If safety is one of your concerns, there aren't many cars that would be a better choice than the MKS. It offers a long list of active and passive safety features, and it's rated well for occupant protection.
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 as of last year, 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.
Both the federal government and the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) have extended their 2013 results to 2014 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 Lincoln MKS is simply one of the safest vehicles on the road today.
