Safety Comparison

The CR-V EX/EX-L/Touring has standard Collision Mitigation Braking System, which use forward mounted sensors to warn the driver of a possible collision ahead. If the driver doesn’t react and the system determines a collision is imminent, it automatically applies the brakes at full-force in order to reduce the force of the crash or avoid it altogether. The MKC offers an available collision warning system without the automated brake feature which would prevent or reduce the collision if the driver fails to react.

Both the CR-V and the MKC have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front wheel drive, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, rearview cameras, available all wheel drive, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, rear cross-path warning and driver alert monitors.

For its top level performance in all IIHS frontal, side, rear impact and roof-crush tests, with its optional front crash prevention system, and its available headlight’s “Acceptable” rating, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety grants the CR-V its highest rating: “Top Pick Plus” for 2017, a rating granted to only 54 vehicles tested by the IIHS. The MKC has not been fully tested, yet, but doesn’t qualify for 2017 “Top Pick.”

Warranty Comparison

Suspension and Handling Comparison

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the CR-V is .6 inches wider in the front and 1.1 inches wider in the rear than the track on the MKC.

The CR-V Touring AWD handles at .81 G’s, while the MKC AWD pulls only .80 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

For better maneuverability, the CR-V’s turning circle is .6 feet tighter than the MKC’s (37.4 feet vs. 38 feet).

Chassis Comparison

The Honda CR-V may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 500 to 550 pounds less than the Lincoln MKC.

As tested by Car and Driver while at idle, the interior of the CR-V Touring AWD is quieter than the MKC AWD (40 vs. 43 dB).

Passenger Space Comparison

The CR-V has 8 cubic feet more passenger volume than the MKC (105.9 vs. 97.9).

The CR-V has .5 inches more front headroom, .7 inches more front hip room, 1.9 inches more front shoulder room, .5 inches more rear headroom, 3.6 inches more rear legroom and .3 inches more rear shoulder room than the MKC.

Cargo Capacity Comparison

The CR-V has a much larger cargo area with its rear seat up than the MKC with its rear seat up (39.2 vs. 25.2 cubic feet). The CR-V has a much larger cargo area with its rear seat folded than the MKC with its rear seat folded (75.8 vs. 53.1 cubic feet).

Pressing a switch automatically lowers the CR-V’s rear seats, to make changing between passengers and cargo easier. The MKC doesn’t offer automatic folding seats.

Ergonomics Comparison

The CR-V has a standard locking fuel door with a remote release located convenient to the driver. A locking fuel door helps prevent vandalism, such as sugar in the tank and fuel theft. The MKC doesn’t offer a locking fuel door.
