Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Lincoln MKC is a luxury compact crossover that’s a relative value compared to others. It’s an SUV with all the amenities, but without the cachet.

Pros
Quality interior materials
Entertaining and powerful 2.3-liter turbo-4
Competent road manners
Better infotainment with Sync3

Cons
Cramped rear seat
Lacking advanced safety systems
Gimmicky pushbutton shifter
Not especially fuel-efficient

By:

With a long list of features and one of the lowest base prices in its class, the 2018 Lincoln MKC is a great value. However, many class rivals are more well-rounded than this midpack SUV.

Pros
Smooth ride
Lots of standard features
User-friendly infotainment system
Low base price

Cons
Mediocre handling ability
Cramped rear seats
Below-average cargo space

By: 
usnews.com

For 2018, the MKC receives Lincoln Connect, Lincoln's 4G Wi-Fi hotspot system, added standard to all trims. Premiere models receive four-way power lumbar control on the driver seat, while both front seats benefit from the power lumbar on Select trims and higher.

PROS
More standard features than many of its competitors
Comfortable and quiet ride on the highway

CONS
Some interior materials look cheap considering the price point
Slower-than-average acceleration from either of its available engines
Some common driver safety aids only available on the top trim levels
Less room in the back seat and cargo area compared to many competitors

By:

The 2018 Lexus RX 350 ranked #9 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Lexus RX 350 has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 33 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Coddling ride
Many standard and available features

Cons
Low safety scores for class
Less cargo room than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

The RX 350 is available in just two versions, and we think it's worth spending a bit more and upgrading to the F Sport trim. The F Sport, despite its name, isn't as sporty as some vehicles in the class such as the Porsche Macan, but it does bundle several desirable options together, including the adaptive suspension dampers and heated and ventilated front seats. The F Sport also gives the RX a more aggressive look and 20-inch wheels as standard.

PROS
Attractive cabin with top-quality materials and construction
Ride quality makes almost any road feel smooth
Advanced safety features come standard
Wide cargo bay makes it easy to load luggage and groceries

CONS
Less overall cargo capacity than competitors
Optional tech interface is distracting to use while driving

By: 
edmunds.com

The Lexus RX makes a style-conscious statement like never before, and it hasn’t lost its grip on good manners.

Pros
Bracing design
Swift acceleration
Broad range of road manners
Hybrid's high gas mileage
High-tech safety standard

Cons
That polarizing sheet metal
Gets expensive in a hurry
Firm F Sport ride
Gas-only mileage just average
