If you are searching for a crossover that has hit the market with a full start, then the Lincoln MKX SUV Crossover is what you might be looking for. Unlike some other Lincoln models on the market, the MKX not only looks like a luxury SUV crossover, but it has many of the makings of one too, both on the exterior, interior and under the hood. While critics would still suggest that it borrows much of its design from the Ford Edge, including the sheet metal build, there are some great inclusions in this model that really do help to take it to the next level. Priced starting at just under $40,000 the Lincoln MKX SUV Crossover houses a powerful 305 hp V6 engine that has plenty of power for the road, and in the cabin the sleek design of the consoles and dash add to the classy and luxurious feel of this crossover. These features make the MKX worthy of standing toe-to-toe with other crossover SUVs like the Lexus RX 350 or the Audi Q5. Additionally, the 26 mpg highway average makes the MKX stand above quite a few crossover SUVs on the market, including those that have less power.

However, there are a few selling points that make the Lincoln MKX SUV Crossover a desirable vehicle. The seating and the space in this SUV is not only comfortable, but roomy, making you feel as though you were inside a Chevy Suburban. Additionally, there is 32.3 cubic feet of cargo room, which can easily be doubled when you fold down the second seat, though they are not electric like other Lincoln models.

The MyLincoln Touch, one of the special features that has been incorporated into the Lincoln MKX SUV Crossover is intended to act as a touchscreen command center for the vehicle, with navigation, phone control and audio options all in one. However, critics and owners alike have found themselves having much difficulty in understanding the operation of this system and feel that it does not work well. Some claim that it is too slow or too difficult to see the touchscreen without stopping and staring at it. The MyLincoln touch on the Lincoln MKX SUV Crossover has been cause for much confusion and headaches for drivers, so it is suggested that before you buy you understand how to operate it.

The Lincoln MKX SUV Crossover might not be a vehicle that you would consider a strong player in the SUV and crossover market, however a smooth ride, plenty of space, loads of features and a powerful engine make it a worthwhile crossover. If you can get over the few little drawbacks then you might be surprised at how pleased you might actually be with the MKX.
