Once parked, your MKC awaits your return. As you approach with your key fob in your hand, purse or pocket the vehicle senses your approach (up to eight feet away) and exterior lighting brightens. Door-handle pockets glow with soft lighting tuned to complement the vehicle's color. A Lincoln welcome mat illuminates the entrance in front of both the driver and passenger doors. Once you are in the car, available ambient cabin lighting glows warmly.
Select a hue to match your mood. Ambient lighting provides seven color choices. Light emits from the front-console cupholders, door-release handles, front and rear footwells and front-door storage pockets.
Intelligent Access with push-button start is standard in Lincoln MKC. With the key fob in your pocket, purse or briefcase, just open the driver's door. Once inside, press the brake pedal and then the start button, shift into gear and go. It's so easy and convenient, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it.
MKC blends the best traits of a sport crossover with the refinement of a luxury sedan. It begins with the grille framing dramatic HID headlamps with signature LED accents. Crisp lines stretch taut across the sculpted body. The low roof and high beltline evoke an athletic nature. Available 19- and 20-inch wheels make a bold statement, while felted inner wheel wells help soften road noise.
The available panoramic Vista Roof provides both the first- and second-row passengers with an expansive view. The Vista Roof comes with a power sunshade to help keep your vehicle cool when the temperature heats up.
The 2017 MKC features available auto-fold power mirrors. These mirrors will fold in when the vehicle is locked and unfold once you're inside and the door is closed. There is also a switch on the driver's door that folds the mirrors toward the vehicle to help avoid hitting an object while you're parking.
An available suite of sensors continuously monitors and adjusts the suspension. The sensors also detect body movement along with steering and braking dynamics in milliseconds, faster than you can blink. Select the operating mode — Comfort, Normal or Sport — that suits the driving experience you prefer, from exceptional ride quality to a spirited, sporty feel.
Available Intelligent AWD uses sensors to constantly monitor traction. It balances torque between the front and rear wheels to enhance handling and maximize traction, typically before wheelslip can even occur.
Active noise control heightens overall cabin sound quality by reducing unwanted noise while enhancing desired sound to help provide a pleasant driving experience. Microphones monitor the sound profile of the cabin, which is then replicated and inverted by a signal processor to create an opposing acoustic wave through the speakers. When the opposing wave meets the original sound wave, they cancel each other out.
Available driver-activated adaptive cruise control (ACC)61 operates just like normal cruise control, with one exception: Its sensors can detect traffic slowing ahead and automatically slow your car to maintain the preset distance you've set. When traffic has cleared, your car resumes the set speed. Forward collision warning with brake support, included with ACC, can alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield. If you don't react immediately, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake.
It happens to the best of drivers unintentionally drifting out of the driving lane. That's when you'll appreciate the available Lane-Keeping System. When activated, it can detect when the car is drifting out of its lane and warn you through a subtle vibration in the steering wheel. Additional settings allow the system to apply steering torque that helps you to steer back to the correct path.
