When you want that luxury car experience with enough space for the whole family, then the 2017 Acura MDX and 2017 Lincoln MKC are great picks. These popular SUVs provide all the practical features you need with the fun extras that you want. But which one is the better pick for everyday travels? We compared the 2017 Acura MDX Base and 2017 Lincoln MKC Select in categories that concern the modern driver. Read on to find out which SUV provides the most bang for your buck!


If you want an athletic vehicle, then the new Acura MDX is the car for you. Its 3.5L V6 generates an impressive 290 hp on the road while still maintaining a 12.7 L/100km fuel economy in the city. The 2017 Lincoln MKC Select can’t quite compare with its 2.0L I-4 engine, delivering only 240 hp. If that’s not enough, the MDX is equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission to the MKC’s six-speed automatic. This means the MDX offers a more powerful, smoother ride than the MKC.


Whether hauling boxes of cargo or a full cabin of passengers, Acura’s MDX provides more breathing room. The MDX has 2,575L of maximum interior cargo volume compared to the paltry 1,504L of the MKC. As for passenger volume, the Acura MDX seats seven passengers with 3,747L of space. The Lincoln MKC seats five passengers with 2,772L of space. The MDX is simply the more spacious vehicle.

Convenience Features

The 2017 Acura MDX has a few extra features that the 2017 Lincoln MKC can’t quite match. For example, the MDX has a rear air conditioner with separate controls. This means every passenger can customize their climate for individualized comfort. Passengers in the MKC have no such luck. The MKC also lacks the automatic distance pacing feature, while the MDX conveniently integrates it into the cruise control function. The MDX also offers AcuraWatch as standard across its lineup for a suite of driver assistance technologies like Forward Collision Warning, while a comparable suite is only an available package on higher MKC trims.
