2018 Lincoln MKC vs. Its Competition

Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Lincoln MKC competes in a lucrative and crowded field of competitors that are offering new models at a furious pace.

The BMW X3 and Volvo XC60 are new for this year, and offer the latest in bleeding-edge tech—including many of the safety features that the Lincoln lacks.

The Audi Q5 was new last year and boasts a new all-wheel-drive system that makes it more efficient than the Lincoln.

Buick’s Encore is a half-size smaller in size, and in price.

The Acura RDX is a compelling pick because of its conservative style, but is relatively aged compared to the crowd.

Quick Specs
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.
Consider the 2018 Acura RDX if you’re after a budget-conscious crossover that rides and drives well.
The Audi Q5 is certainly the segment's most modern offering, delivering a high degree of technology, comfort, and conservative style.
The 2018 BMW X3 ventures into M territory, but doesn’t lose sight of its SUV duties.
The 2018 Buick Encore does the pint-size crossover thing well, although it lacks some safety tech and gets pricey with options.
With the new 2018 XC60, Volvo has cached all the XC90’s good data, and trimmed some fat from its code.
