Comparison Review

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