rear bench isn't as sofa-comfortable as it looks
Seats are La-Z-Boy comfy without any side-pinching lateral support
The 2010 Lincoln Town Car's primary role these days is as a taxi and limo vehicle, and its roomy interior and ample seating fit the task. Curiously for such a ride-centric vehicle, the seats, though large, aren't particularly supportive or comfortable. There's plenty of space in the trunk to haul your luggage to or from the airport.
The Lincoln Town Car's stand-out attribute, according to Edmunds, is its "generous interior" with enough room for six adults. Cars.com agrees, calling interior space "abundant," though they note that "support could be better." Edmunds, on the other hand, calls the ride quality "nautical" and lauds the "La-Z-Boy comfy" seats and lack of lateral support. ConsumerGuide, meanwhile, points out that the front seat's "middle rider must straddle transmission hump." The rear seat offers "abundant head room and outboard leg room."
The trunk volume of 21 cubic feet is "massive" according to Edmunds, and Car and Driver takes a humorous angle, saying the Town Car's trunk can "swallow enough golf clubs to supply the tour or enough bodies to ensure an acquittal." With a low deck height, the trunk is easy to load, but moving heavy objects in its depths can be hard on one's back.
Isolation and quality materials are other good traits of the 2010 Lincoln Town Car. Cars.com says the seats are trimmed in "premium leather," and ConsumerGuide finds the material quality good enough to "approach those of some costlier import-brand rivals." Road noise is very low thanks to the body-on-frame construction, and engine noise is "muted" even when wide open on the V-8's throttle, says ConsumerGuide, and tire noise is only noticeable on "very coarse pavement."
The 2010 Lincoln Town Car's notion of comfort and quality may be obsolete, but the interior space can't be denied.
