Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Lincoln Nautilus has a score of 88, implying a 0.032% chance of driver death (2.8% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.027%, and the chance of injury falls to 2.4%.

We estimate that the 2022 Lincoln Nautilus has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0316% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.6061%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0316% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.6061% chance of being injured.

Active safety systems that are standard on the Lincoln Nautilus include: Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keeping System, and BLIS Blind Spot Detection with Cross-Traffic Alert.

Some safety technologies get a lot of press, but others may also improve safety. Side mirror turn signals are standard on the Lincoln Nautilus.
