These days, drivers around the country are taking a more serious stance on vehicle safety. Today’s consumer demands a car that is safe to drive, has high accident avoidance, and can still perform at a high level. Thanks to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and other organizations, customers can get simple and to the point safety ratings for today’s cars. For the 2012 model year, Lincoln had four IIHS Top Safety Picks including MKZ, MKT, MKX, and MKS. Each of these honored vehicles was compared to its class and found to be superior in areas of safety and accident avoidance.
Hassett of Wantagh truly stands behind the Lincoln product thanks to their track record with safety. The IIHS’s stringent process of choosing Top Safety picks starts with evaluations of numerous real world situations such as frontal crashes, side impacts, rollovers, and rear collisions.
For more of an idea on what a side impact test can look like view this video shot in 2010 which depicts an MKT absorbing impacts from a NHSTA test:
Lincoln’s wide variety of vehicle types is evident thanks to awards earned in the segments of Large Luxury Cars (MKS), Midsize Luxury SUVs (MKT & MKX), and Midsize Luxury (MKZ).
