Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Lincoln MKC has a new grille that matches the one seen on brand's latest vehicles such as the Continental and Navigator. It's an improvement and gives the MKC a classier look. But the rest of the 2019 MKC is unchanged, which means it has some issues that prevent it from being a top contender in the premium crossover SUV segment.

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 available engine
Some common driver safety aids only available on the top trim levels
Smaller back seat and cargo area compared to many competitors

Pros
Buttery ride
User-friendly infotainment system
Low base price

Cons
Subpar cargo space
Uninspiring handling
Undersized rear seats

The 2019 Lincoln MKC luxury crossover this year pairs refined powertrains with better looks, but it still lags the space or efficiency found in other rivals.

Pros
Quality interior
Refined road manners
New higher-end look
Easy to use Sync 3
Fun, but overpowered optional 2.3-liter turbo-4

Cons
Fuel efficiency leaves us wanting
Could use more standard advanced safety tech
Small rear seat

In the Q3 Sportback, Audi introduces a racier version of its newest upcoming Q3 small SUV, and it's bound to attract plenty of admirers since it gives up very little in the way of space.

Pros
Like a perfectly scaled-down Audi Q8
Great looks inside and out
Premium cabin with new levels of detail and trim work
Fun to drive (both engines)
45 TFSI feels like a proper hot hatch in the corners
Good ride comfort with adaptive dampers
Good safety and tech

Cons
There's a big gap in performance between the 35–45 TFSI
Expect a similar-size gap in prices, too

The Audi Q3 Sportback is a more stylish alternative to your average boxy SUV, although others are more fun to drive and have more room for passengers.

Pros
Big boot
Stylish looks
Plenty of standard equipment

Cons
Cramped back seats
Alternatives are more fun to drive
Automatic gearbox is a bit sluggish

The 2020 Audi Q3 blends practicality, quality, and fun in a chunky but city-friendly package.

Pros

Punchy turbo engine
Hot hatchback handling
Standard all-wheel drive

Cons
…But best features cost a lot more
Lackluster fuel economy
Gets expensive fast
