Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Each engine provides stimulating responses. While the base engine provides appropriate power for an Lincoln MKC, the 285-horsepower upgrade ratchets up performance to a level that almost seems out of character for a compact crossover SUV.

Available only with all-wheel drive, the 2.3-liter powertrain would be the logical choice for steep-terrain journeys, imparting an extra layer of confidence. Although the automatic transmission delivers engine power effectively, its pushbutton-type gear selector never seems fully intuitive. Other Lincoln MKC controls, fortunately, are easier to operate.

Competent, composed road manners are no surprise from Lincoln. Ride and handling compare favorably to others in its category, including rivals from German automakers.

Available continuously controlled dampers can provide several levels of stiffness. Sport setting may feel somewhat firm, but the Lincoln MKC clings tenaciously to the pavement, with minimal body lean through curves.

Unfortunately, mode selections aren’t so intuitive, demanding use of the pushbutton shifter or steering-wheel control. Sport mode requires one push of the S button. A second push yields semi-manual mode. A semi-buried series of menus must be used to customize suspension operation. Still, the adjustable suspension beats the base setup at smoothing out rough spots.

Fuel economy is reasonable for a luxury crossover, though reaching EPA estimates in real-world driving is a challenge. With front-wheel drive, the 2.0-liter base model is EPA-rated at 21/28 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive lowers the estimate significantly, to 19/25/21 mpg (22 mpg Combined with Stop/Start system operating). An Lincoln MKC with the 2.3-liter engine is EPA-rated slightly lower at 18/25 mpg City/Highway, or 20 mpg Combined.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Even though it’s based on the Ford Escape, Lincoln’s compact crossover shares few appearance elements with its less-costly cousin.

Developed as a pleasing blend of relatively soft lines and sharp creases, the Lincoln MKC exterior ranks slightly above average. The split wing grille should be familiar from all Lincoln SUVs. Some similarities to Ford’s Escape can be discerned in the Lincoln MKC profile. Lincoln’s bulbous back end is not among them.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

More impressive inside than its starting price might suggest, the Lincoln MKC provides a luxury-car experience. The Lincoln MKC cabin feels bigger than it is, numerically.

Front occupants get a taste of elegant simplicity. High-quality materials run the gamut from merely nice to nearly decadent, accented by wood.

Base-model seats wear synthetic leather and cloth upholstery. Black Label versions escalate to Venetian leather and an Alcantara headliner. Bridge of Weir leather goes into Reserve trim.

Front-seat occupants can expect a quiet, refined experience, on seats that are both spacious and supple. Side bolstering is limited, but its lack is notable only during intense drives.

Back-seat passengers are less fortunate, facing a cramped bench. Adults may be short on legroom as well as head clearance. At 36.8 inches, rear legroom is impeded by sizable front seats. Outboard seating positions are adequately sculpted, but cushioning is limited. The available dual-pane sunroof cuts into headroom, too.

Split-folding rear seats expand the cargo area from 25.2 cubic feet with seatbacks upright, to 53.1 cubic feet when they’re folded.

Sync 3 infotainment is satisfying, compared to prior systems. Active noise cancellation keeps unwanted sounds under control.


New Car Test Drive

Lincoln’s Lincoln MKC offers plenty of amenities, though the brand’s cachet doesn’t match that of some European and Asian manufacturers. Good standard equipment is offset by less-than-ideal safety ratings. Styling is less daring than that of Lincoln sedans, but elegance awaits inside. All told, the Lincoln MKC represents good value, though an abundantly fitted Black Label edition can top $50,000.
