My 2016 Lincoln mkc is a comfortable, luxury vehicle that is worth every penny. It has great, yet sensible features, such as leather seats, a back row power plug and a panoramic roof. The front and rear heated seats really come in handy, during the winter months. I also love the blind spot detection feature, which flashes a warning light letting me know another vehicle is on the side. The rear view backup camera is especially useful when backing out of my driveway. The hatch/trunk space is a good size for my husband and I, when shopping or transporting items. If necessary, we have the ability to fold the seats down, providing more space. I have no complaints about my Lincoln mkc!

The much has a very smooth ride. It handles easily. The car performs well in rain and snow. I find the car to be very comfortable. It is easy to use Bluetooth I love the heated and cooled seats. In the summer when 5he leather is hot I find the cooling seats to b3 a great option. The car is reliable and does not require frequent oil changes. Lincoln provides complimentary oil changes. What I would change are the tires. I get frequent flats which I never had with my other Lincoln’s. Overall I love the car and plan to lease another.

Mkc is a great car. A little small to travel. Trunk space is adequate but if traveling with 4 people can be tough. It has fun features. Tight in back with 3 passengers. If 3 children were sitting it would work better. Three adults in back is tight. Do not like cigarette lighter where you put the phone Charger. It is tight to put fingers to connect. Same with USB port next to cigarette lighter.
