Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Forester was all new for 2019, so Subaru hasn't made many changes for 2020; however, there are a few new features that buyers might find interesting. The standard adaptive cruise control system gains a lane-centering feature, the tire-pressure monitor now displays the pressure in each tire, an LED lamp illuminates the license plate on all models, and a rear-seat reminder alerts the driver to check the back seat upon exiting the vehicle if the rear doors were opened prior to the start of the trip. Premium models now come standard with the contents of last year's All-Weather package—heated exterior mirrors, heated front seats, and a windshield wiper de-icer—and touring models get LED cargo-area dome lights.

Pros
Good at most everything that matters to crossover buyers, spacious cabin, relaxed ride and handling.

Cons
Lethargic acceleration, uninspired design, few luxuries come standard.

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?

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
