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 drove and priced BMW,MB, Lexus and more. I was about to buy the X3 when I took the MKC for a spin. OMG - love this SUV beyond comfort and great ride.

Gives BMW, Audi, Lexus a run for their money

My husband and I bought our MKC to replace his rapidly aging luxury car, which gracefully lived a long, garage-kept life for 15+ years. Since the MKC's were released, my husband had his eye on them... he loved the exterior styling. We considered the BMW X3, Audi Q3 and Lexus NX, and were completely and pleasantly surprised when we test drove the MKC. Official reviews touted that the MKC was just a "re-badged Ford Escape" and I can tell you, this is nothing like an Escape. Far, far from it. We purchased the 2017 MKC Reserve AWD with the Tow, Technology and Climate Packages. The technology in this is amazing - we're in our mid-30's and were just shocked as to all it can do! The Sync3 system is intuitive and responsive, and we love that it works with our Android and iPhones. All of the safety features like BLIS with cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist, radar cruise control, ect, is a huge help, but some of those annoying features can be turned off (which we liked). One thing we didn't think we'd appreciate as much as we do is the comfort. I love the BMW and Audi's performance, but the MKC is so, so quiet and comfortable without really sacrificing responsiveness. The noise and roughness is one thing I really didn't like in the BMW. The heated/cooled seats, and heated steering wheel are a huge plus. We live in the Northeast, and can say this has been excellent and solid when driving in the snow or poor weather conditions. The panoramic sunroof is great too; probably the nicest feature, I'd say. My father even like the sleek design and the interior quality... and he's owned nothing but BMW and Lexus for ages. The sounds system could be a little better; seems a little "blah" to me. But I would say that so far, this is my only complaint. This is by far one of this nicest, best vehicles either of us has owned so far. We bought an excellent vehicle for the price and as long as Lincoln keeps this up, we'll be long-term customers.

2017 MkC

Premiere 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)

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.

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.
