Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Load up an MKX and you'll be over $60,000 before you know it, but this under-the-radar crossover largely feels worth the dough—if you take the time to seek it out.
The 2017 Lincoln MKX is a mid-size crossover capable of seating five passengers in leather-lined comfort.

Pros
Handsome, reserved styling
Strong V-6 engines
Plush inside with a high degree of customizability
Comfortable suspension and good handling

Cons
No hybrid for the lineup
Gimmicky push-button shifter
Lincoln brand lacks full luxury cachet
AWD fuel economy is so-so

The 2017 Lincoln MKX ranks 14 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The mid-ranked 2017 Lincoln MKX is worth considering if you're seeking upscale accommodations for the family without a hefty price tag. The MKX offers outstanding safety scores and just as many features as other luxury midsize SUVs, though its fuel economy trails the majority of the class.

Pros
Potent twin-turbo V6 option
Outstanding safety scores
Budget-friendly for the class

Cons
Subpar fuel economy

By:

The completely redesigned 2017 Lincoln MKX is now a more competitive midsize luxury crossover SUV. Comfortable and well-equipped, it's certainly worth a look.

Pros
Quiet interior with spacious rear seating; comfortable ride quality; a lot of features for the money; strong turbocharged V6 engine option.

Cons
Thick roof pillars and a small rear window impair rearward visibility; a few interior touch points aren't quite up to snuff.

The 2017 BMW X4 is an alternative approach to tall-riding SUVs, if you can even call it that.The 2017 BMW X4 is a nice thing. Describing it any further requires a little understanding and a break with conventional rules.It's not a coupe, and it's not much of an SUV. It's not a tall wagon, and the X4 certainly isn't much of a sedan.
Instead, it doubles down on the recipe that BMW tested with the bigger X6 and takes an existing SUV and tapers its roofline for a more interesting look and less interior space. In this case, the donor is the more upright X3, and the X4 is fashioned to be a direct rival to the Range Rover Evoque, Porsche Macan, and even the Lincoln MKC.

Pros
A seductive roofline
M40i is a true performance vehicle
Sticky handling
Base engine is plenty quick

Cons
Cargo and rear passenger space is compromised
Thick rear haunches
Not quite a Macan Turbo competitor

The 2017 BMW X4 ranks 13 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 BMW X4's strong engine options and sporty driving dynamics make it a great performer among luxury compact SUVs, but competitors offer more interior and cargo space, as well as higher predicted reliability scores.

Pros
Potent engines
User-friendly infotainment system
Accurate steering

Cons
Cramped back seats
Class-trailing cargo capacity

By:

You might already know that sitting up high and having a commanding view of the road can be a great thing. So if you're looking for a luxury SUV that gives you that sense of security along with a sleek design and strong performance, the uniquely styled 2016 BMW X4 is an interesting alternative.
Mid way through last year the xDrive35i model was replaced by the more performance-oriented M40i model. For all 2017 models, wireless phone charging and a Wi-Fi hotspot are added to the options list, while the upgraded iDrive interface included with navigation has been updated. Finally, the steering wheel included in the optional M Sport package has a new design

Pros
Strong performance and good fuel economy from its two available engines
High-quality cabin looks and feels expensive
Comfortable ride quality despite its sporty nature
Responsive handling bettered only by pricier sport-tuned rivals
High-performance M40i trim level is a rarity for the segment.

Cons
Low rear seat reduces comfort relative to the X3 and most competitors
Small cargo area for a vehicle in this class
Rearward visibility is compromised by sloping roofline
Costs more than a similarly equipped X3 which offers more room inside
Some controls can be difficult to learn
Adaptive cruise control doesn't perform as well as those of rivals.
