If you're concerned about safety, the 2013 Lincoln MKS is one of the best choices you could make. In addition to top-tier occupant protection ratings, the MKS offers a set of available safety features you won't easily find elsewhere at this price.
Both the federal government and the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) have extended their 2012 results to 2013 for the MKS--and that means Top Safety Pick status for the MKS, as well as a top five-star rating overall from the feds.The MKS also 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; and now for 2013, Lincoln has added lane-keeping assist and lane-departure warning, as well as stronger brakes.
Active Park Assist is another safety-related option; 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.
The 2013 Lincoln MKS is one of the safest sedans on the road; and some astounding active-safety features provide added reassurance.
