, Senior Automotive Editor -

The Lincoln MKC entered the market just as the compact luxury crossover became the one of the industry's hottest segments. Though it shares a platform with the popular Ford Escape, the MKC is a critical element in Lincoln's plan to reestablish its upscale bona fides, and the mainstream relationship is successfully obscured by high-end design and materials. Among the little Lincoln's nifty details: A stylish tailgate formed from a single piece of metal.

The MKC comes with standard front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive. Don't look for a six-cylinder engine under the hood -- Lincoln is also on trend with a pair of turbocharged four-cylinder motors, and MKC buyers choose between standard 2-liter and optional 2.3-liter EcoBoost variants.

Major changes included:

All-new for 2015, the MKC follows Lincoln's usual pattern of sharing a platform with a mainstream Ford model -- in this case, the excellent Ford Escape. Most critics agree, though, that this Lincoln successfully differentiates itself from the Ford, and does a fine job of justifying a premium price.

Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional. Two turbocharged four-cylinder engines are offered: the base 2-liter makes a healthy 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, while the optional 2.3-liter churns out 275 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
