The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2018 BMW X3 ventures into M territory, but doesn’t lose sight of its SUV duties.
