Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Lincoln MKX ranked #17 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Lincoln MKX has a score of 8.0 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 24 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Cushioned handling
Light on the wallet for the class, heavy on features
Top-tier crash test scores

Cons
Below-average gas mileage

The 2018 Lincoln MKX has an athletic feel and a classy interior, but we wish that its most advanced safety tech was available at a lower price point.

Pros
Robust V-6 engines
Comfortable, upmarket interior
Good infotainment system
Rides and handles well
Conservatively handsome looks

Cons
Thirsty lineup lacks hybrid option
Frustrating push-button shifter
Advanced safety tech is costly
Is Lincoln a true luxury brand?

The MKX is unchanged for the 2018 model year.Overall, we recommend the MKX's Select trim level. It's just above the base Premiere trim level and adds a few creature comforts. More important, it's the key to getting desirable options packages such as the Climate package and the Select Plus package

PROS
Quiet interior with spacious rear seating
Comfortable ride quality
A lot of features for the money
Strong turbocharged V6 engine option

CONS
Interior quality isn't as high as that of many European rivals
Thick roof pillars and a small rear window impair rear visibility

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

By:

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
