Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Corsair than in the Lexus NX 300, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln Corsair will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus NX 300.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus NX 300 as you will with the Lincoln Corsair, 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 NX 300 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln Corsair. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Lexus NX 300 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Lincoln Corsair.

Dimensions
The Lexus NX 300 is about the same width as the Lincoln Corsair. When looking at overall length, the Lexus NX 300 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lincoln Corsair.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Lexus NX 300 will do just as well as the Lincoln Corsair, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Lexus NX 300 has a little less horsepower than the Lincoln Corsair.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Lexus NX 300 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln Corsair.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Lexus NX 300 and the Lincoln Corsair. The Lexus NX 300 has less cargo space than the Lincoln Corsair, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Lexus NX 300 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln Corsair.
