During my research ahead of getting behind the wheel of the 2019 Lincoln MKC, I noticed a common theme. The luxury SUV has been continuously slated for having poor acceleration compared to its rivals. So naturally, the first thing I do with my test drive is find out just how sluggish it is.
And, well, this is patently wrong.
Compared to several competitors I’ve had the pleasure of driving recently, the Lincoln MKC feels much quicker. Sure, there’s a brief, nanosecond delay between hammering the pedal and hurtling forwards, but the power is there.
So with that rumour squashed, I dip deeper into what else this 2019 MKC has to offer.
