The 2010 Lincoln MKX offers plenty to like from the outside, but the interior leaves reviewers unimpressed.
Kelley Blue Book finds the 2010 Lincoln MKX's "handsome" exterior is enhanced by "high-shouldered, flare-fendered flanks" and "edge-to-edge LEDs across the liftgate." Edmunds agrees, noting MKX "looks elegant, with tasteful yet eye-catching exterior styling." Autoblog describes the MKX's look as a "very muscular stance, kind of like a British bulldog." Car and Driver's reviewers "dig the full-width brake light," while again Edmunds agrees, finding them "particularly striking."
The interior of the 2010 Lincoln MKX unfortunately doesn't live up to the promise of the exterior. Autoblog sees the positive, noting the "clean and clutter free" dash and "real wood used liberally throughout the cabin"-but Car and Driver argues that the Lincoln MKX's interior "isn't even in the same league, much less ballpark, as its luxury competition," taking particular offense to the "acres of silver plastic." ConsumerGuide sees the interior as "upscale, if just a bit shy of the best in this class, while Cars.com also finds parts of the interior lacking, especially the "satin nickel," which is "Lincoln's name for the metal-like finish on the center control panels."
The interior of the 2010 Lincoln MKX fails to live up to its attractive exterior, making for an unbalanced package.
