2013 Lincoln MKX vs. Its Competition

Infotainment and connectivity are the new battleground in luxury vehicles, and no crossover fields as much content as the 2013 Lincoln MKX.

The battle is drawing closer, though: the 2013 SRX gets CUE, Cadillac's touchscreen system that uses iPad-like touch and voice controls in the same way as MyLincoln Touch.

Lexus' Remote Touch mouse controller runs functions on most versions of the RX 350; unlike its competitors, the Lexus also comes in hybrid trim, though fuel-economy benefits are debatable.

For those who still care about ruggedness, the redesigned Volkswagen Touareg still boasts decent off-road ability.

Finally, the Volvo XC60 has a serene cabin and lovely styling, as well as class-leading safety technology and crash-test scores, but infotainment systems and gas mileage that lag the category.
