The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.7
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Consider the 2018 Acura RDX if you’re after a budget-conscious crossover that rides and drives well. The 2018 Lincoln MKC is a luxury compact crossover that’s a relative value compared to others. It’s an SUV with all the amenities, but without the cachet.
