The 2010 Lincoln MKX offers a mixed bag when it comes to luxury accommodations, with comfort and convenience ranking high, but materials quality falling short.
The Lincoln MKX is five-passenger crossover, with no option for third-row seating. ConsumerGuide welcomes the 2010 MKX's "ample legroom" and "exceptionally comfortable" seats up front, while also finding "plenty of room for most any individual" in the back. Autoblog agrees that "the seats are a particular treat" and make "a suitable throne from which to pilot" the Lincoln MKX. Headroom is good, but ConsumerGuide feels that "taller occupants may want more head clearance beneath the housing for the panoramic roof."
Further back, "the 60/40-split second-row seat provides impressive roominess in all dimensions." On the other hand, Edmunds states that the 2010 Lincoln MKX "provides less cargo space than most other luxury crossovers, and there is no third-row option." There's no shortage of storage for front-seat passengers in the 2010 Lincoln MKX, thanks to the "large, deep console box," which can "accommodate CDs, purses or laptop computers," according to Kelley Blue Book.
Kelley Blue Book also praises cabin noise levels, noting "this may be the quietest Lincoln ever built." ConsumerGuide likes how the 2010 Lincoln MKX "makes wise use of padded surfaces and genuine wood trim." Build materials give rise to some criticism, with Car and Driver unable to appreciate the "acres of silver plastic," though Autoblog deems "the real wood" interior trim "both attractive and friendly to the fingers."
The 2010 Lincoln MKX is comfortable despite lackluster materials choices.
