2020 Lincoln Corsair Overview

The all-new 2020 Lincoln Corsair replaces the MKC as Lincoln’s entry-level compact crossover.

If you’ve seen Lincoln’s other recent SUVs, like the Navigator and Aviator, the Corsair’s exterior should be familiar. The large mesh grille, strong side crease, expansive windows, floating roof, and full-width taillight are all present here, adding up to a design that looks crisp, confident, and upscale.

It’s the same story with the interior, whose horizontal themes echo those of Lincoln’s larger crossovers. You can pick any of three two-tone interior themes: Beyond Blue, Cashew, and Medium Slate. And despite being compact, Lincoln claims the Corsair’s sliding second-row seats offer more legroom than many larger luxury SUVs.

One of two turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engines motivates every Corsair: a 2.0-liter unit estimated at 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet and a 2.3-liter with an estimated 280 hp and 310 lb-ft. Both pair with an 8-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive (FWD) will be standard for the smaller engine, while all-wheel drive (AWD) will be standard for the bigger engine and available for the smaller. You can customize your driving experience by selecting from Normal, Excite, Slippery, Deep Conditions, and Conserve driving modes.

Lincoln’s latest portfolio of products puts technology at the forefront, and the Corsair is no exception. For example, the Phone As A Key system enables you to connect a compatible smartphone with the Lincoln Way App to lock, unlock, start, open the liftgate, and drive the Corsair. You can also use the app to grant temporary access to the vehicle to other individuals. And should your phone battery go dead, you can use the keypad to gain access to the vehicle and interior touchscreen to start the vehicle.

Every Lincoln, including the Corsair, comes standard with the brand’s Co-Pilot360 safety suite. It bundles a reversing camera, pre-collision assist with forward automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, and automatic high beams. The available Co-Pilot360 Plus system adds adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and lane centering, evasive-steer assist, reverse automatic emergency braking, and an active park assist. As of this writing, the Corsair has yet to be tested by any major external agency.

The 2020 Corsair gives Lincoln a strong entry point into its brand. Look for official pricing, fuel-economy ratings, and detailed specification lists before its arrival in the fall of 2019.
