2020 Lincoln Continental Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 6.9

The 2020 Lincoln Continental has a mostly upscale interior, but some critics lament a few unimpressive materials. Seating space and comfort are excellent, and the infotainment features are user-friendly. Cargo space is above average, but the trunk is oddly shaped.

  • "But as the price rises, you become more aware of some drawbacks such as the mediocre quality of some interior materials. Our test car also had some unevenly fitted body panels — that's not something you want to see on a luxury sedan." -- Edmunds
  • "This is one area where modern features meet traditional luxury. Amid the push-button gear selector, Wi-Fi, 8-inch infotainment touch screen and digital driver information display are high-quality materials assembled with precision." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
  • "Once inside it's clear Lincoln spent plenty of time, and money, ensuring the interior lives up to the Continental nameplate's legacy. Every surface feels as plush as it looks, and the list of amenities reads like a first-class weekend getaway." -- Forbes (2017)

Seating

The Lincoln Continental seats five people. Standard features include synthetic leather upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable and heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Options include heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, genuine leather upholstery, Venetian leather upholstery, 24-way power-adjustable and ventilated front seats, 30-way power-adjustable multicontour front seats, ventilated rear seats, four-way rear power lumber adjustments, power-reclining rear seats, inflatable rear seatbelts, a rear center armrest control console, and rear window sunshades.

The Continental's front seats are extremely comfortable, but expansive rear legroom means that the front seats don't have as much legroom as you might expect

For installing child safety seats, there are two full sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats. The rear middle seat has a tether anchor and the ability to borrow lower anchors from both sides. The lower anchors are set deeply in the seats, but it's easy to attach the car-seat straps.

  • "The seat-bottom extender is split 50/50, and you can get 30-way power seats, letting you find that perfect seating position." -- Autotrader
  • "Drivers and passengers will find a lot to like about the Continental's cabin. Compared to other luxury sedans, the car has a much more upright seating position, which we found comfortable. … The front row feels a bit tight due to the extreme legroom offered in the rear." -- Edmunds
  • "There’s also plenty of space for five adults in the … Continental, and the front seats are comfortable whether they have 10-way, 24-way or 30-way adjustment." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2020 Continental include an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage door opener, dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, remote start, and the SYNC 3 infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, satellite radio, a 10-speaker stereo, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.

The SYNC 3 infotainment system is straightforward and user-friendly. There are plenty of physical controls on the dashboard that are clearly labeled and within easy reach of the driver.

Standard driver assistance features include adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic high-beam headlights, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, adaptive headlights, a rearview camera, and the MyKey driver monitoring system.

Optional features include navigation, a 13- or 19-speaker Revel audio system, HD Radio, a household-style power outlet, tri-zone automatic climate control, two rear USB ports, a twin-panel moonroof, automatic parking assist, a head-up display, and a surround-view parking camera system.

  • "The Sync infotainment system with navigation is a welcome standard feature on the Reserve and Black Label trims. It's easy to use and can understand voice controls, although some commands could be made more clear. … And the audio and climate button layout is well within reach." -- Edmunds
  • "The Sync 3 infotainment system is easy to use, featuring an onboard 4G Wi-Fi hotspot and a large touch screen. The Continental's unique push-button shifter takes a little getting used to, but you'll acclimate to it quickly." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • "Nothing is touch-sensitive in the Continental, with the exception of the multimedia screen. Mechanical buttons and switches finally feel like quality items. … They move with a fluidity and click with a precision that again exudes the kind of quality feel I've found more often in a German luxury car." -- Cars.com (2017)

Cargo

The Continental has 16.7 cubic feet of trunk space, which is above average for a luxury large car. While the cargo opening is wide, the trunk itself isn't that deep. A hands-free power trunk lid is optional.

  • "Perhaps another casualty of the Continental's smooth profile and roomy rear seat, the sedan's awkward trunk space hinders its overall storage capability. A low liftover height makes it easier to load heavy objects, but otherwise the space is short and small. The width and depth are good, but overall the Continental struggles to carry much in its trunk." -- Edmunds
  • "The Continental's trunk is long and wide, though not exceptionally deep." -- Motor Trend (2017)
  • "The Continental skimps on some traditional Lincoln strong suits in favor of style. For example, trunk space is a middling 16.7 cubic feet, while more traditional large luxury sedans manage a couple more cubic feet out back. Additionally, if you get the rear seat package, your only access to the trunk from the cabin is via a small pass-through in between the two seats." -- New York Daily News (2017)
