The 2017 Lincoln Continental tackles modern luxury from a traditional point of view.
The Cadillac CT6 is the opposite: it's subdued to a fault, though it has more pedigree competing against the Germans.
The Acura RLX takes the same mechanical approach--it's spun off the mechanicals of mid-size Acuras--but isn't finished as interestingly as any of its rivals.
The Lexus LS still delivers sublime performance and hybrid power for those still interested, but dynamically it's from another era.
In comfort and ease of use, the Lincoln stacks up most closely against the Genesis G90 and Volvo S90.
They're both fighting the same uber-luxury rivals with counterprogramming--the Volvo with high Scandinavian style, the G90 with South Korean chauffeured-car realness.
