Safety  - 2011 Lincoln MKX Review - Reviews - Lincoln MKX

The MKX has the standard slate of six airbags, stability control and, as part of some option packages, blindspot monitoring.

The 2011 MKX earned the top score, Good, in frontal, side and rear crash tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It received the second best score, Acceptable, in roof-strength tests, keeping it from being an IIHS Top Safety Pick, a vaunted designation.

The federal government has not yet crash-tested the MKX.
