The 2017 Lincoln Continental is all set for its China debut at the upcoming 2016 Beijing Motor Show later this month. Before the event the luxury sedan has been spotted on Chinese roads undisguised. Although Lincoln assembles their other models in China locally, but the flagship sedan will be imported to the country from US through CBU route. Therefore it will get a price tag around 1 million Yuan, which is equivalent around USD 150000. The amount is more than double the price of the Lincoln Continental in US. This sky high price will be the result of the higher import tax levied by the Chinese government.
Lincoln first unveiled Continental concept at the 2015 New York Motor Show and the car looks very much identical to the concept model. It gets sleek LED headlamps, chrome garnished front grille. The front bumper also dons chrome accents and appears with a horizontal slated look. The side profile of the car looks similar to the concept as well; the door handles are positioned oddly although.
At the rear profile the car sports sleek LED taillights and dual exhaust vents. Altogether the car exhibits style and elegance. The car gets exclusive lighting sequence which welcomes the owners when they approach the vehicle. The LED signature lights at the lower front fascia and the taillights get engaged and the signature light in the LED headlamps light up in a fluidic gesture.
The interior exhibits style, elegance, luxurious feature and premium quality, truly deserving the Continental badging. The steering wheel, instrument cluster, dashboard, large touchscreen infotainment screen everything is placed so neatly, that cannot arouse any question. The China spec Lincoln Continental will draw power from a 3.0 litre Ecoboost V6 engine, which is paired with a nine speed automatic transmission sending power to all the four wheels. This powertrain churns out 400 hp of peak power and massive 542 Nm of peak torque.
