2020 Lincoln Continental vs. Its Competition

2020 Lincoln Continental
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Lincoln would like to have you think that the Continental plays with the big boys in the luxury sedan market – Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series, Audi A8 – but in reality, it’s closer to the near-luxury alternatives.

The Acura RLX is a great value option and features impressive hybrid powertrain tech, but it’s dated.

Cadillac’s CT6 is an excellent effort from another resurgent American luxury brand, and offers impressive semi-autonomous tech.

The Genesis G90 offers seriously impressive luxury for a discount over the Germans, and the Lexus LS is the best luxury sedan Japan has to offer.

Volvo’s S90 is more medium- than full-size but impresses with simple Scandinavian style.
