, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura RLX and the Lincoln Continental. The Acura RLX has less cargo capacity than the Lincoln Continental, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Acura RLX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln Continental.
