About Lincoln MKC

Lincoln’s 2017 MKC compact-luxury SUV may be the company’s best effort to date. Although it shares a common architecture with the Ford Escape, the MKC shares little else. With its own distinct styling, interior and amenities, the 2017 Lincoln MKC exudes a youthful and cool vibe, something that has eluded Lincoln vehicles of late and is a welcome change. The 2017 Lincoln MKC small-luxury-crossover SUV has a rather substantial feel, placing it in the same league as the Audi Q3, Mercedes-Benz GLA and BMW X1. With a choice of two turbocharged 4-cylinder engines, the MKC offers more choice than the Acura RDX and Land Rover Evoque, and even the new Cadillac XT5, which offers only a single V6.

"I drove every luxury SUV on the Market over the past two years searching both for my wife (2012 BMW X 3) and myself. I have driven my MKC 3500 miles and love it. Best HID headlights and entry lights I have seen,dashboard is attractive and push button gearshift both saves room and looks great. Be sure and get the Lincoln drive control. With it the car rides comparable to my 2008 Avalon even though it is an SUV and a foot and a half shorter. The best thing about this car is Lincoln made all options available and did not try to up sell me to a larger model to get every conceivable option. I got everything on mine. My wife cannot believe my MKC is as peppy as her BMW and drives smoother. The technology is incredible. The Navigation and Lincoln touch system are state of the art and user friendly. Large easy to read screen. The car even tells me if it thinks I need a rest. Backup camera easy to use. Blind spot safety feature very useful. Automatic dimming of the headlights , cross traffic alert, etc among the options I find very useful. I also love the styling and the interior is well done. I would recommend this car highly. I think it sets the bar in the small SUV market."

"Wife's car but I get to drive it when I've been good!! Seriously though, bought a 2017 MKC after my wife was in a major car accident that sent the car rolling 6 times!! Car was totaled! The safety systems and air bags deployed and kept her secure as the car rolled. Suffered only slight concussion and major bruises but if you saw what was left of the car you'd ask if anyone survived!! The outside of the car was badly damaged but the inside was intact!!! Thank you Lincoln engineers and designers!!! We went out and immediately bought the 2017 version and love it!!! Know first hand how it will perform in an accident! For me the car is a lot of fun to drive especially in Sport mode!!"

"I bought my 2015 Lincoln MKC used and have owned it 2 weeks and put approximately 1,000 miles on it including a round trip road trip and daily commuting to and from work. I really like this little SUV and wish I had test driven one earlier. I found an almost completely loaded “Reserve” model with lots of nice options including a Technology Package. Mine has the 2.0 eco boost engine and is FWD. I’m 54, 6’ and 190#’s – I just give this as reference so you know who is reviewing the vehicle. I have owned many vehicles from domestics, imports, sedans, coupes, and full size SUVs. I have owned several of the newer iteration Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit’s – I really loved my 2013 but was not as impressed with my 2015 so I sold it and began my search for another vehicle. Recently, I test drove (all used but newer) Mercedes GLK, Audi Q5, and a Cadillac SRX. I really wanted to like all of these cars but for one reason or another did not feel right in them. I realize that there are lots of personal preferences that go into a car decision- that’s why there are so many choices! So I was searching and found the Lincoln MKC at a dealership and decided to check it out – I really didn’t think I was going to like it. First impression, the exterior styling and fit and finish on the MKC is very good; it is a very solid looking vehicle. The interior- very nice. Again, fit and finish and materials used are very good. Not only do they look good, the interior is very attractive – it looks much better in person than in pictures. Driver and front passenger’s seats – very comfortable and contouring to the body. The leather is very supple and feels like very good quality. I did not think I would like the ‘push button’ gear selector but if frees up for more storage space and it’s actually kind of cool. Took the MKC for a road test and again, super impressed. So, I bought it! Here are the things I really like about this car: 1) The fit and finish and materials used are all very good. The MKC I bought had 21,000 miles on it and I hear no creaks, squeaks, or unwanted noises! 2) the vehicle is very comfortable and quiet 3) The ride is very nice and smooth- it feels like you are in a much bigger vehicle. If you want a little more responsiveness, however, the ‘sport’ mode gives you just that – the sport mode is definitely more fun to drive in. 4) acceleration for this vehicle is amazing to have a 2.0 turbo engine – the engine is refined and quiet 5) in the short time I have owned it, with a combo of around town and interstate driving, I am averaging right at 27 miles per gallon 6) Lots of nice features, great stereo, pano roof, lots of tech stuff, voice activated tech, heated and cooled seats 7) decent utility for a small SUV Some things you may not like: 1) this is an overall fairly small SUV – I’m 6’ and find it plenty accommodating for me. 2) The back seat space is fairly limited – if you are car pooling or taking adult size children around, it may be too small. 3) If you truly need and SUV for hauling some cargo and lots of stuff in the back, again, this one is on the small side. 4) The tech and navigation takes a little bit to get used to, but it is not bad. If you are in the market for a smaller SUV, I highly recommend you test drive a Lincoln MKC; I have been pleasantly surprised."
