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

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:

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

The 2018 Lincoln MKT has some appeal in its distinctive design, appealing list of features and strong available turbocharged V6 engine. But its dated overall design holds it back from being a truly desirable pick for a luxury crossover.The 2018 Lincoln MKT trims are renamed Premiere and Reserve, replacing the base MKT and EcoBoost, respectively.

Pros
Generous number of standard features
Optional turbocharged V6 provides strong acceleration

Cons
Tight rear headroom and luggage space
Dated interior design and controls
Many safety features are optional
Base MKT isn't particularly rewarding to drive
