Beautiful Car, Drives smoothly, very quiet

I have owned a Lincoln SUV for the past 5 years. I love the performance, dependability and style. The luxury is well thought out, and standard features are valuable to the drivability of the car. Previously owning the MKX Reserve, I recently purchased an MKC Reserve. Smaller and lighter than the MKX, it gets better gas mileage and has tremendous pickup and acceleration. Surprising for a 4 cylinder car!! The Reserve model has A beautiful cabin, with thoughtful electronics and controls.

Most comfortable SUV ive driven

by Renee from west palm beach | August 12, 2020

I love my MKC. I had a aviator before and loved it as well. I can't rave enough about how comfortable this suv is. Im tall it has plenty of head room and leg room front or back seats. The leather is beautiful and it has everything you could want in a vehicle!
