I always dislike Audi for keeping their design the same for a while, they really need to change it up. At least Lincoln did something different.

YUp, it's a great in between model that can suit a lot of people and MAYBE pull some people away from Audi

If we are just comparing style, the MKC seems like someone actually designed it. The Audi just looks like the neutral base upon which design would be done.

I think that the size of the MKC is good too. Not too big, not too small. The combination of style and slightly larger size makes the MKC have a much more noticeable presence.

That would be quite an interesting turn in Lincoln's strategy. I wonder what the MKC was aiming for as a benchmark though. I would guess that it would be more focused on BMW since it seems to be doing super well in the luxury CUV segment. Maybe the X3?

That 180 in minus size has serious relevance in the marketplace. I believe that divider separates the CUV from the midsize models. Didn't buy mine for the back seats. I want room I just drop them. Interestingly, it rides better than every other SUV I have ever driven including my Range Rover Sport!!! That is saying something.
