2016 Lincoln MKX
The Lincoln MKX has been one of the most popular cars by Lincoln and one of the oldest running models with it completing almost 9 years in running. However, with the last upgrade to this model being in 2011, it was high time for the car maker to give the MKX a stylish new look with upgraded technological features and it has done just that with the 2016 model of Lincoln MKX.
2016 Lincoln MKX Interior and exterior design
The exterior design of the Lincoln MKX has been given a major overhaul to make the car look more muscular as well as sporty. The entire silhouette has been modified to give the car a more elegant look; the sloping roof top which is found in many crossover cars makes a major impression towards this end. Wraparound tail lights, LED head lights, muscular rear bumper and bigger exhaust outlets are some other changes in the exterior design. The car’s body also has a line of chrome and glass finish for an ultra classy look.
The basic interior design has been kept the same as the previous model but subtle changes have been made to make it look more high standard. The seats are ultra comfortable and covered in premium leather while the dashboard insets are finished with wood trip and chrome. The seats are also 22 way power adjustable in some models. The USP of the interior features, however, is the Revel sound system which comes with the option of 13 or 19 speakers providing for the ultimate audio experience.
The safety features are also designed at par with the industry standards and include a 360 degree camera, collision warning system, cross traffic alert and many other supportive safety features.
