2020 Lincoln Corsair - interior Exterior and Drive (Luxury SUV)

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair Is a Refreshingly Unsporty Compact Luxury SUV

It doesn't promise extra power or performance over its MKC predecessor, but Lincoln's new small crossover does look and feel more luxurious.

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair is a new compact crossover that replaces the previous MKC.
It comes with a choice of two turbocharged four-cylinder engines, a 2.0-liter and a 2.3-liter, and will also offer a plug-in-hybrid powertrain eventually.
The Corsair goes on sale in fall 2019, with the plug-in-hybrid version to follow later.

Lincoln likes to say that its philosophical approach to luxury is different than other brands, prioritizing quietness and comfort over sportiness and aggressiveness. That's exemplified in the new 2020 Lincoln Corsair, a small crossover that replaces the MKC. There is little that stands out about the Corsair mechanically, as it uses carryover engines from its predecessor and shares its underpinnings with the Ford Escape, but we do appreciate the work Lincoln has done to raise its luxury quotient. The 2020 Corsair's considerably nicer interior, competitive array of tech features, and reserved exterior design seem poised to make it a significantly more competitive entry in the tough compact-luxury-SUV segment.

The Corsair is slightly longer than the MKC and has an 0.8-inch-longer wheelbase but is otherwise dimensionally similar to its predecessor. Lincoln promises additional rear legroom and a few more cubic feet of cargo space, and the rear seat now slides on a six-inch track.

The Corsair's interior feels more special than the MKC's, with an attractive horizontally oriented dashboard layout with a tablet-style touchscreen and nice design touches such as the "floating" center stack that houses the climate controls. Material quality is an improvement as well, with soft leathers, soft-touch surfaces, and textured open-pore wood on the higher-trim cars we poked around in. Some climate-control and audio knobs still feel a bit chintzy and hollow. Lincoln says it will not offer a Black Label version of the Corsair, but there is a Beyond Blue interior package that adds an extreme-looking turquoise color scheme.
Engine Choices

A turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with 250 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque is the standard engine choice, paired with either front- or all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The upgrade engine is a turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-four with 280 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque; it comes standard with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed auto. Neither of these powertrains is aimed as a performance-oriented choice, and, in contrast to some competitors which pump in fake engine noise, Lincoln instead emphasizes the extra sound insulation it added in the Corsair's dash.

A plug-in-hybrid version of the Corsair is happening and will follow the gas engines by a few months. While Lincoln isn't sharing details about the gasoline-electric powertrain at this point, we assume it will mirror the related Ford Escape plug-in hybrid, which uses a 2.5-liter inline-four as its gasoline engine and has a 14.4-kWh battery pack estimated to provide 30 miles of electric-only range.

There is an impressive array of optional features offered on the Corsair, but we worry that the price will balloon quickly when you add extras such as the 24-way Perfect Position front seats, 14-speaker Revel audio system, and 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. There is also an available head-up display, plus a "phone as a key" option that can allow your smartphone to act as a key fob. Lincoln packages its standard driver-assist features as part of the Co-Pilot360 suite—which includes blind-spot monitoring, automated emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist—while an upgraded Co-Pilot360 Plus is optional and adds features including adaptive cruise control, park assist, and a 360-degree camera system.

When the Corsair goes on sale in fall 2019, we expect it to start a bit higher than the 2019 MKC's base price of $34,990. And with all the extra goodies added, we wouldn't be surprised to see its price approach $60,000.
