Coming in at about $40,000 to start, the MKX undercuts its default European rivals like the Mercedes-Benz GLE and the BMW X5, but the MKX can be built to a nearly as luxurious standard with just a few options.
Its most obvious rival is the segment-leading, in terms of sales numbers, Lexus RX, which is justifiably popular.
The Nissan Murano is another under-the-radar crossover that feels more luxurious than its nameplate might suggest, and it's something of a bargain.
And then there's the Audi Q5, which is priced about like the MKX but is quite a bit smaller inside and out.
