Used Car: 2013 Lincoln MKX Review
Test drivers said the 2013 Lincoln MKX rides comfortably and has a spacious interior, but they found its handling unimpressive and disliked its complicated infotainment system.
The Lincoln MKX comes with a six-cylinder engine and an automatic transmission. Reviewers said there is sufficient power in most situations, but the transmission can be hesitant to downshift when more power is needed. With its standard front-wheel drive setup (all-wheel drive is available), the 2013 MKX gets an EPA-estimated 19/26 mpg city/highway, which is pretty good for the class. Most test drivers said that the Lincoln MKX has a smooth ride and comfortable handling, but it isn’t as athletic as other SUVs in this class.
Auto writers were impressed with the 2013 Lincoln MKX’s cabin, which they said is built with high-quality materials and has a pleasing design. They also commented that the cabin is spacious and comfortable in both the front and back rows of seats. However, reviewers agreed that the standard MyLincoln Touch infotainment system is slow, tough to learn and prone to glitches. Standard features in addition to MyLincoln Touch include a USB port, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats and Bluetooth. Available features include navigation, a rear-seat entertainment system, adaptive cruise control and a rearview camera. The 2013 MKX’s overall cargo space is fairly good for the class, though it doesn’t have as much luggage capacity as the 2013 Lexus RX 350.
Other SUVs to Consider
The 2013 Acura MDX comes standard with all-wheel drive and has three rows of seats. Reviewers thought its tech features are straightforward, and they commented that it has poised handling.
For a more fun-to-drive SUV, consider the 2013 Infiniti FX. Reviewers said it has ample engine power and sports car-like handling. It also has an upscale and attractive interior, according to test drivers.
