The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Lincoln MKX outdoes the Lexus RX in most respects; although MyLincoln Touch is at times a difficult companion. While the 2014 Lexus RX may not be over-the-top luxurious, it's a plush, lavish crossover that delivers the right premium impression.
