If you still think of Lincoln as an out-of-date, out-of-touch automaker that builds old-fashioned luxury cars, the 2016 Lincoln MKC will completely change your mind. A stylish, well-designed compact luxury SUV, the MKC isn’t too big or too small. Instead, it’s sized just right to compete with rivals from Lexus, Acura, Audi, BMW and Mercedes, and it offers just as many high-tech gadgets as its competitors, if not more. The MKC is also sporty and yet surprisingly efficient, touting up to 20 miles per gallon in the city and 29 mpg on the highway thanks to a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Our editors noted that they "expected it to be a gussied-up Escape" but "found it to be anything but." One editor even noted that several rivals "pale in comparison" to the 2016 Lincoln MKC, which is not something we ever expected to be writing about a Lincoln, making it a clear choice for our list of 10 Must Test Drive vehicles of 2016.
