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

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

The 2019 Buick Enclave carries over from the redesigned 2018 model with only minor trim and options updates, and that's a good thing. We like the Enclave's long list of standard features and its high level of in-car technology.

Pros
Generous room for passengers in all three rows
Quiet and smooth ride quality
Plenty of standard features

Cons
Some advanced safety features only available on the top trim level

Abhor the idea of a minivan? The 2019 Buick Enclave is a generously sized family crossover with a quiet interior and luxury appointments—and no sliding doors.

Pros
Balanced and well-defined silhouette
Generous third-row space
Minimalist cockpit
Confident ride and handling
Decent performance, but…

Cons
...fuel economy lags
Trims and options get pricey fast
Base model lacks most advanced safety tech
All-wheel drive is part-time only
