Rounding out the week, we come to the most important feature of the MKC: Safety. With seven airbags in all models, as well as seat belt pretensioners, energy-management retractors, a crash severity sensor, and more, the MKC offers some of the best protection on the road imaginable. Those airbags include two dual-stage front airbags, two side-curtain airbags, a driver’s knee airbag, and seat-mounted side airbags in the front seats.
But safety isn’t just a badge or a certification. Safety is an ultra-high-strength steel frame. Safety is a calculated crumple zone. Safety is four-wheel anti-lock brakes, traction control, Roll Stability Control, and e-brake force distribution. Safety is crashing your pride and joy more than five thousand times to make sure nothing has been overlooked. Rest assured, the Lincoln MKC excels in safety.
