2015 Lincoln MKS Interior

There is good and pleasing ambience inside the 2015 Lincoln MKS’s, thanks to a wealth of materials and often simple design and restrained, that it takes pains not many sites eyes with lines, shapes, buttons and switches. The dashboard in the front passenger space is an organized group of soft, padded material intersected with a single piece of wood-and-metal trim, present a calm, minimalist tone for the entire cabin.

All Minimalism does not contribute to improved driver experience, however. The primary reason for the center of the pile dashboard’s so pleasingly organized due to the MyLincoln Touch screen interface and touch-sensitive, “field effect” slider controls that displace regular handles and switches for the entertainment and climate control systems. The new-age controls to mitigate the button count, but as in other Ford and Lincoln vehicles that use variations of this setup, screen-based control can be slow to respond, graphics can be difficult to see while on the move and all the frustrating and finally enjoy reading. The field-effect touch controls certainly look star-ship grade, but they’re hard to use with precision and do little to improve the overall performance.
