Sorry for the late response guys. Just too many Facebook groups and forums to keep track of.
First of all, let me preface my comments by saying that I haven't driven any of the other luxury cars, so I can't make any comparisons.
I can tell you that pictures of the Continental don't do it justice. You have to see it in person to appreciate the beauty and quality of the car. I love the electronic door handles. The doors open effortlessly, and close softly. No need to slam the doors shut. The 30 way Perfect-Position seats are extremely comfortable, but will take a little bit of playing with to find your perfect position the first time. The instruments and controls were fairly intuitive, but as with my MKZ, it will probably take the average person a couple of weeks to get used to everything. The cabin was extremely quiet, even more so than the MKZ, and the ride was exceptionally soft without being floaty or mushy. I didn't have a chance to really put the car through it's paces, but it seemed to handle very well for a large car. The steering was responsive and gave just enough road feel. Lincoln says that it gives you a serene effortless experience, and that truly describes the feel of the car. The car that I drove had the 400 hp twin turbo V6. Not sure how fast it is, but it was extremely quick off the line, especially for such a large car. It's the perfect car for driving in traffic, or on a long road trip. Lastly, the Revel Ultima sound system is a must have option! I'm no audiophile, but it's without a doubt the best audio system I've heard in a car.
If my 2015 MKZ is any indication, the Continental should be a very reliable car. I just hope I can afford it when it's time to get a new car.
