2017 Lincoln Continental Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick Award
Top Safety Pick is the highest IIHS award. Factors which influenced the Continental’s win include its available Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection system and good ratings for its optional adaptive LED headlamps. It also achieved scores of “Good” on all five crashworthiness tests; small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side roof strength and head restraints.
The Pre-Collision Assist system uses radar and camera technology in order to issue a warning to the driver in case of an impending collision. This innovative system has the ability to automatically apply the brakes as needed if the driver doesn’t react in a timely manner.
The LED headlamps use high-beam assist in order to provide excellent visibility. This system automatically switches between low and high beams depending if other vehicles are nearby.
