Lincoln has some good news for fans and enthusiasts of its Lincoln MKC – the premium brand’s small sports utility is getting a refresh for the 2019 model year. Among the updates are some new styling elements, increased connectivity, and more driver-focused technologies.
The premium carmaker introduced the MKC in 2014 (as a 2015 model), and since then the small SUV has been successful in bringing in new customers from other brands. Lincoln noted that nearly half of its new customers are conquest sales.
With the current looks of the MKC making waves in the small SUV segment and attracting new customers, Lincoln perhaps has decided to keep most of the present formula and implement a few styling updates while adding new innovations to further gain more sales.
One of the most glaring styling tweaks on the 2019 Lincoln MKC can be seen up front. Gone is the split-wing grille, which has been replaced by a new signature single-piece grille.
This new grille is flanked by detailed separately housed headlamps that employ light emitting diode (LED) units. The new 2019 MKC is also provided with a new design on the rear end that features chrome highlights. Customers may also have their 2019 be fitted with a panoramic roof to allow more natural light to enter the cabin during the day.
The new 2019 Lincoln MKC will arrive at Lincoln dealerships next summer.
