Competitors Struggle to Keep Up with the Lincoln MKC

Crossovers give you more room than a sedan, and a sportier feel and better efficiency than an SUV. Among luxury crossovers, the Lincoln MKC reigns king. It's competitively priced, but comes standard with tons of extravagant and convenient features. We believe in giving our customers the easiest possible car-shopping experience, so we've gone ahead and compared the Lincoln MKC with one of its main competitors.

Why are New Haven shoppers drawn to the Lincoln MKC over the Audi Q5?


At the heart of every Lincoln MKC is an engine that was crafted to give you a thrilling ride. The 2.3-liter turbocharged engine has more horsepower, 285, and torque, 305 pound-feet, than you'll find in the Audi Q5, 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet. You'll accelerate more quickly in the Lincoln MKC, which New Britain daredevils are sure to enjoy.

The impressive engineering of the Lincoln MKC's engine gives it greater fuel efficiency than the Audi Q5, even though the Q5 requires premium fuel.


Every trim level of the Lincoln MKC exudes luxury and style, but you don't have to break open the piggy bank to own one. It has a lower starting MSRP than the Audi Q5 at every trim level.


The interior of the Lincoln MKC is amazingly comfortable. Even in the base model, Plainville drivers will find a 12-way adjustable driver seat with power lumbar support, and both front seats have heating to take the bite out of New England winter weather. The seats of the Audi Q5 are not as adjustable, and only the top trim level has heated seats.

The top trim level of the Lincoln MKC features supple Bridge of Weir™ leather seats that have heating and cooling for the summer. It can be outfitted with heated seats for the rear, so that everyone gets to enjoy the luxury of the Lincoln MKC.

Another design feature of the Lincoln MKC that isn't found in the Audi Q5, is the active noise control technology throughout the cabin. The windows, wheel wells, and exterior mirrors all use technology that cuts down on the outside noise that makes its way into the car. East Hartford drivers will always have a relaxing drive, and conversations with passengers will be easier to hear.


The Lincoln MKC comes with a ton of standard features that you'll have to spend more on in the Audi Q5.

  • The Remote Start feature lets Milford drivers start the car warming up so you're always comfortable while driving.
  • The Power Liftgate opens by swiping your foot under the bumper, which is great for grocery-shoppers.
  • Approach Detection will light your path as you get closer to the Lincoln MKC with the key in your pocket, and lights the door handles so you can find them more easily.
  • The exterior mirrors fold in after you park and lock the doors, so there's less of a chance of someone hitting them when you're not around.

These do not come standard on the Audi Q5.

There are several similarities among the two cars, but the Lincoln comes out with a slight edge in most cases. Both cars offer ambient lighting that lets you change the mood in the cabin, but the Lincoln MKC has more color options than the Audi Q5. Both offer a panoramic sunroof. The Lincoln MKC's is larger, which provides passengers with better views.
