5 reasons to buy the 2018 Lincoln MKC

1. The Lincoln Experiences welcome lighting

At the end of a tough day at work, the MKC will lift your spirits with its Lincoln Experiences welcome features. When the MKC sensors recognize that your key fob is nearby, exterior lights fade upwards, welcome lights and the Lincoln logo illuminate the ground outside the front doors, and LED lights glow around door handle pockets. Once inside, the available ambient interior lighting radiates throughout, while essential features gently blink for your attention to assist the beginning of your journey home. The 2018 Lincoln MKC is undoubtedly a class act, adding genuine warmth to the driver and car relationship. 

2. Impressive turbocharged power

There's more to the MKC than its graceful exterior curves—it also has plenty of turbo power under the hood. Both the standard engine, a 245-hp 2L inline-four, and the optional 285-hp 2.3L are turbocharged, perfect for big-trip hauling with a full complement of passengers and luggage. Head to the ski states for winter sports and you'll appreciate the MKC's standard torque vectoring control that keeps you firmly planted on mountain road twists and turns, while the available adaptive suspension absorbs any bumps along the way.

3. Deluxe finishing

For the 2018 MKC, Lincoln has delivered a plush interior experience. Active noise control dampens intrusive outdoor sounds, while a nine-speaker premium audio system delivers the rock ballads or R'n'B jams that soothe your soul. Plush leather upholstery with French seams and tonal headliners are standard, while the available wood inlays of Rosewood or Ash stand out beautifully against the warm interior shades of Ebony, Express, Cappuccino, and Hazelnut. 

4. Clever driver tech

If you commute across town every day, the MKC has a great feature that urban drivers like you will love. Instead of straining your calves to hold down the brake pedal for those never-changing stop lights or a slow-moving rush hour, activate the Auto Hold function and let your 2018 MKC take the strain. Bringing the vehicle to a complete stop, Auto Hold keeps it in place, only moving again once you press the accelerator to go. You don't need to hold down the brake pedal at all. And guess what? It works on hills too. 

5. Smart SYNC 3 connectivity

From teens that talk with their friends all day to your weekly call with grandpa, more and more of us use the latest hands-free technology to make calls while we commute to and from work. The 2018 MKC is equipped with the SYNC® 3 system, an easy-to-navigate infotainment suite controlled with your voice or from its eight-inch color touchscreen. Compatible with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, SYNC 3 voice recognition allows you to make and receive calls with your voice as the controller.
