2017 Lexus RX 350 features interior space optimized for five passengers, with significantly more leg room for rear passengers.

Lexus had no choice but to address noteworthy shortcomings for the RX 350 that include very cramped rear leg room. And it's Lincoln MKX thatdelivers the following advantages over RX 350:

  • Rear leg room (+1.6 inches)
  • Front head room (+0.5 inches)
  • Front shoulder room (+1.1 inches)
  • Rear shoulder room (+1.4 inches)

"While it's true that the redesign does address a number of notable inadequacies for the RX 350, it still falls short of Lincoln MKX in terms of interior space. For example, Lincoln MKX delivers nearly two inches more rear leg room than RX 350. It also provides more head room and more shoulder room. If you're looking for a roomy vehicle, look no further than Lincoln MKX."

"To truly experience performance, I urge you to test-drive the 2.7L GTDI in Lincoln MKX. With its 335 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque,(2) I'm sure you'll agree it handily outperforms the 3.0L V6 in the BMW X5 35i. Unlike the BMW engine, the available 2.7L GTDI can also operate on regular fuel, making it a better value, as well."
