Which Continental is the Best?

We think the best Continental is the Reserve trim with the 400-hp 3.0-liter V6. You'll get all the luxury features one expects from this class, plus AWD and access to most of the Continental's optional features.  Find a Lincoln Continental for sale

2020 Lincoln Continental vs the competition

2020 Lexus LS -- The Lexus LS gives you a bit more room and unique luxury features, such as the Executive Class Seating option, and it offers more power. The LS's styling might be a bit too over the top for some, but it does have a long and proven record of reliability and a strong resale value.

2020 Volvo S90 -- The S90 offers a handsome exterior that's a bit more refined than the Continental's, and its interior is an exercise in elegant simplicity. The S90 has some of the most sophisticated autonomous driving assists available and its underpowered T5 drivetrain has been dropped for 2020. There's also a powerful hybrid version.

2020 Cadillac CT6 --The CT6 offers a less flamboyant design and is geared a bit more toward aggressive driving. It can match the Continental in power, and enthusiasts will prefer the Cadillac's rear-wheel drive to the Continental's front-drive design. As of 2019, the CT6 is the only car available with the outstanding Super Cruise system, which is the industry's first hands-free semi-autonomous driving tech.

Used Mercedes-Benz S-Class -- A 2013-2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class can be had for about the same cost as an entry-level Continental. You'll have more engine choices, more interior room and a lot more clout with the parking valet.
