Lincoln Continental Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Award

It comes as no surprise to our team at Randall Reed’s Planet Lincoln in Spring, Texas (serving The Woodlands, Cypress, Aldine, Conroe, Houston) that the all-new Lincoln Continental’s earned a top safety pick award.

The luxury sedan, available Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection system, garnered the highest award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) due to its available crash prevention system, along with the good rating achieved on crash tests and its optional adaptive LED headlamps.

The Lincoln Continental (with Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection) avoided collisions in track tests at 12 mph and 25 mph. The system’s forward collision warning component also meets National Highway Traffic Safety Administration criteria.

The car’s available adaptive LED headlamps earned a good rating, providing ample lighting on a straightaway and on most curves. The headlamps use high-beam assist, a feature that automatically switches between high beams and low beams, depending on the presence of other vehicles.

Vehicles qualify for a Top Safety Pick+ if they have good ratings in five crashworthiness tests – small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints – plus an available front crash prevention system that earns a superior or advanced rating, and good or acceptable headlights. The Lincoln Continental delivered on all aspects.
