Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class ranks 2 out of 5 Luxury Subcompact SUVs. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV offers compact-car-like agility and fuel economy in an upscale package. However, there’s little passenger and storage space – even for a subcompact – and its ride isn't as cushioned as many of its rivals.

Pros
Powerful engines
Outstanding handling
Lavish interior
Class-leading reliability score

Cons
Poor cargo capacity
Small back seats

By:

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is a small, luxury compact 'ute that prioritizes "looks" over "feels," or in other words, it's probably perfect for a lot of shoppers.
Mercedes' smallest crossover—if you can call it that—returns this year to challenge our ideas of compact SUVs, performance, and rear seat head room. Offered as a base front-drive GLA250, all-wheel drive GLA250, or top Mercedes-AMG GLA45, the GLA class may follow Mercedes' nomenclature as an SUV, but it's in a class all its own.

Pros
Impressive dynamic driving
Lots of turbo fun
Sporty and small for two
Decent fuel economy
Great options ...

Cons
but they're pricey
$60,000 for a subcompact hatch?
Cramped rear seat

By:

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality is available for both 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class versions this year. Mercedes says the instrument panel has been mildly redesigned, and the 8-inch display screen is thinner than before. The new AMG Dinamica package adds faux-suede upholstery to the GLA 45's steering wheel and dashboard.

Pros
Sporty handling and performance even in the base model
AMG GLA 45's long list of available technology and safety features.

Cons
Ride quality is firm to the point some might object
Road and wind noise is in abundance
Automatic transmission can operate awkwardly in stop-and-go situations
Less cargo capacity than its rivals.

By:

For 2017, the standard Sync 3 touchscreen infotainment system gains Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone interfaces. A power liftgate and an automatic brake hold feature are also added to the already ample standard features list.

Pros
More standard features than many of its competitors
Heavily insulated cabin remains quiet at all times
Order the optional adjustable suspension for an especially supple ride.

Cons
Less room in the backseat and cargo area compared to many competitors
Slower than average acceleration from either of its available engines
Some interior materials look cheap considering the price point.

The 2017 Lincoln MKC ranks 8 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. If you're looking for a luxury SUV with a comfortable, relaxed ride and an upscale, feature-laden interior, the 2017 Lincoln MKC could meet your needs. However, if you can stretch your budget a bit more you can get an SUV with better performance and more cargo and passenger space.

Pros
Hushed cabin
Cushioned ride
Generous list of standard features

Cons
Little rear-seat legroom
Mediocre cargo room
Noticeable turbo lag from base and upgraded engines

By: 
usnews.com

The 2017 MKC is a step in the right direction for Lincoln, thanks to controlled handling and interior luxury, but it lacks rear seat space and the cachet of its luxury rivals.

Pros
Strong turbocharged engines
Responsive steering, handling
Nicely detailed cabin
Real. Radio. Knobs.
Leather and wood (from Scotland, no less)

Cons
Tight back seat
EcoBoost engines aren't always 'eco'
Transmission doesn't always match engine's urgency
The anonymity of Lincoln today
