The Lincoln MKC likely doesn’t come first to mind for a great deal of consumers. It’s only been out for a few years, and it’s just recently that Lincoln has been making more of an effort to raise the quality of its vehicles and perceived brand name cachet. However take a look and you could extremely well be impressed with exactly what Lincoln has actually cooked up.
2018 Lincoln MKC Design
The basics are definitely covered well in the 2018 Lincoln MKC. It offers a peaceful cabin, a smooth ride quality and substantial list of standard features. The MKC is less costly than many competing crossovers, too. Comfortable and inexpensive– for a lot of crossover SUV consumers, that’s going to be an enticing mix.
Dig much deeper, however, and you’ll find the MKC isn’t really as refined as some rival crossovers. The MKC’s rear seats and freight area are small, and some of the interior products do not look or feel really premium. Performance is a little frustrating despite the fact that the MKC’s power output looks good on the spec sheet. We’re also dissatisfied that Lincoln restricts the schedule of the MKC’s innovative motorist aids, such as forward crash caution and mitigation, to the most pricey trim levels.
2018 Lincoln MKC Features
For 2018 Lincoln MKC gets Lincoln Connect, Lincoln’s 4G Wi-Fi hotspot system, included basic to all trims. Best models get four-way power lumbar control on the chauffeur seat, while both front seats take advantage of the power lumbar on Select trims and higher.
2018 Lincoln MKC Trim Levels
The 2018 Lincoln MKC is a five-passenger compact luxury SUV offered in four trims/equipment groups. The base trim, Premiere, still provides competitive technology features. The Select trim includes benefit features, while Reserve and Black Label increase high-end and post-sales assistance. Requirement on all trims is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (240 horsepower, 270 pound-feet of torque) mated to a six-speed automated and front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional, as is a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder (285 hp, 305 lb-ft) that is readily available only on Select, Reserve and Black Label trims.
Of all the variations offered, we would advise the MKC Select. It has an ample quantity of technology, convenience, convenience and high-end devices while keeping the price sensible. It’s also the very first trim offered with the optional adaptive suspension. Simply be aware that if you want innovative chauffeur help such as adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning, you’ll need to spring for the more expensive Reserve or Black Label.
