Compare the 2020 Lincoln Nautilus vs Lexus UX

2020 Lincoln Nautilus Comparison
Lincoln SUVs are highly regarded as exhilarating to drive, distinctively styled, and a cockpit with advanced tech to impress, and the 2020 Lincoln Nautilus is no exception. As a leader in the midsize luxury crossover SUV segment, the Lincoln Nautilus offers immense value, but how does it stack up with a competitor like the Lexus UX?

Let’s see how the 2020 Lexus UX and Lincoln Nautilus compare, courtesy of your local Lincoln dealer in Dutton, Cotrac Lincoln.


The Lexus UX has a sporty, athletic appearance with its recognizable hourglass-style grille and black textured wheel arches and sills. Its silhouette resembles a five-door wagon with a low-slung stance. LED taillights and blade headlights add striking flair to the Lexus UX’s outside appearance.

The 2020 Lincoln Nautilus is a different breed. The design takes a classier approach with Lincoln’s iconic chrome grille design and bright accents all around. An available hands-free liftgate, LED headlights and elegant welcome mat logos add a top-tier touch. All exterior lighting is LED on the Nautilus, and available adaptive lighting lends even more safety to this luxury SUV.


In the Lexus UX, comfortable seating for five on NuLuxe seats with heated and ventilated front seats are standard. Smartphone connectivity, six-speaker audio, and a 7-inch display are included on both trims, as is dual-zone automatic climate control and a moonroof. And for F-Sport models, a blazing red interior comes standard.

Inside the Lincoln Nautilus, expect quiet confidence, as well as a quiet ride. Unique wood trim and leather-trimmed seats are available, as are heated and ventilated front seats with memory settings. Front seats also offer Active Motion for better adjustability and massage to keep tired muscles at bay. Lincoln’s panoramic Vista Roof is also available with a power sunshade, not to mention an available 13-speaker Revel Audio system and a 19-speaker Revel Ultima Audio system controlled SYNC 3 technology.


Under the hood of the Lexus UX, you’ll find either a 168-hp 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with a CVT transmission or a 181-hp 2.0L 4-cylinder with a hybrid-electric motor to improve fuel efficiency. With the hybrid model, all-wheel-drive is included.

Performance never suffers from the 2020 Lincoln Nautilus. The standard engine is a 250-hp I-4 2.0L for spirited performance in all situations. For those with a penchant for exhilaration behind the wheel, a twin-turbocharged 2.7L V6 with 335hp and 380 lb.-ft. of torque is available. Both are backed by an efficient 8-speed automatic transmission and have Intelligent AWD available.


Lexus is well known for safety-focused motoring, and the UX includes many systems as evidence. They include Blind Spot Monitor System, 10 airbags, and driver-assist systems like Pre-Collision with Pedestrian Detection, auto high-beams, and adaptive cruise control. Rain-sensing wipers are also included on all trims.

Lincoln’s technology makes safety a priority on all models like the 2020 Lincoln Nautilus. Blind Spot Detection with Cross-Traffic Alert, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane-Keeping System, and Auto High Beam headlamps are standard on all trims in Lincoln Co-Pilot360 technologies. An advanced package is also available with Lincoln Co-Pilot360 Plus and includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Active Park Assist Plus, and a 360-degree camera.
