A look at the Lincoln MKC's interior

The 2015 Lincoln MKC is the next step in Lincoln revival strategy. The Ford Escape-based crossover sets itself apart from its sibling with changes to the body , interior, drivetrain, and suspension. I thought I would take a more in-depth look at what is going on in the interior of the MKC. All in all, I am pretty impressed.



The MKC has a simple interior that resists the temptation to add in every gizmo and gadget imaginable. Dials and knobs replace the touch controlled interior of the MKZ, and this is a welcome change that makes everything easier to use. The interior also feels nice and open. The MKC has an extra 22mm of space between the wheels when compared to the Escape, and if you opt for the large vista roof, that airy feeling becomes even greater.



Lincoln makes use of high quality materials in the interior to capture a feeling of luxury. Real wood trims and leather seats with French stitching prove that Lincoln isn't cutting any corners when it comes to craftsmanship for its customers. The MKC also introduces a new steering wheel for Lincoln that is wrapped in real leather and feels nice in the hands.



The Lincoln MKC has a upward sweeping dash that houses the push button start and the class exclusive 8-inch touch screen to control MyLincoln Touch. Drivers can make use of SYNC, or voice commands to control almost anything in the vehicle including audio, climate, Bluetooth and more. Other interior features of the Lincoln MKC include the THX II Certified Audio System, which is an industry first, and the head-up display that projects vehicle information onto the inside of your windshield.

In my opinion, the MKC's interior stacks up to its German rivals. We will have to wait to see sales figures before we know for sure though.

it would be a good idea if they looked into adding some more styling to the seats, seems like it's very plain and basic. even just a simple pattern, diamond stitching, would help.

Do you guys like the center console? I find it a bit bulky. I think it would be nicer if they made it lower down perhaps. I think the knobs are a good idea though. I could see touch controls being difficult to use all the time while you are driving.

I would also get the interior in a different material combo. I am more of a fan of darker colors in the interior than lighter ones. I find beige interiors to look like they are for old people.

Reminds me of old people leather shoes that are beige. Kinda like these.

I don't usually like light colored interiors but I think the MKC pulled it off very well

the MKC interior is actually two tone, and done lovely at that! Notice how the door panels are beige but the seats and top dash are a deep chocolate brown...

I was expecting the center console to be similar to that of the MKZ, with a more sleek and modern layout. Seems weird they didn't do this.

the centre console has been a bit of a sticking point in the MKZ, this is much better.
