Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

In the highly competitive compact luxury SUV segment, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is definitely worth your consideration. It combines a practical size, strong performance and a luxurious cabin with a long list of optional amenities.The existing Mercedes-Benz GLC300 comes off its debut year with a minor shuffling of features. The big news is the addition of the high-performance AMG GLC 43, with a potent V6 engine.

Pros
Balance of comfort and performance makes it an appealing daily driver
Solid fuel efficiency from the standard four-cylinder engine
Plenty of room for adult-sized passengers in back
Elegant design inside and out gives it a true luxury appearance.

Cons
Technology interface isn't always easy to use
Only one four-cylinder engine offered unless you step up to the ultra-high-performance AMG model.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class makes a terrific combination of the features and practical needs most buyers want in an attractive package.
Complementing the automaker's C-Class sedan, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is a well thought-out compact crossover that offers its own swoopy styling and attractive range of engines.

Pros
Spacious, attractive interior
Wide range of engine and body choices
"Coupe" bodystyle is unique
Comprehensive available safety features

Cons
Safety features come at a price
"Coupe" loses some practicality
Base GLC300 can feel numb
Diesel model delayed (again)

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class ranks 3 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. If you're looking for refinement – both inside and out – you'll want to look at the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC. This polished luxury compact SUV comes with more standard features than many of its competitors and has a handsome interior that emphasizes simple elegance.

Pros
Comfortable, elegant interior
Abundance of standard and optional safety features
Quiet, refined ride

Cons
Below-average cargo capacity behind rear seats

By: 
usnews.com

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: 
usnews.com

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?

By: 
thecarconnection.com

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
