The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is an all-new midsize crossover. It slots in between the compact Tiguan and high-end Touareg in Volkswagen's lineup. The Atlas is actually larger than the Touareg, but it doesn't offer the same level of features or options.

PROS
Spacious interior offers ample room for passenger in all three rows
Great compromise between precise handling and everyday comfort
Straightforward cabin design makes everything easy to use

CONS
Fuel economy lags that of some competitors
Not very quick to accelerate, even with the optional V6

By: 
edmunds.com

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
