Touch your finger to the plastic, slide left or right and subtle lights follow your digit along. It's trick stuff, but it doesn't always work as seamlessly as, say, an iPod.

The nav system was accurate and detailed, and Sync enabled us to dial up E-Street Radio, no problem.

Is complexity like this really what you want?

The 2014 Lincoln MKX is a true luxury vehicle, and its features set represents that. Even at the entry price, you'll get a full roster of features and top-notch materials and trims, with only a few options on offer.

The star of the MKX cabin remains MyLincoln Touch, an infotainment and connectivity system that's incorporates a touch screen and customizable gauge cluster, allowing everything from hands-free calling to climate controls and entertainment selections. It's now simpler, easier to use, and less trouble-prone than it was a couple of years ago—thanks mainly to a major firmware upgrade given to the system last year. The pair of capacitive swipe-touch bars remain an issue for some fingers, it seems; and others might be either delighted or distraught to find that the dozens of buttons you'd find on another car's audio, navigation and climate controls are simply gone, replaced by the touch-sensitive functions on the screen—and steering-wheel and voice controls.

Above and beyond the MyLincoln Touch command center, the MKX also sports a media hub with two USB ports, a set of composite jacks and an SD card slot. Instead of fitting a CD changer, Ford thinks this module will let it stay ahead of in-car electronics and user needs. Unfortunately, in this case, the media hub is slotted behind the shifter and it's hard to plug in your USB cable. There's also a plastic lip that makes putting anything flat—like an SD card—in that bin a very difficult exercise in extraction.

Otherwise, adaptive cruise control and collision warning are offered together in an option package, and the only other options include a rear DVD entertainment system and a navigation system with upgraded THX II audio.

A Limited Edition Package is new to the lineup this year, adding leather seats; leather trim for the center console, instrument panel, and steering wheel; contrasting red stitching, and dark tuxedo stripe and piping.

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.
