Drivers shopping in the luxury crossover or SUV segment have refined tastes, and are likely comparing the 2015 Acura RDX vs. the 2015 Lincoln MKC. The RDX is a show-stopping model at Joe Rizza Acura, and we know all the ways it outclasses its competitors like the MKC. You’ll see that the RDX far surpasses the MKC in performance, standard features, and overall luxury.

RDX is Powerful and Capable

If a utility vehicle is what fulfills your driving requirements, then performance is high on the list of your needs. While both base models are equipped with front wheel drive, the Acura RDX dominates over the MKC when it comes to power and ability. The Acura model has a standard 3.5L SOHC i-VTEC® V6 engine, which affords a generous 273 hp. The Lincoln model, on the other hand, comes with a standard 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder engine for a lesser 240 hp. The Acura model also has a 16 gallon fuel tank capacity to offer, while the Lincoln model falls short with 15.5 gallons. Finally, the ultra capable RDX has a maximum trailering capacity of 1500 lbs—Lincoln has not offered this information for the MKC.

Upscale Standard Features

As you would expect in a luxury utility vehicle, both models are outfitted with a myriad of features including multi-zone air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, and heated mirrors. The 2015 RDX enhances the driving experience with a universal garage door opener, and Acura’s premium 10-speaker sound system co-designed by Grammy® award-winning recording engineer, Elliot Scheiner. With multiple speakers, an 8-inch subwoofer, and two tweeters, you’ll be able to listen to your favorite music the way it’s heard in the recording studio.

Where the MKC Lacks, the RDX Excels

The interior quality of the Lincoln MKC is far lacking compared to the Acura RDX, falling short on comfort, luxury, and sport-tuned design. It’s a major disappointment to drivers, as the interior is a substantial component of luxury vehicles. The RDX came through for drivers though, lining their seats with leather trim that’s breathable due to unique perforations. They’re also plush and supportive, on par with luxury sport sedans. Overall, the Acura model is the stylish and sporty utility vehicle that drivers want in this segment. Drivers of the RDX will also enjoy:

  • Dual-level heaters in both front seats
  • 10-way power adjustable driver’s seat with 2 memory settings
  • Power lumbar adjustment for long adventures
  • 4-way power adjustable front passenger’s seat
