Our full tour and review of the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus Reserve AWD goes in-depth with this mid-size two-row luxury crossover. We kick off with a rundown of the safety technology found on this sub $70,000 CAD vehicle including the LED exterior lighting, Lincoln Signature lights, 360º camera with rear camera wash, adaptive cruise control with lane centering, blind spot monitoring, power folding mirrors, and keyless entry with remote starter.
We also discuss the exterior design changes for the second generation Lincoln MKX, now Nautilus, and how it's updated look falls in line with the Continental and Navigator we've featured earlier. We jump on the inside with the cappuccino leather interior to talk about the 22-way power adjustable front seats with heat, ventilation, and massage, dual zone automatic climate control, heated rear seats, LED interior lighting, ambient lighting, 12.3" driver information display, 8" Sync3 infotainment, HomeLink, and panoramic sunroof. We mention some of the features not found on this vehicle, as well as how the Nautilus' interior compares to the direct competition that we've featured on TestDrive like the Cadillac XT5 and BMW X5.
We take our 2.0L turbocharged Nautilus on a road test to talk about how this luxury crossover handles, performs, and drives, and what sort of experience buyers can expect with this type of vehicle. We discuss some of Lincoln's techniques to reduce noise, vibration, and harshness on the Nautilus, and how the ride compares to the luxury competition.
We wrap up our Spotlight on the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus Reserve by going over our real-world fuel economy testing, how it compares with other mid-size crossovers we've tested, and what we ultimately liked and disliked about Lincoln's mid-size offering in the crossover world.
