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

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:

Genuinely capable 4x4 can seat seven and tow big loads.

PROS
Tough, rugged and reliable workhorse
Far better than previous model
Huge boot in five-seat mode
Seven-seat version available
CONS
Ride can be choppy
Not much engine/gearbox choice
Relatively unknown brand
Low fuel economy and high tax

The Rexton is a well-priced SUV that has a lot of boot space for the money and can carry seven people.
Reviews are fairly poor though since it’s not good to drive, noisy and has a dull image. It is one of the cheapest ways to move large loads and more people than usual however, so if you’re in that market then it’s worth a look.

Pros
Good off-road
Practical
Long warranty

Cons
Poor ride
Noisy
Outdated

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The Rexton’s four-wheel drive system spends most of its life driving the rear wheels only, diverting power to the front when conditions get more slippery. In most of the cars sold in the UK it will be controlled through a Mercedes-sourced seven-speed automatic transmission - but a six-speed manual is likely to be offered on entry-level editions.
The dashboard has a clean look - again, with some cues from the Tivoli - but cross-stitched material panels and Nappa leather add a touch of luxury. The equipment on offer will include dual-zone climate control, a powered rear tailgate that opens automatically when the keyholder has been standing behind it for three seconds, and a new level of safety kit for SsangYong, including nine airbags and rear cross-traffic alert.
