Interior of the new Continental is highly luxurious and highly equipped. It comes upholstered in leather, with numerous features for convenience and entertainment. It features big touchscreen placed in the center of the dash. Its spacious cabin has seats that are 30-way adjustable, which is pretty impressive information.
