When it comes to safety scores and features, the Lincoln MKS lords over all vehicles—not just passenger sedans.

It’s a nearly perfect report card. NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has given the MKS five stars for all crash tests, even a four-star rating for rollover resistance. Even more impressive and difficult to obtain is the insurance-industry-funded IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) Top Safety Pick designation, which the MKS gets for acing that agency’s crash tests and sporting standard stability control, while also meeting a new roof-crush standard.

Along with those high crash-test figures, the MKS brings out all the standard safety gear you’d expect in a pricier German-built sedan. The big Lincoln has dual front, side, and curtain airbags standard, along with anti-lock brakes and traction and stability control. A rearview camera, automatic wipers and front parking sensors also are standard, while adaptive cruise control is an option.

Techno fans will also want to order the optional Active Park Assist. It uses sensors and cameras to determine the optimal steering angle, and with the help of the driver on the gas and brake, it “parks” the car. It’s available only on the turbo MKS, since it’s the version with the necessary electric power steering.

Conclusion

The 2011 Lincoln MKS provides drivers and passengers with the best safety on the road.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
