When you take a side-by-side look at the 2019 Lincoln MKC and the 2019 Volvo XC60, it's undeniable that they have a similar body shape and overall look. However, a closer examination reveals that there are distinct differences and pros and cons to each vehicle. In this comparison, Vic Bailey Lincoln takes a closer look at powertrain and trim level offerings, comfort, value, cargo, and storage space for both the 2019 Lincoln MKC and the 2019 Volvo XC60. Let's see how the 2019 Lincoln MKC leaves its competition in the dust!  

2019 Lincoln MKC Vs 2019 Volvo XC60: Trim Levels

The 2019 Lincoln MKC and the 2019 Volvo XC60 both offer a variety of trim levels. The 2019 Lincoln MKC offers 4 trims: Standard, Select, Reserve, and Black Labe. The Reserve and Black Label trims offer an upgraded Twin-Scroll Turbocharged 2.3L I-4 Engine. Volvo XC60 offers three trim levels: Momentum, R-Design, and Inscription with three powertrain offerings (T5- turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, T6- turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, and T8- eAWD Plug-in Hybrid ) available at any trim level. While the ability to select your preferred powertrain option at all trim levels is a definite advantage for the XC60, it's important to note that the price point for the base trim level on the Lincoln MKC is far more affordable than the Volvo. It's also worth noting the large number of standard features that MKC's base trim offers in comparison to the XC60.  

Comparing Base Model Standard Features

The Volvo XC60's base Momentum model trim and Lincoln MKC's standard trim both include: 18-inch wheels, LED headlamps, power liftgate, leather upholstery, and power adjustable front seats. The XC60 also includes IntelliSafe technologies like City Safety Collision Avoidance Technology, Lane Keeping Aid and Road Sign Information. As is typical with Lincoln, the MKC packs in a number of additional standard features such as:    

  • Heated front seats 
  • Heated mirrors 
  • Rear parking sensors 
  • Rearview camera 
  • Intelligent Access with Push-Button Start 
  • Remote start system 
  • Dual-zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (DEATC) 
  • Particulate air filtration system 
  • 60/40-split reclining and folding back seat    
Due to the sheer number of standard features on the base model, the MKC is the leader in this category.

Considering Comfort


When it comes to a comfortable ride, both the 2019 Volvo XC60 and the Lincoln MKC make an effort with leather upholstery and other amenities. The interior of the XC60 is more modern with the MKC delivering classic comfort. However, the Volvo XC60 does little to provide a quiet cabin and the MKC does well with blocking out road noise. The MKC is also a better choice for taller drivers and passengers with more front-seat leg room.
