According to a recent piece by automotive website Edmunds.com, the 2016 Lincoln MKX is one of the safest SUVs on the road. With both IIHS Top Safety Pick+ and an NHTSA 5 star rating, there is a lot of data to back up that claim. If you’re in the market for a premium SUV, this Lincoln is definitely one to consider.

The 2016 Lincoln MKX is an all new vehicle having been redesigned from the ground up. It received a new engine, new body, new design, new adaptive suspension, new interior and just about every element within the cabin. There are improvements across the board, with a great motor, better materials, stronger value, a quieter cabin and much better build quality. The improvements completely transformed the MKX for the better.

2016 Lincoln MKX
The 2016 Lincoln MKX is a premium SUV for the discerning buyer. The new model elevates the driving and owning experience by a significant margin and has gone down very well with reviewers and owners alike.

The design is big and beefy but also sleek. It’s a nice design that both illustrates and disguises the size of this vehicle. The Lincoln grille up front is subtle, with LED lighting showing you the way. Body panels are rounded and simple, with just a little fluting on each to offer enough interest without getting too busy.

Inside the cabin, you definitely know it’s a Lincoln. Materials are nice, finishing is excellent, insulation is incredible and the comfort is sublime. Inside the 2016 Lincoln MKX really is a nice place to be. The driving position is great, with everything within reach and the new Sync 3 system is working exceptionally well.

Driving the MKX is one of two engines. There’s a 3.7-litre V6 that delivers 303 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque and a 2.7-litre V6 that delivers 335 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque thanks to a turbocharger. Both utilize a six speed automatic transmission that sends power to the front or all wheels. Both engines are powerful, refined and perfectly matched to the transmission.

As you would expect from Lincoln, trim levels are luxurious. All include lots of standard safety tech, which is why the 2016 Lincoln MKX received Top Safety Pick+ and NHTSA 5 star rating. Other features include heated and ventilated seats, parking aids, automatic lighting, front parking sensors, 360 degree cameras and Revel premium audio systems.
