The Continental is extremely comfortable with the suspension soaking up every road irregularity.
Seats are spectacularly comfortable and adjustable (24 way) to get just the right position.
Extremely quiet cabin.
The HVAC with triple zone automatic temerature control is awsome, so powerful and extremely quiet. The heated and cooled front seats help a lot and the heated rear seats will help rear passengers. The driver has the heated steering wheel which is even more awsome than I expected.
It is a large size car (S class Mercedes) with lots of space for passengers and cargo, that handles very well.
The engine and transmission are very smooth and quiet and the 2.7 twin turbo has a lot of go right off the line. The engine warms up very quickly partly due to the electronic shutter grill in front of rad that closes when engine is cold to stop airflow through rad and opens fully when engine is at operating temperature. Oil filter on top of engine aids maintenance.
The AWD system is spectacular, starts in 4 wheel drive mode and by 40 kph transits to FWD if in summer conditions and you cannot feel any change.
Fuel economy is exceptional as I just got an average of 7.9 liters per 100 kilometers on a trip.
The electronic door latches are fantastic to use, so much nicer than the mechanical type and safer when exiting the vehicle since you have one hand on the door pull and thumb on button so door does not need 2 hands to exit safely when a wind is blowing.
The technology is right up to date with easy to use features, adaptive cruise is awesome, crash avoidance by braking works spectacularly with so many idiots on the road, lane keeping warning and assist is there to help but is unobtrusive, car self parks front to back and parallel so that is spectacular, rear view camera and front view camera help the driver and so does the 360 view from front, rear and under mirrors cameras and they give a nice audible and visual coloured lighted warning, the list of great features just goes on and on.
The dash display can be customised to suit the driver and provides an incredible amount of info at one time, you can even see the 4 tire pressures presented graphically with digital readout for all 4. Makes the cost of TPMS seem worthwhile since it is accurate too.
The entertainment system (Sync 3) is excellent with the easy to use Nav a highlight, Revel audio works perfectly and keeps the sound level at all speeds the same as when parked with engine off. There are so many usb and other connections everywhere. Pairing a phone is easy and there is radio muting automatically. The voice commands take a little getting used to but are helpful when driving, but I need more practice with it..
The 2017 Lincoln Continental is great and the perfect car for me.
