Autoblog

The 2010 Lincoln MKS is among the safest vehicles on the road today.

NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) awards it five stars for all crash tests, save for a four-star rollover rating. The insurance-industry-funded IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) names it a 2010 Top Safety Pick, in a year when it made qualifications for the award stricter.

The MKS has standard dual front, side, and curtain airbags, along with anti-lock brakes, plus traction and stability control. A rearview camera and front parking sensors also are standard, while adaptive cruise control and active park assist are options.

Active park assist uses sensors to determine steering angle and "parks" the car for drivers, who operate only the gas and brake while the MKS with EcoBoost (and its electric power steering) turns the wheel for perfect parking.

According to Autoblog, even the windshield wipers are smart: "I set the intermittent wipers on their lowest setting to try out the Rain-Sense system. Sure enough, as the volume of rain picked up, so too did the interval shorten and they eventually went into normal continuous mode. As the rain stopped, so did the wipers. No more dry wipers dragging across the windshield."

Conclusion

The 2010 Lincoln MKS provides a strong, safe environment for passengers.

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.
