There is something refreshing about the 2016 Lincoln MKX, especially when noting that we are living in an era where high-end car manufacturers would need to pile on the complexities (needless or otherwise) into their vehicles. This particular premium mid-sized SUV is takes another route in terms of high-end driving as this is a simpler, and more straightforward vehicles than a lot of its rivals in the sector.
The 2016 Lincoln MKX Brings a Simpler Approach to Being Premium
The 2016 Lincoln MKX has an automatic-transmission that can be operated with the use of buttons. Said buttons are easily accessible as they are located on the dashboard, and they are clearly laid out (D for Drive, N for Neutral, etc.). There are also icons found on the infotainment system that are conveniently arranged in four quadrants, and it has knobs for those who don’t want to solely rely on a touchscreen interface.
Even though the controls are simply laid out and they do not look like an airplane cockpit with all the levers, flashing lights, knobs, and buttons, it still has a luxury feel despite its overall simplicity. This Lincoln MKX has a cabin that is swaddled in leather and real wood. There are also nice touches found inside the cabin that do come off as standard equipment. Even its options scream high-end but are the designs are not too overly eccentric. For instance, there is the heated steering wheel and the seats are heated as well. Other features worth mentioning are the around-view, a 19-speaker audio system, and a 360-degree camera. For the ladies, they will appreciate the hutch found underneath the center console. This is a perfect place to stow your purses, and they are within easy reach. Furthermore, the compartment is mostly protected from prying eyes.
But since the 2016 Lincoln MKX is a high-end vehicle, do take note that this does not come cheap. The base model can already make your bank account cry, and the options can make it hurt even more. However, it doesn’t mean that you only get the vehicle when you purchase it as Lincoln tries to turn ownership into something akin to a VIP club experience. Owners will be able to enjoy special treatment at certain dealerships. These include free car washes, scheduled maintenance, and if you fancy a dinner for two at a fancy restaurant, that can also be included. Overall, if there is a phrase that would clearly define this certain car, it would be “everything is easy to find.”
