The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Lexus ES is the one of the best luxury cars for those who still have practical considerations like back-seat space and ride comfort; and the 300h Hybrid model is quite the counterpoint to much more expensive 'green luxury' models. The 2015 MKC doesn’t go far in redefining Lincoln as a brand, but badging aside, it presents as exactly the luxury product shoppers want—a lively and lavish, yet super-refined compact crossover.
