1. Luxurious interior

Looking to ride in luxury? No matter if you're the driver or the passenger, the plush and supportive seats—including available multi-contour options with massage functionalities—ensure a first-class experience inside this sedan. Advanced noise isolation and a finely tuned suspension system also contribute to a quiet and smooth ride, minimizing external disturbances and absorbing road imperfections. Other standard luxury features include heated front seats, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, with optional upgrades including heated rear seats, Venetian leather upholstery, and 30-way power-adjustable multi-contour front seats.

2. Your choice of performance

If you're on the hunt for a comfortable four-door with power, the Lincoln Continental may be a good choice. Compared to other sedans in its class, the 2020 Lincoln Continental is known for its performance. Look out for the three engine options that deliver impressive capabilities on the road: the standard 3.7L V6 engine produces 305 horsepower, with upgraded choices including a twin-turbocharged 2.7L V6 with 335 horsepower, and a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 with 400 horsepower. From a comfortable and refined cruising experience to thrilling acceleration, take your pick with the 2020 Continental.

3. All-wheel drive option

Whether you're driving through rain or snow, or simply seeking enhanced stability and control, the all-wheel-drive option of the 2020 Lincoln Continental is a great pick for long-distance drivers and anyone with lengthy daily commutes. The system distributes power between the wheels, optimizing grip and control on slippery surfaces. It also delivers improved handling and responsiveness, allowing for secure navigation through corners and better acceleration.

4. Lincoln Black Label trim

The Lincoln Black Label trim takes luxury to the next level for owners of the 2020 Lincoln Continental. When you opt for the Lincoln Black Label upgraded trim, you can expect features like a 19-speaker Revel audio system, 30-way-adjustable front seats with massage function, and Venetian leather. This trim may also include a 400-horsepower 3.0L V6 that comes with all-wheel drive.

5. Light touch handles

Innovative door handles may not be first on the list of features that you're looking for. But when it comes to the 2020 Lincoln Continental, they're worth calling out. Instead of protruding outward, these handles employ a mechanism referred to by Lincoln as "light touch". By simply pressing a small button on the inner side of the handle, the door electronically releases. Then, when exiting, the power-operated soft-close doors automatically provide assistance.
