Intelligent Access with Push-Button Shift

There’s no gear shift knob in your center console. That gives you more room, providing an airy cabin and open, flowing design. Designers put the transmission controls in a vertical series of ergonomic buttons on the center instrument panel. MKC also provides the fun and and control of a manual transmission. Press the “S” button to activate the Sport mode. This lets you shift gears using the paddle shifters located on the steering wheel without having to engage a clutch.

Lane-Keeping System

It happens at times to the best of drivers – unintentionally drifting out of the driving lane. That’s when you’ll appreciate the available Lane-Keeping System. When activated, the system can detect when the car is drifting out of its lane and warn you through a subtle vibration in the steering wheel. Additional settings allow the system to apply steering torque that alerts you to steer back to the correct path.

*Lane‐Keeping System does not control steering. The driver should always be in control and responsible for safe operation of the vehicle.

BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert

The available BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert is designed to help make driving more convenient. BLIS uses radar in the rear quarter panels to identify a vehicle entering your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the sideview mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to detect vehicles approaching from either side when you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or your driveway. If it detects a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, it sends an audible warning, a visual display in the sideview mirror and a signal in the message center.

*Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s judgment.

Adaptive Cruise Control with Collision Warning

Available driver-activated adaptive cruise control (ACC) operates just like normal cruise control, but with one exception: Its sensors can detect traffic slowing ahead and automatically slow your car to maintain the distance you’ve set. When traffic has cleared, your car resumes the preset speed. Forward Collision warning with brake support, included with ACC, can alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield. If you don’t react immediately, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake.
