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 MKZ packs plenty of standard features, so there's a certain amount of value to be had here considering rival cars are typically more expensive.Expanded standard feature availability.Turbocharged V6 engine now only available on the top Reserve II trim.

Pros
Comes well-equipped with many standard features
Hybrid model available at no extra charge
Impressively quick acceleration with turbocharged V6 engine option

Cons
Underwhelming interior quality
Short on interior space given its exterior size
Slower-than-average acceleration with the base engine
