I really enjoy that even though it is a 2. 0 liter engine it still has plenty pick up and power when needed. The gas mileage is a bit lower than I would like considering I drive a lot however it is not too terrible for an SUV. I love the leather interior with heated seats especially in the cold Wisconsin winters. The automatic start is a dream as well, I have always wanted it on a vehicle and now I have it! The stock sound system is amazing for jamming out to the country or hip hop tunes on your drive in to work or school or the long road trips.

All options, handling, performance, is great. Gas mileage is almost 30 mpg!! The ride is so smooth and the engine is so quiet. All my kids are grown so most of the time the back seats are down so I have plentiful cargo room. I will be purchasing another mkc when I decide it is time for a new one.
