Expert Quotes:

provides less cargo space than most other luxury crossovers, and there is no third-row option

the MKX has an exceptional center storage console

among the quietest of any crossovers

The 2009 Lincoln MKX generally lives up to its luxury moniker when it comes to comfort and quality, although few reviewers are impressed with the materials and surfaces.

The Lincoln MKX is a crossover with room for five to sit comfortably. Autoblog finds that "the seats are a particular treat" and make "a suitable throne from which to pilot" the Lincoln MKX. ConsumerGuide adores the Lincoln MKX 2009's "ample legroom" and "exceptionally comfortable" seats up front, while also noting "plenty of room for most any individual" in the back. Headroom is decent, but ConsumerGuide feels that "taller occupants may want more head clearance beneath the housing for the panoramic roof."

In the back, "the 60/40-split second-row seat provides impressive roominess in all dimensions." However, Edmunds notes that the 2009 Lincoln MKX "provides less cargo space than most other luxury crossovers, and there is no third-row option." Cargo space is good up front in the 2009 Lincoln MKX, where Kelley Blue Book says you will find a "large, deep console box" with the ability to "accommodate CDs, purses or laptop computers."

ConsumerGuide observes that the Lincoln MKX 2009 "makes wise use of padded surfaces and genuine wood trim," and Kelley Blue Book claims that "this may be the quietest Lincoln ever built." But the 2009 Lincoln MKX loses some points when it comes to build materials. Although Autoblog deems "the real wood" on the interior "both attractive and friendly to the fingers," Car and Driver simply cannot find any way to appreciate the "acres of silver plastic."

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.
