1999 Continental New Car Test Drive
The Lincoln Continental has accomplished its mission for 1999: That mission, according to Lincoln-Mercury, is to provide 'exemplary comfort and ride quality in a highly maneuverable sedan with distinctive styling.' The Continental does all that and does it with its own interpretation of what a luxury car should be.
That interpretation includes the latest in electronic technology: Suspension damping and steering effort are controlled electronically by the driver. A high-tech instrument panel provides improved legibility, while computer controls allows owners to tailor their Continentals to their driving style and environment. These whiz-bang electronics are not intrusive, however, as owners can choose to use them or ignore them, relax and enjoy the cruise. Either way, driving the Continental is a satisfying experience.
