Crossover SUVs are vehicles that have it all, the style and handling of sports cars with the practical and rugged features you get from a bigger truck.
They’re perfect for navigating city streets, no matter how adverse the road conditions, or for hauling a full trunk through unpaved country roads — you’ll arrive safely and in style no matter where you’re going.
The devil is in the details, so let’s take a look at two SUV luxury crossovers and see how the Cadillac XT4 compares to the Lincoln MKC 2019.
The Cadillac XT4 is a brand new luxury crossover SUV, offered for the first time in 2019. There are three trims available — Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport. Each one comes with a suite of generous amenities and is filled with modern technological safety features.
Every XT4 comes with rear park assist, phone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, HD Rear Vision Camera, selectable drives modes, and more. The leg-room in the back seats is best in class, and speaks to the generous spaciousness overall.
The XT4 delivers a 237-horsepower 258lb-ft of torque, and comes standard with a 9-speed automatic transmission. You have a choice between front wheel drive and all wheel drive. The design of every XT4 will blow you away, both the inside and out. The interior has the generous space you’d expect of a Cadillac, and seats so comfortable you won’t want to leave when the ride is over!
Between all the power under the hood, the luxuriously appointed interior and style throughout, the XT4 lives up Cadillac’s legendary reputation for quality.
Lincoln MKC 2019
The Lincoln MKC 2019 premium crossover SUV comes available in a 285-horsepower 2.3L twin-scroll turbocharged engine that delivers 305 lb-ft of torque. The design is based on the Ford Escape, with additional luxurious designs thrown in the mix. It’s spacious, elegant, and has the kick you’ll like when you need to overtake a truck on the highway.
The Lincoln MKC also has a suite of modern safety features, such as smart All Wheel Drive. There are sensors which monitor traction constantly, so the front and rear wheels always have the torque they need to handle roads in slippery or adverse conditions. Its electronic stability system provides additional control for when roads are slick, or for gravel country roads.
Automatic Emergency Braking helps avoid or reduce the severity of traffic accidents. There are supports to help prevent front crashes with over vehicles or even pedestrians, such as alerts with an audible alarm and visual warning light, or even active braking, if the driver fails to respond in time.
Beyond safety, the Lincoln MKC 2019 has sumptuously luxurious technology that’s simply dazzling. When you approach the vehicle, with the fob in your possession, the vehicle senses your approach. Exterior lights brighten, door handle pockets glow with soft light. Once in the car, the sideview mirrors automatically unfold, and warm ambient light glows.
Both of these crossover SUVs boast impressive features. Book your test drive today, because there’s just no substitute for actually driving — the details that you read about only come alive when you’re behind the wheel.
