The Lincoln MKC: An Invitation to Drive

March 21st, 2017 by

Invitation

Within eight feet of your parked MKC, approach detection will brighten the exterior LED lighting, turn on handle-pocket lighting tuned to your vehicle’s colour, and project the Lincoln welcome mat in front of the driver and passenger doors. With the Lincoln Way app you can even schedule your vehicle’s remote start times and the vehicle’s temperature will internal temperature will adjust based on the conditions outside. The MKC’s invitation to drive sets a distinct tone.

Approach

Under the hood of the MKC, a standard 2.0L turbocharged engine commands 240 horsepower for a playful and sporty performance.  To compensate for all that power, the MKC makes use of Intelligent All-Wheel Drive and Lincoln Drive Control with continuously controlled damping. You can further tune the handling with selectable drive modes. To match the situation, choose between Comfort (smooth and natural), Normal, and Sport (stiff and athletic). And, Auto Stop/Start technology shuts off the engine seamlessly when not in use to maximize fuel savings. These features come standard in every MKC so that a thrilling ride doesn’t mean losing the smooth handling you deserve in a luxury sport crossover.

Arrival

But aggressive performance doesn’t undermine Lincoln’s signature comfort. The MKC’s split-wing grille foreshadows its aerodynamic grace. Active noise control, felted wheel wells, and pedestal-style door-mounted mirrors minimize noise from the wind and the road. You’ll only hear the available THX II Audio System and its comprehensive acoustic range.

On the inside, each part of the MKC’s design has been matched with the ideal material. Heated front bucket seats use Lincoln-exclusive Bridge of Weir™ Deepsoft leather. The steering wheel, meanwhile, is wrapped in hand-stitched Wollsdorf™ leather from the Alpine region of Central Europe. Premium materials are by no means the easiest choice for Lincoln designers, but luxury isn’t about simplicity.

You can elevate the driving experience further by choosing the MKC Reserve Package. For a start, you’ll find heated rear seats, heated and cooled front seats, panoramic vista roof, and Blind Spot Information System. But the Reserve trim level also includes the 285-horsepower 2.3L GTDI turbocharged engine, so you don’t need to worry about becoming too relaxed.

Return

Every time you get behind the wheel, it’s like you never left. The MKC’s memory features ensure that your driving preferences are never lost. The driver’s seat, heated wing mirrors, and steering column all return to the perfect position at the press of a button. After all, your Lincoln should remember you as well as you’ll remember it.

In truth, luxury is about anticipating the demands of drivers, and providing elegant solutions. That’s the Lincoln ethos, and the best way to experience the result is to drive an MKC for yourself. Visit Capital Lincoln today or explore the MKC online.
