The Lincoln Nautilus is a good choice for those who do not seek a sporty SUV. It costs less than a number of rivals in the luxury midsize SUV segment.
The model’s benefits include above-average fuel economy, enough power for most driving situations, smooth riding; a handsome interior, a lot of space for cargo and passengers, many easy-to-use tech features.
But it has more athletic and fun-to-drive competitors, such as the Audi Q7, Mercedes-Benz GLE or the Cadillac XT5.
