The MKC shares a platform with the Ford Escape, but with its elegant sheetmetal and distinctive grille, few will mistake it for its mainstream sibling. The MKC is lower, longer, and wider, with standard features such as xenon headlights and heated seats. The base 240-hp 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder is shared with the Escape; a 285-hp 2.3-liter turbo four is optional. Both use a six-speed automatic. All-wheel-drive models get an adaptive suspension; it’s an option on front-wheel-drive models.
