Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Lexus RX 350 than the Lincoln Nautilus. 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 Nautilus.

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 Nautilus, 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). Whether you pick the Lexus RX 350 or the Lincoln Nautilus, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Lexus RX 350 and the Lincoln Nautilus have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus RX 350 is much slimmer than the Lincoln Nautilus, 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 Nautilus.

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 Nautilus.

Handling
The Lexus RX 350 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lincoln Nautilus, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

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 Nautilus. The Lexus RX 350 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Lincoln Nautilus.
