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

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

For 2018, the Mazda CX-9 delivers a handful of small but useful changes. Standard on all models is Mazda's G-Vectoring Control, a new electronic system that the company says improves steering and stability in turns. All trims offer new standard safety features and driver aids, ranging from blind-spot monitoring on Sport trims to front parking sensors on upper trims.

PROS
With sharp, modern style inside and out, the CX-9 feels richer than its cost
Sporty handling makes it fun to drive
Comfortable interior remains quiet on the highway
Top-level Signature trim is on par with some luxury-brand competitors

CONS
Third-row seats aren't especially accommodating
Cargo capacity isn't as generous as in competitors
