The 2019 Lincoln MKC has a new grille that matches the one seen on brand's latest vehicles such as the Continental and Navigator. It's an improvement and gives the MKC a classier look. But the rest of the 2019 MKC is unchanged, which means it has some issues that prevent it from being a top contender in the premium crossover SUV segment.

Pros
More standard features than many of its competitors
Comfortable and quiet ride on the highway

Cons
Some interior materials look cheap considering the price point
Slower-than-average acceleration from either available engine
Some common driver safety aids only available on the top trim levels
Smaller back seat and cargo area compared to many competitors
