2019 Lincoln Continental vs the competition

2019 Lexus LS -- The Lexus LS gives you a bit more room and unique luxury features, like 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 strong resale values.

2019 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, but its turbocharged 4-cylinder engine might put off some luxury buyers. There's also a powerful hybrid version.

2019 Cadillac CT6 --The CT6 offers a less flamboyant design and is geared a bit more toward aggressive driving. The CT6 can match the Continental in power, and enthusiasts will prefer the Cadillac's rear-wheel drive to the Continental's front-drive design. There's also a plug-in hybrid model.

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.
