2009 Lincoln MKX vs. Its Competition

2009 Lincoln MKX

The Lexus RX 350 is the bogie for Lincoln, but the RX isn’t that engaging to drive and can be tough to find in crowded mall parking lots.

The 2009 Lincoln MKX is more engaging to drive, but it can't match the level of refinement achieved by the RX 350.

Dynamically, the Acura MDX is a better-handling vehicle than the 2009 Lincoln MKX, as is the rear-wheel-drive Cadillac SRX.

If you put a high value on performance, the SRX and BMW X5 offer optional V-8 engines.
