The 2020 Lincoln MKX is the bottom trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that features 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Lincoln MKX Safety Sense, which is really a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the following rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.

Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and you will find modest door pockets in the front and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Lincoln MKX features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.

It’s quite simple to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and easily accessible lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough room so that the front seat do not need to be scooted all the way forward.
