According to the latest reports, the 2018 Lincoln MKC will receive its first update. This is one of the youngest models in the lineup of this luxury brand. It came three years ago, as an all-new model. It came into one pretty new segment of compact premium crossovers. Nowadays, we have many models in this segment. There are models like Lexus NX, BMW X1, Mercedes GLA and many others. Because of that, the company wants to make some updates, to make this model more competitive. Although the exact details are still unknown, we should see several new details for this occasion. Some reports suggest changes both in visual aspect and in terms of new standard features. On the other side, the mechanical part of the car should remain the same. We expect 2018 MKC to arrive somewhere late in the year.
