Great Addition to the Lincoln Line
As another reviewer's title says, "This is not your grandpa's Lincoln." I thought that when I first test drove one, and I would have used the title here if it hadn't already been used. I have been a Ford product owner since my first new car, and this is my eighth new car. I traded in my 2002 Eddie Bauer Explorer with almost 250,000 miles on it for the MKC. I wanted something a bit smaller with better gas mileage while offering quality. I will say that I always said I'd never spend more than $35,000 on a car, but the MKC Reserve certainly stickered for substantially more. However, I believe that for the price and from a comparison standpoint, the MSRP is not out of line. The fit and finish on the vehicle is outstanding, and I've had a number of compliments on the car from passersby. People really like to comment on my kicking under the rear to open the rear hatch. People also love the welcome lighting in the car. I've had the car for one year and 4 months, and I can honestly say it has exceeded my expectations. I've read reviews from individuals and ratings companies (e.g., magazine editors) that the mileage estimates are way off. I have to say that is not my experience. Other ratings I've seen in some reviewers were actually lower than I expected. At speeds from 65 to 73 on the highway, I've actually hit 34+ mpg. That's better than the highway mpg on the window sticker. So, this is definitely good mileage. And with over 19,000 miles on the car now, the average mileage since I've owned it has averaged 24.6 miles. I love BLIS, adaptive cruise control, the heated and cooled seats (cooled are going to be very important in the southern heat), the My Lincoln app, extremely comfortable seats, active park assist and other options. I joke that I actually had to read the manual to learn how to use the car. Oh, and I can't forget the push button start and remote functions, including starting from my phone. And speaking of the phone, my iPhone works great with SYNC 3. Bluetooth works well, voice recognition is great, and the nav system is handy - I had no desire to get the nav system, but it came with the package, and I actually use it to see what traffic is like when going to and from work. And the THX optional sound system is outstanding - it's a new way to listen to my music! After 1 year and 4 months and 19,000 miles, I still find no negative issues with the car. Burgundy velvet with the ebony interior is a great combination, too.
I Love My MKC.
I have the 2017 MKC Reserve. I have never been more pleased with a vehicle. As far as safety, it is incomparable. The blind spot alerts and lane drifting alarm (steering wheel vibration) is great. The interior with the wood trim is very well done, you certainly get your money's worth. The ride is smooth and quiet and it handles fantastic. I can open the tailgate by waiving my foot underneath it lol, so that works great when your hands are full. I love this car.
2017 MkC
My wife's car was due for replacement. Having owned 4 Audis and 5 Porsches over the last 40+ years, our first stops were to look at the Audi Q5 and Porsche Macan. Fine vehicles by any standard and no doubt, worth their price. But my closest P/A dealerships are 30+ miles away. And then there is the cost of routine maintenance. Even if it is only once or twice a year the bills do add up. Stopped by our local Lincoln dealer. Family-owned operation, not a mega-dealer.Drove a 2016 MkX and a 2017 MkC. Bought the C. AWD, 2.3 liter turbo 4, 19" wheels and a whole bunch of other stuff. More technology than I will ever need or want. Quiet, solid. No wind noise at 75mph. The 2.3 liter has more than enough low end grunt and can run all day at 80mph.Lincoln is certainly trying to up their game. Call for service and the dealer comes to your house or place of business, drops off a loaner and takes your vehicle in for service. Your vehicle gets, serviced, washed and returned to you. Not a bad deal. Is the MkC comparable to a Q5 or Macan? Not really. But I have an extremely competent smaller SUV that cost between $10k and $20k less than its German counterparts, not counting the service cost differential. My one complaint is that those 19" diameter 45 series tires are not the friendliest on the oxen trails that pass for roads in my state.

2017 Lincoln MKC Reserve

We can see why some might dismiss the Lincoln MKC as nothing but a gussied-up Ford Escape, but we aren't among them. Though some of its mechanical bits are shared with its down-market Ford cousin, the Lincoln MKC has a personality all its own, with unique (and, in our opinion, handsome) styling and a quiet demeanor well suited to a five-seat luxury crossover SUV.

The interior is a mixed bag: Materials quality isn't up to the standards of the MKC's European rivals, something you'll note when you push the buttons that engage the transmission — they don't feel properly damped. But we like the push-button-shifter concept, which frees up space for a nice big storage bin on the center stack. The Sync 3 touchscreen infotainment system is a definite plus; it uses big, easy-to-see virtual buttons and supports swipe and pinch motions, just like for a smartphone. Apple users benefit from Siri Eyes Free and Apple CarPlay technologies, and the stereo supports Android Auto as well.

Lincoln offers the MKC with a choice of two turbocharged four-cylinder engines. The 2.0-liter produced 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, while the 2.3-liter version (optional on all but the base-model MKC) delivers 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0 can be paired with front- or all-wheel drive, while the 2.3 is AWD only. In Edmunds testing, neither proved to be particularly quick: The 2.0-liter engine made the zero-to-60-mph run in 8.0 seconds while the 2.3 did it in 7.2. A responsive automatic transmission helps the 2.0-liter MKC feel quicker in real-world driving, and frankly we felt little seat-of-the-pants difference between the two engines. The 2.0 front-drive setup is EPA rated at 23 mpg combined (21 city/28 highway), with all-wheel-drive models rated 1-2 mpg less. We saw 25.8 mpg on our 116-mile fuel economy loop. The EPA rates the 2.3 at 21 mpg combined (18 city/25 highway), but our test-drive yielded an impressive 25.5 mpg.

The MKC's smooth, comfortable ride is its best feature (though backseat passengers, who enjoy less room in the MKC than in other premium-branded five-seaters, might disagree; cargo room is also tight). The MKC comes standard with an active noise-cancellation system, and the driving experience is smooth and relaxed, if not particularly engaging, even with the optional (and highly recommended) CCD adaptive suspension dampers. But the MKC's jumpy accelerator response and grabby brakes make it hard to drive smoothly around town. Although we imagine owners will eventually adjust, it's uncouth behavior for a luxury vehicle.

Lincoln sells the MKC in four versions. The basic Premiere is anything but basic, offering an array of desirable comfort and convenience features, with even more coming courtesy of the Select model. The Reserve adds most of the items that are available as options on the Select, and the Black Label is the best Lincoln has to offer, including the adaptive dampers of which we are so fond. Edmunds can help find the perfect 2017 Lincoln MKC for you.
