The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Lincoln MKX has aged well, continuing to offer one of the nicer interiors in the class with very few gimmicks. The 2015 Volkswagen Touareg is expensive and fancy for a VW, but less expensive than some comparable luxury-SUV options.
