The second all-new vehicle in the Lincoln brand's plan to introduce four new models by 2016 is a small premium crossover with a touch of luxury to it. Besides the potent engines and posh exterior, the Lincoln MKC's cabin is a nice place to spend time in.
Ford's luxury division intended to display its best in quality and craftsmanship with the all-new MKC and there's obvious proof of that once you step inside the sports utility vehicle. Even the entry-level Premiere 100A model that carries a $33,100 sticker price gets lots of goodies as standard.

Just to name a few, highlights include heated power front seats, an 8-inch Sync with MyLincoln Touch infotainment system, Lincoln Premium Audio System, rearview camera and a remote start system.

Besides the extensive standard equipment list, customers of the 2015 Lincoln MKC can opt for a unique seating surface. Currently available only on the MKC, the Deepsoft seating surfaces provided by Bridge of Weir Fine Scottish Leather promise to offer a luxurious experience, helping create a soft, buttery feel. “Feel is a very important part of the luxury car experience and Deepsoft leather gives our customers a luxury feel that they can only get in the MKC,” said Jenny Kubinec, Lincoln color and material designer.

Bridge of Weir defines Deepsoft leather as semi-aniline, treated with only a partial protectant to maintain its soft touch. While many leathers are embossed to give seating surfaces a uniform appearance, Deepsoft leather is chromium-free, non-embossed and naturally milled.

Each piece’s natural grain remains visible. Moreover, Deepsoft leather is dried slowly for 16 hours to help create its unique feel. That's saying something if you take into consideration that other automotive leather surfaces are dried for only 2 hours.
