Autoblog

Among the quietest of any crossovers
ConsumerGuide

The 2008 Lincoln MKX is a true luxury car from a luxury brand, and accordingly, it places an emphasis on occupant comfort and build quality.

The Lincoln MKX is a crossover with room for five to sit comfortably. ConsumerGuide loves the Lincoln MKX 2008's "ample legroom" and "exceptionally comfortable" seats up front, while also noting that there is "plenty of room for most any individual" in the back. Autoblog, like most reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, agrees, finding that "the seats are a particular treat" and make "a suitable throne from which to pilot" the Lincoln MKX. Headroom is decent, but ConsumerGuide feels that "taller occupants may want more head clearance beneath the housing for the panoramic roof."

Cargo space can be found throughout the 2008 Lincoln MKX, but especially up front, where Kelley Blue Book says you will find a "large, deep console box" with the ability to "accommodate CDs, purses or laptop computers." In the back, "the 60/40-split second-row seat provides impressive roominess in all dimensions." However, Edmunds notes that the Lincoln MKX 2008 "provides less cargo space than most other luxury crossovers, and there is no third-row option."

The 2008 Lincoln MKX loses some points when it comes to build materials. Although Autoblog finds that "the real wood" on the interior is "both attractive and friendly to the fingers," Car and Driver simply cannot find any way to love the "acres of silver plastic." On the positive side, ConsumerGuide feels that Lincoln MKX 2008 "makes wise use of padded surfaces and genuine wood trim," and Kelley Blue Book claims that "this may be the quietest Lincoln ever built."

Conclusion

The 2008 Lincoln MKX is extraordinarily comfortable, but occupants probably won't enjoy some of the lower-quality interior materials.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
