It will also challenge the BMW 7 series and the Mercedes- Benz S-Class for luxury sedan market supremacy.
2019 Lincoln Continental – More Sporty and Aggressive
From the first looks, it is obvious that the exterior design of the 2019 Lincoln Continental is based on the concept model. This means that the new sedan will sport an elegant and subtle design. Also, it will look a bit more sporty and aggressive, as well. It seems like the American engineers have decided to inject a bit of sportiness into the traditional elegant and luxurious look of the Continental. The 2019 Lincoln Continental also appears longer than the previous versions, which means more interior room. In the front, we will not see any drastic changes. Instead, we will see a slightly revamped grille, larger air vents, and subtly redesigned headlamps. In the back, the Continental will feature more changes. These will include a reworked trunk lid, larger and fully redesigned LED tail lights, a small spoiler and dual exhaust outlets.
