2009 Lincoln MKX Review

The 2009 Lincoln MKX offers a refined, smooth ride and is filled with luxury features. However, it still doesn't match the interior refinement of its top competitors.

Pros & Cons

  • Decent power
  • Attractive looks
  • Impressive list of standard features
  • Cheap-feeling interior materials
  • Drives like the less expensive Ford Edge

2009 Lincoln MKX Overview

In general, reviewers said the 2009 Lincoln MKX is a good crossover. It’s spacious, its interior is comfortable and well-designed and it has enough power for most drivers. However, test drivers said that the MKX doesn’t handle particularly well, and its interior can’t compete with more refined offerings from other luxury brands. Critics noted cheap-feeling interior materials, although most agreed that the MKX has an attractive interior design.

The five-seat 2009 Lincoln MKX comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine and either front- or all-wheel drive. In front-wheel drive, this crossover gets fuel economy that’s about average for the class, with an EPA-estimated 17/24 mpg city/highway. When equipped with all-wheel drive, the MKX gets 15/22 mpg. Some testers noted that taller drivers may not have enough headroom, thanks to the MKX’s sloping roofline.

When it was new, many reviewers said that a fully-loaded 2009 Ford Edge came close to matching the MKX’s long list of standard features. The voice-activated Sync infotainment system, a power liftgate, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, heated and ventilated front seats, leather and satellite radio are all standard on the 2009 MKX. Optional features when the MKX was new included a panoramic moonroof, heated rear seats, navigation, larger wheels and a rear-seat entertainment system.

Other Cars to Consider

For a well-rounded luxury crossover, reviewers agreed that it’s hard to beat the 2009 Lexus RX 350. The Lexus RX is one of the best luxury crossovers you can buy thanks to its interior refinement, quiet cabin and especially smooth, comfortable ride. It also offers a hybrid model in case you’re concerned about fuel economy.

You should also consider the 2009 Buick Enclave. Buick isn’t a luxury brand like Lincoln or Lexus, but the Enclave is a fantastic choice for a crossover SUV. It offers seven seats rather than the MKX’s five seats, but those seats are actually adult-sized, which is a rarity in the class. Plus, the Enclave comes with lots of standard features and offers a particularly quiet, upscale cabin for an affordable SUV.
