Parallel parking on a busy street can be a little nerve-wracking, but active park assist certainly makes things easier. To explain how it works, our latest video includes a demonstration of the feature using the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC.
In essence, the MKC’s active parking-assist system works like a teammate: You handle the shifting and braking while the car handles the steering. The system also offers a few other benefits. For one thing, it determines if a given parking spot is large enough for your car to fit. That means you don’t have to attempt to park into a given spot only to discover that your car is too big. There’s also Park Out Assist that helps steer you out of a tight parallel parking space.
Although active park assist takes a little getting used to, we found that it’s an excellent feature that really makes it easier and more convenient to park your car.
