Finding a superb luxury crossover SUV at your favorite Lincoln dealership near Dahlonega, GA has never been easier than it is with the 2016 Lincoln MKX in the mix. Comparing the highest of standards that Lincoln has with other automakers' idea of luxury is almost comical. No other luxury crossover can match the pure elegance and class of the 2016 Lincoln MKX, not even the 2016 Lexus RX.


Starting with the exterior, it's clear that the Lexus has all but done away with subtlety and decided to open with screaming sharp edges and a look that is more befitting of a cameo in Mad Max than on a luxury crossover. On the other hand, the 2016 Lincoln MKX doesn't need to scream at you to garner attention. Its soft curves and graceful lines tell you its true nature and makes a statement about the class you both will bring to each other. The twenty-inch wheels on the Lincoln versus the eighteen-inch wheels on the Lexus speak volumes about the confidence of the car itself. The Lexus scurries close to the ground, hanging its head while the Lincoln stands proudly above it all, holding you in high esteem.


Looking to the interiors of both vehicles, you'll see the differences immediately. The Lexus comes standard with a drab tan interior that looks like it would be en vogue decades ago rather than coupled with the garish body it has. The 2016 Lincoln MKX, rather, goes for a more unified look, extending its modesty to the interior of the crossover and providing each driver with their choice of theme. Unlike the Lexus, all of the Lincoln's themes include real leather rather than synthetic. Unlike the Lexus, all of the interior designs were made specifically with perfectly contrasting or interplaying complementary colors and shapes in mind. The Lexus' design simply falls flat.


The engine on the Lexus RX is just as uninteresting as the interior. The 2016 Lincoln MKX clocks a faster time getting from zero to sixty by nearly two full seconds. That's because of the superior V-6 engine inside the Lincoln. It's capable of putting out 335 horsepower and 380 foot-pounds of torque whereas the Lexus doddles behind at a measly 295 horsepower and 268 foot-pounds of torque.


Let's not forget the hallmark of the 2016 Lincoln MKX, the sound system. The booming force and refined tones of every one of its nineteen speakers is head and shoulders above the meandering and lackluster "sounds" put forth by the Lexus RX's dismal system.


It's absolutely clear that if you want a true luxury crossover SUV, the gold standard is the 2016 Lincoln MKX. Don't make the poor decision; go see Jacky Jones Lincoln near Dahlonega, GA today.
