Lincoln-Mercury says its Continental is designed to provide "exemplary comfort and ride quality in a highly maneuverable sedan with distinctive styling." Lincoln has accomplished that mission and more, with improved ride quality, enhanced maneuverability, subtle styling changes and a sophisticated new instrument panel. All told, there are more than 400 enhancements for 1998. Offered in just one model this year, the Continental offers the latest in technology with electronically adjustable suspension and steering systems and futuristic instruments. These whiz-bang electronics are not intrusive, however, as owners can choose to use them to tailor the car to their driving style and environment or they can simply ignore them, relax and enjoy the cruise. Regardless of your level of involvement, the Continental is a satisfying luxury car.
