2nd Opinion -- CheeLincoln MKX – Chee’s Opinion:
Painted switches. Nothing better sums up the current state of affairs at Lincoln than the painted switches you find inside its vehicles, and no vehicle better reveals this distinct disadvantage than the MKX crossover. Sure, all automakers borrow from the common car bin when building luxury variants, but the MKX seeps of “Edge”ness. This just isn’t good enough in a market that includes the Lexus RX and the Acura MDX. It’s a shame, for the cabin is comfortable and nicely appointed, with light wood grain and soft leather, and the panoramic sunroof is very cool. The powertrain is also competitive, offering plenty of power and response, though we’ll ignore its handing prowess – or lack thereof. At 40 grand and counting, car buyers deserve more.
