All the important changes to the 2019 model year MKC occur up front with the company's new grille, which made its debut on the latest Continental. Now the split grille is gone, there's also a new bonnet and front bumper design.

Engine options are the same. There's a standard 245hp (183kW) 2-litre turbo 4-cylinder, and an optional 2.3-litre turbo 4-cylinder with 285hp (212kW) 305 lb-ft (414Nm). Front-wheel drive is standard, AWD is optional.

Nothing much changes along the side. As before the MKC is based on the Ford Escape (Kuga in Europe).

Apparently there's now a bit more chrome on the back. It looks like there's a strip of it above the licence plate area.

There's new interior trim, and more safety tech than before.

The facelifted MKC goes on sale in the summer of 2018, but unlike the MKX facelift it doesn’t get a new name. We’re not sure why.
