A Closer Look At the 2019 Lincoln MKC
Over the course of this past year, I have had the chance to be behind the wheel of several stand-out Lincoln models including both the 2018 MKZ and the and the 2018 Navigator. These cars instantly won me over with impressive attention to detail, great performance, and overall driving experience. As I got behind the wheel of the 2019 Lincoln MKC, I could not help but wonder if next years model of the MKC would bring to the table. After spending several days in the 2019 model, I am pleased to see this crossover fall right in line with the brand’s superior driving experience.
October might be the best time for car reviews. Not only are the 2019 models now hitting the road, but weather conditions are such that the cars wide range of climate controls can be put to the test. While driving around the city, I was greeted by both the harshest and beautiful weather the 10th month of the year can offer. Luckily for me, the MKC has all the necessary climate controls available on the centre console. Every passenger in the car ( even passengers seated in the rear) have access to the climate controls. Unfortunately, Lincoln decided to leave out an analogue control for the heated steering wheel. Regardless, the function is still available via the touchscreen menu.
The touchscreen is as responsive as ever, offering all the settings you would need at your fingertips. Everything from selecting a media source, to set a destination on the cars built-in GPS system is completely user-friendly. The MKC has also made it a breeze to connect your smartphone via Bluetooth, which is something you are going to want to do thanks to the implemented SYNC® 3 technology, compatible with both Apple carplay and Android Auto.
