5 reasons to buy the 2019 Lincoln MKC

1. Four comfort-loaded trim options

The 2019 Lincoln MKC comes in four trim options: Base, Select, Reserve, and Black Label. On the Base model, if you're spending ample time behind the wheel for daily school drop-offs or business travel, you'll appreciate the standard features including heated front seats with memory control as well as cruise control and power mirrors. If you choose the second tier Select trim, this adds leather seats and a helpful navigation system. Slip into a Reserve and you gain a panoramic sunroof as well as ventilated seats. If you go for the Black Label trim, you'll enjoy a heated steering wheel and rear seat heaters to keep passengers (including older kids and pets!) extra cozy.

2. Sharp SUV styling

This compact crossover SUV is a head-turner with its curvy, upscale profile and beautifully detailed grille that matches Lincoln's larger rides. If you opt for the Reserve trim, an optional upgrade to larger 19-inch or 20-inch wheels can make a bold statement. Simply put, the 2019 Lincoln MKC (the last year of this model) is a stylish ride for those who need to make an impression when pulling up to a client meeting or chauffeuring real estate customers to property viewings.

3. Plenty of technology

Inside the 2019 Lincoln MKC, you'll find the Base trim is well-appointed with an eight-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay® integration, Bluetooth® connectivity, two USB ports, a nine-speaker sound system, a satellite-ready radio system (available with a subscription), and more.

Whether you have teen passengers who need charging capabilities for their devices, or you simply enjoy streaming your favorite podcasts from your phone to your car's speakers, you're set in this car.

4. Two powerful engine choices

The 2019 Lincoln MKC is fitted with a six-speed automatic transmission and two engine options. All trims come standard with a zippy turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder 245-hp engine and front-wheel drive capability. The Reserve and Black Label trims offer an optional upgrade to a more powerful turbocharged 2.3L four-cylinder 285-hp engine and a switch to AWD. If you need more get-up-and-go for frequent highway driving, ramp acceleration, and lane merging, look out for this powertrain.

5. Room for family and adventures

With seating for five, this compact SUV is ready to grow with you. It works well for stylish singles, power couples, or small families with a few children — four-legged or human! The rear seatbacks recline a bit for extra comfort for adults, too. If you have children in car seats, there are two sets of LATCH car-seat connectors on the rear outboard seats and an upper tether in the rear middle seat. Behind the backseats, you'll find 25.2 cu-ft of cargo room to store your weekly groceries or toss the kids' backpacks. If you fold the rear seats flat, you enjoy a total of 53.1 cu-ft of flat space to haul a pair of weekend golf clubs, a dog's kennel, or camping gear, so load up and hit the road!
