The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.2
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 Buick Encore does the pint-size crossover thing well, although it lacks some safety tech and gets pricey with options.
