This past week I had the opportunity to drive the 2018 Lincoln Continental and it defined for me what it means to experience luxury while driving both in the city and out in the country.
PAMPERING | IN THE CITY
As a city girl, I spend a lot of time in my car driving to and from place to place. Whether it’s commuting to my downtown office everyday or running errands on the weekends, hours are spent on the road often in frustration during jams in construction zones and rush hour traffic. The Lincoln Continental takes this frustration away by giving me a whole new city driving experience. It pampers me with it’s personally tailored features providing quiet luxury at every stop and turn behind the wheel.
The list is endless but below are just a few of my favourite features about the Continental:
The Continental detects your approach and awakens a gentle sequence of activities. Lights project and illuminate on the simple touch latch doors. I love this greeting feature that says “welcome back, I am ready for you”.
Push Button Gears
Shifting from park to drive and back are done by way of pushing buttons along the side of the touch screen display. This is genius and frees up usable space between the driver and passenger seats, enhancing a clean and uncluttered look.
The two-panel all glass panoramic sunroof offers breathtaking views and is fully power retractable with power shades.
19 speaker Revel Ultima Audio System
Mood is everything so listening to good tunes while driving is a must for me. The Revel audio system offers remarkable surround sound bringing every music note to life.
Most important are numerous features to assist with safety. Equipped with multiple sensors and cameras, you can feel confident and secure with the assistance from the blind spot, lane departure and park assistance systems.
30 Way Perfect Position Massage Seats
Last but not least is what I personally love the most about the Continental. Individual controls are located along the front seat doors and offer highly customizable positions to maximize personal comfort. Adjust positions for the shoulders, upper and lower back. And most luxurious of all, the driver and passenger seats are equipped with massaging functionality. Yes, you read that right! Use the touch screen display to control and adjust driver and passenger seat massaging points and intensities. This remarkable feature is why I call the Continental my spa on wheels.
PAMPERING | IN THE COUNTRY
On a beautiful weekend, the roomy and full-sized Continental took my sister and I on the highway to K-country for a mom’s spa weekend of more pampering. We were impressed with how effortlessly smooth and quiet the powerful engine felt during the 1 hour drive at high speeds to the amazing Kananaskis Mountain Lodge and Kananaskis Nordic Spa, a modern alpine santuary.
HOT WARM COLD POOLS
THE POMEROY KANANASKIS LODGE
Nordic hot, warm, and cold pools. Steam & sauna cabins and heated hammocks. Beautiful strolls and mountainous views. Massages in perfect position car seats while driving to and from in the Continental. What more could two moms want in a weekend getaway? We truly could not think of anything more.
Elegant and powerful, the Continental is perfect for those who desire contemporarily designed luxury with superior quality and craftsmanship. A true experience of pampering while driving in or out of the city.
