The 2009 Lincoln MKX is a nice-looking offering from the outside, but reviewers aren’t nearly as universally impressed by the interior’s styling.

Kelley Blue Book calls the exterior of the Lincoln MKX 2009 "handsome," sporting "high-shouldered, flare-fendered flanks" and "edge-to-edge LEDs across the liftgate," and Edmunds feels that the Lincoln MKX "looks elegant, with tasteful yet eye-catching exterior styling." In short, the exterior of the 2009 Lincoln MKX is nothing if not distinct. ForbesAutos says that the "MKX distinguishes itself from boxier-looking SUVs with a more stylish exterior" that features a "sleek roofline that sweeps gracefully rearward"—somewhat at odds with Autoblog's description of the MKX's "very muscular stance, kind of like a British bulldog." Reviewers at Car and Driver "dig the full-width brake light," while those at Edmunds find them "particularly striking."

Unfortunately, the interior of the 2009 Lincoln MKX is somewhat disappointing. ConsumerGuide praises the interior as "upscale, if just a bit shy of the best in this class," and Autoblog likes the "clean and clutter free" dash and "real wood used liberally throughout the cabin"—but Car and Driver contends that the Lincoln MKX's interior "isn't even in the same league, much less ballpark, as its luxury competition." They take particular offense with the "acres of silver plastic." Cars.com also disapproves of parts of the interior, especially the "satin nickel," which is "Lincoln's name for the metal-like finish on the center control panels."

Conclusion

The 2009 Lincoln MKX is nice on the outside—but the interior disappoints, especially at this price.

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.
