2016 Lincoln MKT vs. Its Competition

2016 Lincoln MKT
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The Lincoln MKT is one of the most distinctive designs, among luxury models with three rows of seating.

The Acura MDX has a big eight-passenger interior and glints of personality—and it's the best-handling vehicle in its class.

The Audi Q7 subtle in its styling and very luxurious inside, and with the all-new version due for 2017 it becomes roomier inside and gets even more tech features.

The Volvo XC90 is also entirely new for 2016 and has a super-stylish, well-detailed interior, a remarkably good interface, and a more fuel-efficient powertrain.

The Buick Enclave drives heavy but rides gracefully, and its emphasis on spaciousness and ride comfort make it a good pick for those who want a roomy family vehicle above all else.

The closely related Ford Flex might also warrant some consideration, as it has some of the same features and mechanical underpinnings, instead subbing in a boxy shape and blacked-out pillars in a look that will be more alluring to some families.

Quick Specs
The 2016 Lincoln MKT has a polarizing style for a crossover wagon; combined with its comfortable, super-spacious interior and muscular powertrains, it's still an outside pick, especially against other luxury crossovers.
The 2016 Acura MDX remains one of the best luxury three-row SUVs, but the benefits of its new nine-speed automatic are unclear.
The Enclave is a smooth, comfortable vehicle suitable for large families.
The 2016 Ford Flex remains a singularly boxy and handsome SUV, with excellent interior room and safety scores.
