Back in 2008 in a time of financial crises, the Lincoln Company had a lot of problems, but fortunately, they solve all the problems they had, and now they definitely work very well. They have a lot of great and modern vehicles, and one of them is certainly MKC model. This model debuted back in 2013 at Detroit Auto show and hit the dealerships a year later. In 2014 they had 13,000 units sold, in 2015 plus just about 25,000 units sold. That means that the MKC is the company’s third best-selling model right now. Lincoln says that they expect more sales with the new model for 2017. They have a lot of reason to think like that, and in the next review you can find out what reasons will make the 2017 Lincoln MKC best MKC so far.
2017 Lincoln MKC – Elegant Body Look:
The exterior design of the recently developed 2017 Lincoln MKC will be awesome, and this model will definitely have a bold and muscular stance with elegant refinement. The design language of this model will be very similar to the second-generation of a mid-size sedan, named Lincoln MKZ, but of course with some modern modifications. The door handles of this model will be more conventional than in the current model. Also, there is going to be some changes from the front side including a lower front bumper. LED powered fog lights and useful air intakes are incorporated in the bumper. Furthermore, a split-wing front grille will remain the same as before while the headlights will be sharper this time. Of course, all lights on the vehicle will use LEDs. At the rear side, we can notice more changes. For example the taillights; they are completely redesigned and between them, we can notice Lincoln lettering.
The interior design of the waiting 2017 Lincoln MKC is very luxurious. A lot of quality materials and high-tech features are provided. Of course, it is not everything good inside. For example, the center stack is very bad compared to the main rivals of this model. It is definitely lackluster. On the other hand, the comfort is just perfect. All seats are covered with the high-quality leather. Another thing wrapped in the leather is steering wheel. Some of the other interior features include wood trim, 10-way power adjustable seats at the front, dual-zone climate control, ambient lighting system, a lot of connectivity and safety system, and many others.
