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

By:

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

Forget about its Chinese roots; the Envision is a comfortable, well-appointed crossover. But it's also expensive, and there are some interior compromises.
Let's not beat around the bush: The 2017 Buick Envision is the first mainstream vehicle assembled in China and exported to the United States.
Introduced last year but expanded for the 2017 model year to a full lineup of base, Preferred, Essence, Premium, and Premium II trim levels, the Envision may sound like a brand of perfume, but it's really a mid-size crossover.

Pros
Perfect fit for the Buick lineup
Quiet interior
Comfortable ride quality
Attractive styling

Cons
Price on par with genuine luxury rivals
Would you buy a Chinese-made American car?
Turbo is AWD-only
Advanced safety tech costs big bucks

The 2017 Buick Envision ranks 12 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 Buick Envision gets lost near the back of the luxury compact SUV pack. It’s comfortable to drive and nicely equipped, and it offers good value for the money, but in a sea of over-achievers, the Envision is just average.

Pros
Peppy turbocharged engine
Comfortable, spacious seats
Excellent safety ratings
Lots of tech features

Cons
Underpowered base engine
Dull handling

By:

The 2017 Buick Envision is an all-new vehicle in the lineup that slots between the smaller Encore and the midsize Enclave SUVs. The Envision combines a practical size with a long list of standard features that make it a value-packed, near-luxury SUV worth considering.

Pros
Manageable size makes it easy to drive and maneuver
The cabin is as quiet inside as premium luxury SUVs
You get a lot of features for the money.

Cons
Cargo capacity is merely average for the class
Engine output is adequate but far from impressive.
