DEARBORN, Mich., Jan 11, 2019 – The Lincoln Continental, for the second year in a row, has earned the TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This makes Lincoln the first U.S. auto manufacturer to earn the award this year.
The 2019 Lincoln Continental’s front crash prevention system earned a superior rating, and it earned good ratings in all five crashworthiness tests necessary for the award.
In addition, the Continental’s optional LED projector headlights earned a good rating, providing ample lighting on a straightaway and most kinds of curves. The headlights can be obtained with high-beam assist, a feature that automatically switches between high beams and low beams, depending on the presence of other vehicles.
Vehicles quality for a TOP SAFETY PICK+ award if they have good ratings from IIHS in five crashworthiness tests – small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. They also need an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and a good headlight rating.
