That, in reality, means, that this brand new variant is going to stay a five- seater, but now, its main cabin is going to be much wider, in order to offer for all of the MKX’s passengers plenty of room for their heads, legs and arms. The front seats, now, have been, somehow, upgraded-they now possess thigh bolsters, which allow for all passengers easier entry and exit. The cargo area is going to be extended, as well.
When it comes to the exterior refreshments, certainly the most notable are LED running lamps, which brighten on approach to the vehicle with the key fob, while, at the same time, there are puddle lamps brightening the surrounding pavement and, in addition to all that, the door handles have been additionally illuminated.
