Here are the specs for these 4 vehicles:I saw the MKC in person for the first time today. Local dealer had a dark blue w/black interior/reserve group/FWD 2.0 (Not for Sale).
I sat in & eyeballed it but did not drive it as I am interested in the 2.3 AWD. I am not a big fan of blue cars but the shape looks fantastic & seats feel comfortable.
I will drive the 2.3 AWD ASAP but the small back seat may be a deal killer.
I am 6'3" & drive with the seat all the way back. Space in back does not seem much bigger than my Mustang. But the Mustang is a weekend toy. The CUV will be my everyday driver & the back is clearly inadequate for friends or business associates.I am comparing to BMW X3, Audi Q5 & Volvo XC60. The Lincoln is 3"-5" shorter overall & it looks like the entire difference is in the back seat legroom.
MKC Legroom F/R: 42.8"/36.8"
BMW X3 39.9"/36.8"
Audi Q5 41.0"/37.4"
Volvo XC60 41.2"/36.4"
Adding the F+R, the MKC offers the most total legroom...per the manufacturers' published specs.
