When it comes to midsize crossover vehicles, shoppers are opting for the Cadillac SRX over the Lincoln MKX by a ratio of better than two to one, and the Lincoln continues to lose ground. That trend perplexes us. A tightly built vehicle with a roomy, attractive cabin, excellent fit and finish, and decent handling and acceleration, the MKX is much improved for 2011. The engine is more powerful than before, fuel economy is better, and the interior is much more upscale. Sure, it costs more than the hot-selling Cadillac SRX, and it still looks too much like the more downscale Ford Edge, but it deserves more respect than it's getting. If you're considering the SRX, or the top-selling Lexus RX 350, be sure to test-drive the MKX before buying.
