Default Lexus NX (Matador Red Mica) and Lincoln MKC (Ruby Red)

Here's a nice comparison of these two newcomers. Both offer a gorgeous shade of red. I should note the MKC's purple Tahitian Pearl is beautiful too.

NX interior is completely different level... as to colors, they look very similar on those pics but to really compare them, they should be next to each other, outside.

I'm looking forward to X3 vs. Q5 vs. GLK vs. NX vs. MKC vs. RDX comparos!

MKC is not that bad in red. Looks fairly sporty and Audi "Q5-ish". But the bland front-end and badge kill it for me.

The paint on the NX will probably blow away the Lincoln.

The MKC is more good looking than the Lexus NX but the Lincoln's interior is crap while the Lexus interior is beautiful. Exterior is big advantage for Lincoln though.

Next to the NX the MKC looks like last gen design.

I wish the Matador Red NX had color-keyed side mirrors. I think it would look nicer. Looks like the silver NX has silver mirrors. Black NX has black mirrors.

f-sport has black mirrors with chrome inlay... and regular NX has color keyed, no matter whats the exterior color.

Each to his own, I guess. We'll be replacing our RX400h with a full-luxury suv, not a sports car. (I've got an XLR for that). Anyway, to us the MKC looks elegant while the NX looks almost cartoonish.

MKC looks bland and boring while the NX looks sharp and futuristic.
