      Handling Ranked 2015 Lincoln MKX worse.
      "The FX35 felt tighter and sportier then the MKX, it also felt quicker, even thought the horsepower was relatively the same."
      Would Buy Ranked 2015 Lincoln MKX better.
      "I would have bought the MKX because its overall feel was that of a luxury SUV. Unfortunately, I waited too long and somebody else bought it. Alls good though. I went to see another MKX, and drove two MKCs which were awesome. I am buying one of them."
