2022 Lincoln Nautilus vs. Its Competition

2022 Lincoln Nautilus
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Lincoln Nautilus faces stiff competition from luxury rivals from around the world.

The German trio—Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class—excels for quality and technology.

Each can be configured in high-performance spec, too.

The Cadillac XT5 also has front-wheel-drive roots and a more angular design, but misses out on the interior warmth.

The Lexus RX is closest in size and mission as it focuses on luxury over sportiness.
