Magna said it had received a special Lincoln Luxury World Excellence Award from Ford for its supply deals for the new Continental.

The Canadian supplier makes the complete seat system for the vehicle, including the 'perfect position' driver and passenger seats with 30-way adjustability and optional 1rear seats with power lumbar support, heating and cooling, and recline.

After making its debut in Europe the supplier's SmartLatch is now used in North America on the Continental. It's a fully electronic door latching system with no cables and rods inside the door structure, contributing to weight savings.

The front end module delivered on time and in sequence is one of 10 Magna-designed exterior parts for the Lincoln.

Magna also provides two driver-assistance systems on the 2017 Continental: standard equipment includes a mega-pixel camera that provides views for the driver to see what's behind the car and 180-degree cross traffic. Available as an option is an enhanced system with four mega-pixel cameras and an electronic control unit to provide the driver with 360-degree, high-resolution surround view, in addition to views that allow the driver to see clearly what's behind, in front and 180-degree cross traffic.
