Cross town rivals. Cadillac may not see Lincoln as a direct competitor but I think the MKC has something to say about that. MKC Base MSRP is $33K while you ned an extra 4K to hop into an entry level SRX.
Lincoln wins hands down on design in this battle I think. The front end of the Cadillac looks terrible, and the back end isn't great either. The Cadillac looks good from the side except for the front end, so really it doesn't.
Feels nice to say good things about Lincoln and see it winning some battles against Cadillac.
I think that Cadillac design language just doesn't lend itself well to SUV/CUV type vehicles. The angular and pointed lights just don't work when the body of the vehicle is that big. The back end of the MKC with its coll metal molding technique thing is awesome too.
