Introduction

The Lincoln MKC is an SUV heavy on design and technology, without resorting to the quirky looks of the MKZ sedan. It’s considered a compact luxury crossover, and is built on the platform of the Ford Escape.

The MKC performs with verve, and pleases us with its sophisticated cabin and overall refinement, although the back seat doesn’t offer much.

The Lincoln MKC competes on generally equal terms with the Audi Q5, Acura RDX, Cadillac SRX, BMW X3, Lexus NX, and Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, while costing considerably less. The Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento are not considered luxury but still well equipped and worth considering.

The base engine is Ford’s impressive 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder, making 240 horsepower and a strong 270 pound-feet of torque, with front-wheel drive standard and four-wheel drive available.

There is a 2.3-liter version available, straight out of the sporty Mustang, that makes 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet. Because it comes with all-wheel drive it’s not that much quicker than the front-wheel-drive 2.0-liter; it accelerates from zero to sixty in about seven seconds. Both engines use a 6-speed automatic transmission. There’s no V6 available, but you’ll never miss it.

Changes for 2016 are all in the infotainment system. It’s been a problematic area for Ford. The new Sync 3 uses a capacitive touch screen replacing the MyLincoln Touch resistive touch screen; the voice command is improved and there are other upgrades. However, it’s not yet clear whether Sync 3 fully replaces MyLincoln Touch. There’s also a new parking system that parallel parks or unparks without the driver having to touch the steering wheel.

Fuel mileage for the MKC with front-wheel drive is an EPA-estimated 20/29 mpg City/Highway, while the all-wheel-drive 2.3-liter is rated 18/26 mpg City/Highway. Those numbers aren’t much if any better than the competition, which also offers high-mileage hybrids and diesels.

Lineup

The 2016 Lincoln MKC comes with front-wheel drive and 2.0-liter engine or all-wheel drive and 2.3-liter engine. Four trim levels are available.

The MKC Premier ($35,755) comes well equipped with more standard features than most luxury SUVs, including heated front seats, active noise control, remote start, and HID headlamps. The next model up, the Select, gets better leather, ambient lighting and more. The Reserve model adds navigation, panoramic sunroof, hands-free liftgate and cooled front seats. A Technology Package brings the active safety features.

The top of the line is an MKC AWD Black Label ($48,950).

Walkaround

The Lincoln MKC design theme is graceful athleticism, which might be a cliche but it’s a true enough description of the stance and profile of the MKC. It sure doesn’t look like the Ford Escape upon which it is based.

The split-wing grille makes a strong statement at the front, with HID headlamps and LED lights adding accent. But the view might be more interesting from the rear, with a clean clamshell two-piece tailgate and LED taillamps that span the width. It’s a smooth and unique design in a class of SUVs that tend to look alike.

Interior

There is another design theme for the cabin, called elegant artistry. This one is a bit less attainable, but give Lincoln an E for effort, because compared to past Lincolns it’s uplifting. There are strong contrasts, for example porous wood with bright metal, and glossy wood with matte metal. Available leather called Bridge of Weir. Imagine French Scandinavian.

This refinement includes silence inside, thanks in part to active noise cancellation. The cabin is tight.

The instrument panel is straightforward, suggesting a lesser attempt to be elegant. Its corners are pushed outward and the center stack is sloped and angled toward the driver, creating an airy feeling in front.

Far less so in the rear. The graceful athleticism of the tapered roofline robs from the back seat, which robs from itself by being hard and upright. The optional panoramic roof lowers the ceiling but opens your eyes to the sky.

There is no shift lever, as the transmission is pushbutton, but there are also paddle shifters so it’s all good.

The latest-generation Sync 3 needs time to see whether it is popular with buyers. We can tell you it’s in the center of the elevated kiosk-like console, that there are big knobs for radio tuning (hooray), and there’s an array of climate switches.

Driving Impressions

The MKC offers a choice of two engines. The 2.0-liter engine has enough power for almost everyone; if you don’t need all-wheel drive, that’s the engine you’ll get.

The 2.3-liter engine is a bit quicker and comes with all-wheel drive. The twin-scroll turbocharger provides immediate throttle response, and the engine has plenty of power for passing, but there’s a bigger difference in fuel mileage (two to three miles per gallon) than there is in acceleration, between the 2.3- and 2.0-liter engines.

Both engines use the same 6-speed automatic transmission. The torque converter is stronger in the 2.3 because it has more torque. Downshifts can lag, even with the paddles. And even with a balance shaft to smooth the engine, the 2.3-liter can sound coarse under hard acceleration.

Lincoln Drive Control sets modes for the response of the steering, throttle, transmission and suspension. But not easily. The bewildering choices (two for steering, two for powertrain, three for suspension) are made on the button shifter on the instrument panel. You have to use a menu system via a toggle on the steering wheel, and go three levels down to program performance. You can program two modes (Drive and Sport) and they stay in memory.

Both MKC models steer extremely well, but we thought the 2.3-liter version with all-wheel drive felt more coordinated in the curves.

We give the steering, handling, brakes and ride quality high marks. The MKC is long on poise and response. The brakes deliver a solid pedal feel and the tires a reassuring bite. We found the steering flawless when tuned sporty. The most aggressive Sport settings put this Lincoln in hot-rod territory; it was firm and grippy through some demanding esses. The electronic continuous damping suspension, whose behavior can be set by the mode buttons, adjusts to the road in milliseconds. The MKC rides as well as the BMW X3 or Audi Q5.

Summary

The Lincoln MKC holds its own and offers surprises in the highly competitive compact luxury crossover field. Powertrain and handling are exceptional, while dealbreakers might only be the back seat and available infotainment interface system. We found the 2.3-liter version with all-wheel drive the most enjoyable to drive.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
