Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Nautilus than in the Lexus RX 450h, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lexus RX 450h will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lincoln Nautilus.
