2016 Lincoln MKC vs 2016 Acura RDX

The Lincoln MKC and Acura RDX are vehicles aimed at luring young and affluent professionals with families into the crossover SUV segment. Let’s take a look at the 2016 Lincoln MKC vs 2016 Acura RDX. They both offer an impressive list of standard features, but with a longer list of features and a lower base price, we think you’ll find the MKC from Lincoln comes out on top.

For 2016, the Acura RDX has gotten a mild refresh to its looks as well as its engine. It has more power, and its fuel efficiency has improved to match the Lincoln MKC. The sculpted lines and sophisticated front and rear fascias of the Lincoln are one of its main draws. It really stands out from the crossover crowd. And if performance is a priority, the Lincoln has an optional 2.3-liter engine that pumps out 285 hp and 305 lb.-ft. of torque. The big upgrade for the Lincoln in 2016 is the new Sync 3 infotainment system. It represents a huge leap forward in mobile connectivity.
