The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Lincoln MKX finally has luxury game with a knockout interior and Mustang-worthy power; MyLincoln Touch is better, too. The 2013 Lexus RX is plush and premium, and it delivers on that luxury impression, but it's not the over-the-top lavish expression some might seek.
