Mixing classic styling with modern flair, Lincoln's new Continental sets a solid benchmark for how a modern luxury sedan should look.
After a 15-year hiatus, Lincoln brings the Continental model back as a 2017 model.
The Continental, introduced in 1939, helped establish Lincoln's luxury reputation, enduring through many model changes.
The new Continental uses a front-wheel-drive platform, although it can be optioned with all-wheel-drive.
A high roofline maintains headroom over the rear seats.
Lincoln works the door handles into the chrome belt-line trim.
The available all-wheel-drive system includes active torque vectoring, which overdrives the outside rear wheel in a turn, helping the car's handling.
The oblong shape of the Lincoln badge is echoed in the openings of the grille.
LED headlights also echo the shape of the Lincoln badge.
