2017 Hyundai Genesis vs. 2017 Lincoln Continental

Car shoppers often find themselves in a position where they have to choose between two vehicles that are seemingly similar. This is not the case with the 2017 Hyundai Genesis and the Lincoln Continental. If you are in the market for a sedan, the Lincoln might seem to have a lot to offer but it certainly does not beat the 2017 Hyundai Genesis. When compared toe-to-toe, it is easy to see why the 2017 Hyundai Genesis would be the better choice between the two.

Design & Style

The Lincoln Continental has an appealing exterior, with smooth flowing lines and a side profile that is aerodynamic as well. The interior seems to be well appointed. However, there are a few issues with it such as the fact that it seems cluttered, particularly around the steering and dashboard. The need to provide more amenities to the driver and passengers has spoilt its interior feel.

The 2017 Hyundai Genesis also has a flowing profile, but has a better stance compared to the Lincoln. When put side by side, the Hyundai looks to be more of a premium product than the Lincoln. The interior of the 2017 Hyundai Genesis is much better than the Lincoln’s, with a well-laid-out dashboard and steering wheel as well as the use of high quality materials which give it a premium interior.

Technology & Safety

Traction control, antilock braking systems, seatbelt pretensioners and USB and Bluetooth-enabled audio systems are present in both vehicles. The 2017 Hyundai Genesis, however, has a lot more to offer in terms of safety and technology. Some of the extra features that are standard in the Hyundai include heated and cooled seats, satellite navigation, audio controls on the steering wheel, blind spot monitoring and rear airbags.


The base model of the 2017 Lincoln Continental is a front-wheel-drive version with a 3.7-liter engine. This gasoline engine is mated to an automatic transmission, and produces 305 horsepower at 6500 rpm.

On the other hand, the base Hyundai Genesis ships with a 3.3-liter V-6 petrol engine capable of producing an impressive 293 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque. This is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The transmission has features such as overdrive lockup, shift lock and a torque converter to ensure smooth power delivery as well as more dependability compared to other vehicles. If you are interested in more power, you can choose from one of the other drivetrain options that are offered by Hyundai.

The Bottom Line

The Lincoln Continental simply can’t hold a candle to the Hyundai Genesis. The Hyundai is better designed and better manufactured, resulting in a vehicle that looks, feels and drives better than the Lincoln. In addition to that, the attention to detail during the design phase of the 2017 Hyundai Genesis means that you need not worry about regular breakdowns; the vehicle is a very reliable.
