No one in our area carried an MKC that had the hazelnut interior OR the espresso/white sands. Everything was either black or white sands. I'm kind of glad that we never saw it in person because it probably would have encouraged us to step up to the Reserve package.
We like the white sands interior, but it's gonna be a b....... to keep clean even though we're empty-nesters.
The Hazelnut is handsome.
I would have gone for it, except that I think the MKC demands a white headliner to make it feel more open. Even with the pano roof, the white really opens up the interior. My bride talked me into the all White Sands instead of the combo with the Expresso. And her chair is getting that indigo cast to it.
The YouTube video makes the seats look quite a bit lighter than they actually are. I'd say the Hazelnut interior seats are a rich mocha, medium darkness. Not taupe. The black headliner is an expensive extra cost item on many German cars, and standard with the Hazelnut MKC. No color from jeans will ever show on this one.
