The 2017 Lincoln MKC is a compact premium crossover, which can recommend itself to buyers who are looking for a quite, well-equipped and comfortable five-passenger ride. It is offered in four trims: Premiere, Select, Reserve and Black Label. The new model limits the updates to the exterior and a few touches here and there inside the cabin, considering that MKC was introduced to the car market a few years back.
