Lincoln MKX

07

I have been wanting to try out a Lincoln car or SUV for a very long time.  They always looked like fine luxurious vehicles.  Boy was I right.  It has everything plus more.  I was part of the NYCWFF last week and I got to enjoy this beautiful ride as my main source of transportation.

The 2016 Lincoln MKX is a larger, more sophisticated midsize luxury crossover, than its previous model.  It’s technology features, and a unique premium sound system, give the Lincoln an extra edge.  The MKX shares some similarities with its cousin the Ford Edge. 
Standard safety features on the Lincoln MKX include a rearview camera, multiple airbags, passive anti-theft system, post-crash alert system, tire pressure monitoring, child-safe rear door locks, perimeter alarm, and passive anti-theft system.

Several additional safety features are available individually on select trim levels.  This includes inflatable rear outboard safety belts, pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, and the Enhanced Security Package which requires a valid coded key to avoid drive away theft and electronic lockable storage.
That touch screen controls most of the MKX’s technology, including the audio system, navigation, 360-degree camera system, climate control and 22-way power seats.

You put the MKX into gear with a row of buttons on the left side of the console’s 8-inch touch screen.
Front seats are plush with rich leather surfaces and an easy-chair feel that gives the driver and passenger a relaxing ride.  They’re easily adjustable for varying heights helping ensure good visibility.  Did I also mention that the seats give you a massage?  Yes a massage, just the right amount for a long road trip.

Rear seats are equally comfortable, although the middle seat isn’t suited for long drives.  It is incredibly roomy with 39.2 inches of headroom and 39.6 inches of leg room

As most of Lincoln’s models, the exterior design of the 2016 MKX represents a significant departure from the previous model.  The newcomer now has the company’s corporate look with split-wing grille, elegant side profile, and new, blade-like headlights.  Those changes result in well-balanced proportions and give the vehicle a rather interesting and appealing look.

I give the Lincoln a 9 out of 10. For more information visit http://www.lincoln.com/crossovers/mkx/
