Each year, Consumer Guide Automotive editors analyze, compare and evaluate numerous vehicles by driving and extensively testing all major models in 20 vehicle categories. Those models that best fit the needs of the consumer are recognized with a Best Buy accolade.

“MKC is the vehicle Lincoln watchers have been waiting for. It’s great to see this historic brand with one of the best products in a hot and expanding segment,” said Tom Appel, publisher, Consumer Guide Automotive.

The 2015 Lincoln MKC seamlessly blends performance, craftsmanship and technology to meet the needs of luxury buyers who want a more personal experience.

“We are delighted that the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC has been recognized as the Best Buy among Premium Compact Crossover SUVs by Consumer Guide Automotive,” said Kumar Galhotra, president of Lincoln. “We continue to be encouraged that our latest all-new vehicle has been recognized with tremendous honors so soon after its debut.”

Earlier this year, the 2015 Lincoln MKC was named the Crossover Utility Vehicle of Texas by the Texas Auto Writers Association at its annual Truck Rodeo.

“This has been a busy year for Lincoln with the momentum from the 2015 MKZ, warm reception for MKC, an engaging new advertising campaign and the arrival of the dramatically refreshed 2015 Lincoln Navigator,” Galhotra said. “We’ll have even more news to share in the very near future.”

The Lincoln MKC is the second all-new Lincoln. With a powerful, efficient all-EcoBoost(R) engine lineup complemented by an array of premium amenities and technologies prioritizing comfort and convenience, Lincoln MKC targets a growing audience of luxury consumers with unique needs.

The EPA-estimated rating is 20 city/29 highway/23 combined mpg (front-wheel drive). Actual mileage will vary.

Available Lincoln Drive Control customizes the driving experience to deliver an exhilarating ride. Lincoln Drive Control orchestrates continuously controlled damping, electric power-assisted steering and active noise control. Drivers can select from Normal, Sport or Comfort modes.

The Lincoln MKC offers always-on, built-in connectivity through an available embedded modem. Via a smartphone app that communicates with the vehicle, the available MyLincoln MobileTM app gives Lincoln MKC owners the ability to start, lock, unlock and locate their vehicle, as well as schedule a remote start.
