Lincoln vs BMW: Cabin Technologies

As popular luxury brands, Lincoln and BMW both know how to outfit an interior to be beautiful, comfortable, and modern. This includes a suite of technologies that aim to keep you connected and entertained while on the move.

In both the Lincoln Nautilus and BMW X5, you'll find amenities like multi-zone climate control systems for optimal comfort as well as 12.3-inch digital instrument clusters. These keep you up to date on all your driving stats on an easy-to-see display.

However, the Lincoln Nautilus takes technology a step further. With its standard 13.2-inch touchscreen multimedia system, you can easily access everything from smartphone integration to directions and more. The 2022 BMW X5, on the other hand, offers a smaller standard touchscreen at 12.3 inches, making it less easy to multitask while on the road.

The available sound system in the Lincoln Nautilus is also more advanced. If you opt for the Revel® Ultima Audio System, you'll have 19 high-end speakers in your cabin as well as different listening modes, such as Stereo, Audience, and On Stage. While the X5 also offers an upgraded sound system, it only comes with 16 speakers and no customizable listening modes.

If you're in the market for an SUV, you're likely looking for a spacious cabin that can accommodate the needs of you and your family. Luckily, that's just what you find in the 2022 Lincoln Nautilus and the 2022 BMW X5.

Both offer two rows of seating that can hold five passengers. However, when you really look at the seating spaciousness of each model, you'll find one offers more than the other, especially in the second row:
