Expert Quotes:

The cheap, sparkly plastic that Lincoln loved so much has been banished, as have most sources of interior noise.
Car and Driver

The seats, with their contrasting piping and excellent leather, are a work of art in and of themselves
Autoblog

exceptional quietness thanks to acoustic laminated glass and insulating efforts
Automobile Magazine

handsome, quiet cabin with quality leather and trim
AutoWeek

a cushy ride along with a cabin that's notably quiet, even at higher freeway speeds
Edmunds

The 2014 Lincoln MKX is a high-comfort zone for four adults, with a smooth quiet ride in most versions and enough room for weekend roll-aboards.

It's designed to do even more, toting five adults in comfort, and it hits that mark. The front bucket seats heat and ventilate themselves to relieve any passing climate changes, and have memory positions so that two drivers don't have to tussle back and forth over setting ideal driving positions--including the MKX's mirrors and power tilt/telescoping steering wheel.

The back seat gives up little to the fronts, save for the view. The seatbacks recline a few degrees for exceptional comfort. Unlike some less expensive crossovers, like the GMC Terrain, the MKX's second-row bench doesn't slide on a track, though. That feature might help make its smallish cargo area more useful, but it's only a cubic foot or two less sizable than some of its competition. Seat heaters are included up front and available in back; and you'll even find enough width to fit three adults across in the back seat on occasion.

Once the seats are folded, we can't think of anything to kvetch about--except maybe that the seats don't fold completely flat. And separately, the MKX's power tailgate is slow to open and close, and it makes a fair amount of noise.

We like the MKX's swanky interior, and how there's enough useful storage in the console, door panels and glove box.

 

 

Conclusion

Comfort is better than some luxury crossovers, with great seats; and the MKX wows with great fit, finish, and materials.

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.
