5 reasons to buy the 2015 Lincoln MKC

1. Distinctive design

The 2015 Lincoln MKC boasts a unique design that sets it apart from other small crossovers. The MKC features a distinctive liftgate, integrated taillights, and a winged grille that is unmistakably Lincoln. The overall effect is visually pleasing, making it a stylish option if you're looking for something that turns heads — be it in the carpool lane or on the way to meet the in-laws.

2. Two engine options

The MKC comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine that delivers 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque — front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive as an option. If you're after more power, look out for the optional turbocharged 2.3L engine, which offers an impressive 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque with standard all-wheel drive. If getting the most miles to a tank of gas is important to you, there's not much in it. The 2.0L engine with FWD gets an EPA-estimated 23 mpg combined while AWD models get 22 mpg.1 For the 2.3L turbo, you'll get an EPA-estimated 21 mpg combined.

3. Luxurious interior

The cabin of the 2015 Lincoln MKC is designed to impress with tasteful wood accents and a sleek, high-tech dashboard. Lincoln also included an innovative design choice with the transmission presented as a stack of buttons next to the touchscreen, freeing up space in the center console for additional storage. This is handy for long journeys when you need everything nearby from snacks and drinks to change for the toll.

4. Comfortable ride

With a quiet and refined cabin, the 2015 Lincoln MKC is a great choice if you regularly do lengthy drives where you want to be alone with your thoughts — or your favorite tunes. Look out for the optional adaptive suspension if you want to smooth out bumps in the road, especially on the highway. This feature, combined with the standard active noise-cancellation system, ensures a calm driving experience.

5. Generous standard equipment

The base 2015 MKC has loads of great standard features you'd normally find as options on other vehicles: from driver-seat memory settings to a nine-speaker audio system with voice controls. This means that it's easy to find a used Lincoln MKC with the features you need. If you want more, look out for the Select package, which adds a few extra luxury touches such as leather seats and power-folding mirrors. If you love to experience the great outdoors, keep your eyes peeled for the Reserve package with it panoramic sunroof.
