DEARBORN, Mich. – Good ratings in all five crashworthiness tests as well as a good rating for LED headlights help the all-new 2018 Lincoln Continental qualify for a coveted TOP SAFETY PICK+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The Continental’s front crash prevention system earns a superior rating. When equipped with the system, the car avoided collisions in IIHS track tests at 12 mph and 25 mph. The system also has a forward collision warning component that meets National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) criteria.
