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 2018 Nissan Murano ranked #9 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Nissan Murano has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 35 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
High-end cabin
Extremely comfortable seats
Easy-to-use tech features
Fuel-efficient for a V6 SUV

Cons
Poor rear visibility
Slow steering response

By:

The 2018 Nissan Murano adds better active safety to complement its sharp looks and easy-driving nature.

Pros
Sharp exterior style
Comfortable drive
Better safety features this year
Every trim has navigation and big touchscreen
Relatively good fuel economy…

Cons
…but still no hybrid powertrain
CVT doesn’t like to be pressed on time
Lacking upper-level interior touches like wood trim
Style won’t be for everyone

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, the Nissan Murano now includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and navigation on every model. Options have been distilled into two packages, with options from previous model years (i.e., adaptive cruise control, heated rear seats) now spread throughout the lineup as standard features.

PROS
Delivers right balance of power and fuel-efficiency
Interior highlighted by high-quality materials and unique design
Front seats are exceptionally comfortable
Spacious rear seats accommodate passengers and car seats with equal ease

CONS
Stylish exterior design creates compromised outward visibility
Can't tow heavy weekend toys like some competitors
Modest cargo capacity limits practicality
