The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.7
7.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 MKC is a step in the right direction for Lincoln, thanks to controlled handling and interior luxury, but it lacks rear seat space and the cachet of its luxury rivals. The Audi Q5 is certainly the segment's most modern offering, delivering a high degree of technology, comfort, and conservative style.
