I've had my new MKC for just over a month now and I've driven it about 4000 miles I especially like the comfort of the ride on the quality that I see in the vehicle. The only negative I have is the size of the gas tank at 15 gallons it's way too small for this vehicle This crossover has exceptional pick up and I find it hard to believe that it's only a four cylinder I'm very happy with my purchase The main reason I chose this vehicle was a technology that it offers. I Felt that it was way ahead of the Cadillac SRX that I was comparing it to that it was faster and more up-to-date especially when it comes to interior styling and technology advancements I particularly enjoy the Lane keeping system as it even steers me back into my lane should I be drifting and not notice it. The adaptive cruise control is a great feature and I particular like setting it faster than the car I would like to follow and letting The adaptive cruise control adapt my speed to the car in front of me. Then when I choose to pass all I have to do is pull into the other lane and I speed right by the guy without ever touching the gas. Another great feature is the My key feature which actually allows me to set it so that when a programmed key is used the driver using that key cannot exceed a certain speed limit or radio volume that I have preset for that key user. Another great technology feature is the app that when used with my smart phone allows me to start the car from anywhere including as the air plane is landing so that it's ready and warmed up when I get to it. Heated seats are a great feature but the cooled seat feature is even a better feature. Yes I truly am happy with this vehicle and would recommend it to a friend but more than that I think Lincoln it started to change how it's brand will be seen in the future.

Impressive Luxury from Lincoln?

My wife and I have put about 1200 miles so far on our Lincoln MKC. I have to say I've been pretty impressed, initially I hadn't considered Lincoln and was skeptical when my spouse wanted to look. The MKC is not the same old Lincoln offerings. It feels significantly premium and unique. I have the 2.0 AWD in Reserve Trim with Climate Package and 19" rims. Pros: The interior with the upgraded leather, rosewood accents, and lighting elements (welcome mat, HID, LED). The performance is spirited with the 2.0 or 2.3 (also test drove). The active noise cancellation (extremely quiet car from the inside). Ride quality is surprisingly adept. Sport mode feels very car like, not quite sports sedan, but not CUV either. Comfort is a bit spongy for my taste (maybe old hat Lincoln?). Cons: Could stand to be larger in the rear seats and trunk. I kind of wish they would have axed the MKX and stretched this platform. I suppose that will be coming. The lighting in the trunk really needs an overhead light or at least one additional side light for visibility. With the Vista Roof you cannot attach a roof rack (for now at least, maybe a future accessory will change that). Memory functions could be more inclusive (separate infotainment and climate preferences could be stored). It would be nice if it had surround cameras like some of the competitors (rear camera is present). Recommendation: I would skip the 2.3 engine. The performance wasn't that different, the extra fuel economy of the 2.0 is nice, and it can tow 1000 more pounds than the 2.3 (I don't know why). I didn't add the THX audio, but in hindsight I probably would. If you live in the city the driver assistant package may help (self parking, and self drive out of parking). You owe it to yourself to make sure you include the updated leather. It's amazingly good and puts my colleagues 2014 BMW X5 interior to shame. It's a small vehicle, but surprisingly versatile. We thought we'd need a bigger vehicle at first, but reconsidered after playing with the available space (Tow Package was necessary though). Research: We cross-shoped this vehicle with the Audi Q5 TDI, Range Rover Evoque, Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel, Ford Edge, Ford Explorer Sport, and Lexus RX 350.

I have had my MKC for a little over a year and absolutely love it. The styling is very distinct from other car brands that it makes you really stick out whether its date night, grocery shopping or going to work. The back seat however is a little crowded, but I rarely haul anybody around back there besides my dog. I test drove every other luxury compact SUV, and the MKC by far beat them with value for your money. Oh, and it rides like a CLOUD. I've taken it on many roadtrips, even drove 16+ hours straight, and never felt uncomfortable. If/when I get my new MKC, I will pay the extra for the larger 2.3L engine to get more "oomf" out of it. Many of my friends have drove it, and it is always hard to get it back from them! Finally, Lincoln is making a come back and I couldn't be more excited.

I have owned and rode in several high end luxury cars and this car's cabin is second only in quietness to an S-Class. That is the reason we bought this car. My wife wanted a quite car for the road. At city driving speeds cars around you are inaudible. At highway speeds only the wind is apparent in the background, but no noise from the tires. This car is not a re-branded Ford because after driving the escape it is readily apparent the amount of time Lincoln placed on sound denting material. The ride is super cushioned. If you live in a city with perfect roads than do yourself a favor and get the Q5 because that car's handling is awesome, but if you live in a typical large city with bar roads you need to get the Lincoln. I test drove the RX, Q5, Q7, and the GLK, no other car can handle pot holes like this champ. That said, knee room in the back is tight. In my opinion head room in the back seat is fine. The back bench in our MKC is reclined a bit to allow for more comfortable seating and that seems to have been a solution for long hauls with people in the back seat. The information system on this car is second to none. It is 2014, I do not understand the refusal of the Germans to use touch screens. However, the responsiveness and ease of use out of the great size screen in this car is amazing. Tha said, you have to get use to the amount of pressure you need to use on the screen as it is different from a smart phone. Do yourself a favor and test drive this car at night time, its technology really shines at night with its ridiculously customizable lighting, together with the brightest head lamps in its class. My only complaint is that I did not test drive the car I bought at night, and this thing as so many led lighting features that I did not notice that one of them was out until after my first night with the car. For the money, in this segment, this car is second to none. However, if you are old and do not know how to use a smartphone, this car's technology will be too overwhelming for you. Do yourself a favor and test drive this beast at night and you will get where I am coming from.

I love this little SUV.The body is solid and gives a quiet ride.. It is just as peppy as my wife's X3. With Lincoln Drive Control option it drives as smooth as large sedan like the 2008 Avalon which I traded in. Both the exterior HID lighting and interior are the best I have ever seen. I shopped for two years and drove every competitor out there but fell in love with this one which I have now driven 4500 miles. The push button dash is much more than a gimmick. It gives the dash a neat appearance and allows for more room and utilization of the console which is needed in a small SUV. Interior is of the highest quality materials and workmanship and I love the exterior styling. Lincoln made every option available on this little Lincoln without making me buy a larger SUV which I did not want which is what many manufacturers do.The navigation and Lincoln sync are easy to use. Easy to navigate parking spaces with the back up camera and cross traffic alert. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a small luxury SUV

Leased the vehicle and am happy I did. I test drove new Lexus NX, Acura, BMW, Ford Escape and Infinity. This was the best by far with the appearance and technology it had. Love the pano sun roof. The only thing I don't like is the female voice that is used for the hands free features, she sounds like an old lady, lol. Tried to change it to a male voice but that option isn't available as far as I can find.

I just leased an MKC Reserve and my wife and I love the vehicle. It's comfortable and the driving experience while traversing NYC streets couldn't be better. When we're in the mood for a luxurious glide-like ride, we pop it into "comfort mode" and when we're looking for that tight sporty feel, "S" mode does the job nicely and certainly boosts acceleration appreciably. Cabin design is exquisite and very eye appealing with soft materials and a high-class feel. There's nothing chintzy or "plastic-y" about this beauty. The THX sound system should have been coupled with a multi-band equalizer, but with bass, mid-range and treble adjustments it can be tweaked adequately, although you may find yourself needing different settings for USB, AM/FM (HD) and Sirius. The MKC doesn't support Apple products, so iPods and iPhones will work, but without the full functionality that a thumb drive filled with your mp4's or an Android phone (text to speech) will give you in the vehicle. The voice module is superb and you can do most things like dial a number, set a destination, climate setting or radio station without taking your eyes off the road. No voice tune-up needed, it recognizes all speaking voices almost perfectly. While in reverse, the cross-traffic sensing system is remarkable and gives you confidence when pulling out of a spot in a busy mall or parking lot, especially at this time of year. In short, we absolutely love our MKC and don't think we could have done better with any other vehicle in its class. Go test drive one...I'm sure you'll be happy you did.

Absolute dream car

I am a new Lincoln Sales/Leasing Agent. I am a car enthusiast, particularly SUVs. driving the MKC makes me feel young again. I can't wait to buy one of my own.

I had this car for ten months. A good car with good performance. The fuel consumption is exactly what it is advertised. The only problem is that the room ion the rear seats are so tight that I don't think that grown ups can fit comfortably. Also the "trunk" area is not what you expect from the outside appearance of the car. I wish that the car was designed a bit longer.
