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 ranked #11 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Lincoln MKC has a score of 7.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 25 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Buttery ride
User-friendly infotainment system

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 subcompact crossover SUV class is gaining in popularity and the latest entrant, the 2018 Hyundai Kona, has a lot of potential to take the lead. Its exterior style may be somewhat polarizing, but it drives better than the competition. It also delivers a lot for the money and checks all of the boxes that shoppers want in this type of vehicle.
PROS
Optional turbocharged engine provides quick acceleration
Nimble handling makes it enjoyable to drive
Lots of features for your money

CONS
Weak base engine

The 2018 Hyundai Kona ranked #1 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Hyundai Kona has a score of 8.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 14 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Agile handling
Potent available turbo-four engine
Intuitive infotainment system

Cons
Lower maximum cargo capacity than rivals
Uninspiring base engine

By: 
usnews.com

With its quirky styling, the Kona is set to perk up some fun. Choose from a 147-hp 2.0-liter inline-four with a six-speed automatic transmission or a 175-hp turbo 1.6-liter inline-four with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is optional with both engines.

Pros
Tight build and rattle-free cabin,
well-tuned dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Cons
Some interior plastics not up to par,
penalty-box rear seat.
