2010 Lincoln MKT vs. Its Competition

2010 Lincoln MKT
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The 2010 Lincoln MKT stands out in a group of seven-seat crossovers with impressive styling, features, and comfort.

It's closest in price to the Acura MDX, which has more pedestrian styling but a touch more refinement, though the 2010 model's loose steering is an unwelcome change.

The Audi Q7 carries a base price near that of the MKT, but adding diesels, V-8s, or third-row seats balloons its price into the stratosphere.

You'll pay for the most refined driving feel in the bunch.

The Buick Enclave is a less expensive alternative, with seven seats and a suave design inside and out, but handling and drivetrain refinement are less satisfying than in these cars.
