What to Choose When Top-Quality is Your Benchmark? The New Volvo XC40 vs. the Lincoln MKC

When you're taking your first steps into the world of luxury vehicles, it can be difficult to know what vehicle to choose. Volvo makes that task a bit easier with SUVs like the 2019 Volvo XC40.

The smallest and most affordable SUV in the automaker's lineup, the XC40 offers the performance of a great SUV and the appointment of a luxury car with a price tag that's in the reach of more modest drivers. With great style and a superior selection of much-loved features, it offers one of the finest packages in its segment.

That's not to say it's the only car of its kind worth driving, however. Let's look at how it compares to one of its competitors: the 2018 Lincoln MKC.
