Compare: Lincoln MKC vs Acura RDX

Lincoln MKC Mayfield Heights 

Lincoln MKC VS the Competition in Mayfield Heights, OH

If you're someone who appreciates choices, the Lincoln MKC has three trim levels to decide between, but none of them have a starting MSRP over $40,000, which is a huge bonus in the luxury segment:

  • Premiere 100A trim-With this trim you get everything a luxury SUV really needs in order to call itself luxury-Heated side-view mirrors, integrated blind spot mirrors, a Reverse Sensing System, and a Power Liftgate are some of the standouts on the list of features you can expect to enjoy with this entry-level trim!
  • Select 200A trim-Climbing up to the next trim, you'll be treated to even more luxury, safety offerings, and convenience features. For example, instead of high-quality cloth upholstery, you'll now see standard leather-trimmed seats, which are also 10-way power adjustable and heated for the driver and front passenger. There are other touches of excellence, such as genuine wood trim and ambient interior lighting, as well as a power tilt/telescoping steering column with a memory feature for further personalization and convenience.
  • Reserve 300A-If you're looking for unparalleled luxury, this top-tier trim gives it to you. Enjoy the great outdoors from the even greater indoors with a standard Panoramic Vista Roof; stay safe and alert with standard BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert; give yourself a hand with the hands-free power liftgate; and for those who want to stay connected, especially on the road, there's even an embedded modem to take advantage of

Of course, these are only some of the features you can enjoy on the Lincoln MKC-but before we go too far, let's take a moment to consider the competition-that's only fair. Below you'll find a comparison of the Lincoln MKC and the Acura RDX for drivers from Mayfield Heights, Cleveland, Kent, Mentor, and Middleburg Heights to use as they research their next luxury SUV.

How it All Stacks Up-the Lincoln MKC Goes Head-to-Head with the Acura RDX

When you sidle the Acura RDX up next to the Lincoln MKC, we know the differences between them will become apparent, glaring even.

  • Right off the starting line, the Lincoln MKC arrives with a base-MSRP about two grand below the $35,370 base-MSRP of the Acura RDX, though the two are comparably equipped with FWD. There's two thousand small reasons right off the bat to feel warmly about the MKC.
  • In terms of convenience and safety, the Lincoln MKC gives you the Rear Parking Aid and Rearview Camera as standard equipment-in the Acura RDX, you'll get the Rearview Camera, but the Rear Parking Aid will cost you extra!
  • And hopefully you don't have any tall friends or family if you're going for the Acura RDX, because it falls short of the Lincoln MKC in terms of front Head Room, Front Leg Room, and Second-Row Head Room, even though both SUVs seat five passengers. Sounds comfortable, huh?
