The advantage that MKC has on its side is the availability of good genetics, because the mechanical base of 2015 Lincoln MKC is based on the tried and tested excellent Ford Escape. This time Lincoln has laid great focus on the word ‘based’ because going by their history the car maker has always remained akin to changes in the oval front shape of Ford and replacing it with the Lincoln Badge. Although the new MKC doesn’t look any close to the Escape and it looks more like an imitation of Audi Q5, but that’s a different story to talk about.
