Lincoln Canada sure wanted me to arrive in style ahead of TIFF!
Luckily I was chosen to test and review the brand new 2019 Lincoln MKC.

Push-button start, push-button transmission and a futuristic, ultra-quiet interior design ensure maximum space and comfort. This model has a 285-horsepower 2.3L twin-scroll turbocharged engine and 305 lb-ft torque. It’s also a triple threat, the power comes from directly-injected fuel (little to no fuel waste), twin turbo engine and twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT). This vehicle can also tow up to 3000 lbs.

Adaptive cruise control and advanced collision control work to keep the driver seconds ahead of what’s happening on the road. If Lincoln MKC is quickly approaching a stopped vehicle or object it will sound a warning and dash lights up with red-alert – alerting the driver to stop immediately. We tested this out in a parking lot with cardboard boxes and it works like a charm. The standard adaptive suspension in the Lincoln MKC uses a suite of sensors to monitor and adjust the suspension. The Lincoln MKC also has the option of a Sport driving mode.

Stops on a dime! Lincoln MKC has an ultra-powerful breaking system.

SYNC 3 ensures hands free calling, 911 Assist, and Sirius XM Radio to keep you connected when it matters. The sound system in the Lincoln MKC is impeccable. One Sync 3 drawback is usually I like to charge my phone while driving on a very short USB to ensure it’s un-useable and un-reachable; yet when I plugged the phone in to charge it would automatically activate car play, making it difficult to use SYNC 3 while the phone was charging. I also found a lot of glitches with the voice activation feature – it wasn’t so great at recognizing my speech for navigation. From experience using hands free voice navigation, SYNC 3 only correctly interpreted my speech 20% of the time. This was with all windows up and moon roof closed!

Lincoln MKC has auto-fold mirrors which fold in once you have parked and locked the vehicle. It also has approach detection systems: when it senses the fob approaching it lights up to greet you!  Please remember to NEVER text and drive, never smart phone and drive – #ItCanWait

Lane-keeping technology is useful, active park assist is helpful and rear cameras make driving and parking easier. The 2019 Lincoln MKC also is equipped with motion-sensors under the rear bumper which can open the door with the swipe of a foot if you have your hands full and the fob is also with you. Here I am demonstrating the available hands-free lift gate in action!

The  PANORAMIC VISTA ROOF®  provides both the first- and second-row passengers with an expansive view in the 2019 Lincoln MKC. The Vista Roof comes with a power sunshade to help keep your vehicle cool when the temperature heats up. I loved driving with the Panoramic Vista Roof wide open on beautiful days.

Overall, my review of the Lincoln MKC is a 7 out of 10!
The Sync 3 navigation voice detection gave me some issues. While the breaks were incredibly strong and sensitive, I did notice I had to be heavy on the gas pedal to feel the torque catch at it’s peak performance. The comfort, design and ease of use were my favorite parts about the 2019 Lincoln MKC. Schedule a test drive and see for yourself! Comment below – what’s your favorite feature?

Thanks to Lincoln Canada for the gorgeous  2019 Lincoln MKC.
