2015 Acura RDX vs. 2015 Lincoln MKC Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Acura RDX offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Lincoln MKC. The Lincoln MKC will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Acura RDX.

Convenience
The Acura RDX requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln MKC, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Acura RDX or the Lincoln MKC, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Acura RDX and the Lincoln MKC have similar Destination Charges.

The Acura RDX is about the same width as the Lincoln MKC. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Acura RDX, which is slightly longer than the Lincoln MKC.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Acura RDX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln MKC.

Handling
The Acura RDX has a larger turning radius than the Lincoln MKC, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Lincoln MKC is clearly the choice over the Acura RDX for pulling heavy loads. The Acura RDX has a little less horsepower than the Lincoln MKC.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Acura RDX and the Lincoln MKC. The Acura RDX has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Lincoln MKC.
