The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

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 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class blends hatchback with crossover, with better than mixed results.
