2016 Lincoln MKC REVIEW

Lincoln has borrowed liberally from parent company Ford for years, charging a premium for little more than extra leather and an (arguably) more prestigious badge. Imagine our surprise when we first drove the then-new 2015 Lincoln MKC and found that Lincoln's small crossover SUV didn't feel much like a Ford at all. A premium cabin, unique sheet metal, two available turbocharged four-cylinder engines and an optional adjustable suspension made the MKC feel far removed from the Ford Escape with which it shares a basic structure. It's a refreshing change, but whether it is enough to elevate the 2016 Lincoln MKC to top-tier status in the small luxury crossover SUV category is another matter. Although all Lincolns are Ford vehicles underneath, the 2016 MKC comes off as impressively distinct. To its credit, there is a lot to like about Lincoln's least expensive offering. Active noise cancellation, sound-reducing glass and extensive use of sound-deadening material make the MKC a seriously quiet vehicle. Ride comfort is superb with the optional adaptive suspension dampers, as the MKC dispatches poorly maintained urban streets without a hint of distress. An extensive list of standard features -- including the new Sync 3 touchscreen interface -- and a low starting price mean the MKC delivers plenty of value for the money, too. On the downside, though, the MKC comes up a little short on both versatility and driver involvement. The interior can be cramped for taller adult passengers -- especially in back -- and maximum cargo capacity is below average. Regardless of engine choice, the MKC's acceleration is underwhelming, while overly sensitive steering and pedals can make this small Lincoln hard to drive smoothly. The luxury compact crossover segment is full of great choices. The 2016 Acura RDX and 2016 BMW X3 are the vehicles to beat in this segment, as both are superior in terms of acceleration, handling, seat comfort and cargo space. The 2016 Audi Q5, 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport and 2016 Lexus NX200t are also strong competitors. Overall, the "B" rated Lincoln MKC is one of the best Lincolns in recent memory, but one of these rivals could very well end up being more appealing for you overall.
