2019 Lincoln Continental vs. Its Competition

2019 Lincoln Continental
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The 2019 Continental splits the difference between mid- and full-size luxury sedans, and as such has a wide range of competitors vying for sales in different segments.

The Cadillac CT6 is its closest foil, being an American, twin-turbocharged near-full-size luxury sedan… that almost nobody is buying either.

The Acura RLX represents great value and a strong hybrid option, but not nearly the panache that the Lincoln carries.

Genesis hoped to jump-start its fledgling brand with the budget luxury features the G90 provides, but somehow it sells even more slowly than the Lincoln.

The recently-redesigned Lexus LS has pushed closer to BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class territory but can still be had at a decent discount over the Germans.

Finally, the Volvo S90 is more of a traditional mid-size competitor, but competes with the Lincoln in style, price, and tech options.

6.7
The 2019 Acura RLX wraps a forward-thinking powertrain in a comfortable but cookie-cutter package.
The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is smarter and more powerful, but will that put it on more driver's radars?
7.4
Drivers may not find much to lust after in the 2019 Lexus LS, but it pampers like few other luxury sedans.
7.2
The 2019 Volvo S90 is a superlative and comfortable mid-size luxury sedan with a brain.
6.8
The 2019 Genesis G90 full-size luxury sedan is smart money in a silly-expensive class of cars.
