2018 Lincoln MKT vs. 2018 Acura RDX

The Lincoln MKT Goes Head to Head with the Acura RDX

If you're looking for a capable crossover, you know the choices can be overwhelming. It's a large market and the diversity of the vehicles is always increasing. We already know that the Lincoln MKT is one of the strongest choices on the market, but we understand that our customers may want to weight their options. A comparable crossover is the Acura RDX. We have spent time researching both vehicles and wanted to share our findings. Look below and compare, we are confident that you will fall in love with what the Lincoln MKT brings to the table.

Performance

The Lincoln MKT puts you in control of the road. With an available Twin-Turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine you can crank out 365 horsepower with 350 lb.-feet of torque. This engine allows the MKT to accelerate and cruise like a much smaller car. It doesn't sacrifice fuel efficiency either, the MKT is conservative with its fuel, allowing you to stay on the road longer than most crossovers at its size.

The Acura RDX drives well on the road, but it doesn't quite stack up to the capability of the Lincoln MKT; the 3.5-liter V6 engine produces 279 horsepower and 252 lb.-feet of torque.

Luxury Features

The Lincoln name is synonymous with luxury, and the MKT is no exception. The SYNC 3 is the centerpiece of an intelligent middle console. It offers voice recognition, an approachable layout, and AppLink software to voice-control many of your favorite mobile apps. This allows you to use all of your media devices and apps safely and easily.

The interior is gorgeously designed and has a perfect combination of old-school sensibility with forward-looking luxury. With several seating configurations and standard leather trim, the interior will impress you at first glance. You won't know if you're in a car or in an executive's office.

The RDX makes a solid showing with a sleek looking interior and a solid media system, but it just can't put everything together as seamlessly as the Lincoln.

Safety Features

When it comes to Crossover SUVs, most people want something that will help them carry their children or other passengers around. That is why we know that safety is valued at a high premium in this class. The manufacturers at Lincoln know this too, which is why they ensured the MKT showcases a large variety of safety features.

The MKT comes with standard Curve Control, an enhancement that helps you reduce your speed when you come around a curve too quickly, this is really helpful in helping you avoid accidents. Also standard is the Safety Canopy System, a feature that deploys side-curtain airbags to provide head protection to passengers next to a window.

Available features include a blind spot information system that alerts you when drivers are in your blind spot or approaching quickly from behind. The available Lane-Keeping System alerts you when you appear to be drifting out of your lane. This is incredibly helpful, as even though we may not admit it, drifting out of a lane is a very common mistake that we are all guilty of.

The RDX has good safety features, however the available advanced features in the Lincoln help put it over the top.
