Lincoln Corsair Small SUV Gets Updates Bolster 2020 Intro
Just as Lincoln first unveiled its Corsair compact luxury crossover – rounding out the new SUV line-up including the Navigator, Aviator, and Nautilus – the fateful events of 2020 altered the best laid plans.
Developed under recently retired quality and styling boss Joy Falotico, who was credited with giving the very male oriented brand a softer but classier edge, the Corsair is just the tonic to liven up Lincoln.
The fresh looks start up front with a more imposing but still proportionate front grille and restyled headlamps with daytime running light wings. Overall the Corsair pulls off the mini-me version of its larger siblings offering a solid large style ride and a more manageable dynamic driving experience.
The Corsair comes in Standard, Reserve, and Grand Touring trims, equipped with a 250-horsepower turbo 2 liter 4 cylinder sprinting a respectable 0 – 60 sprint in about 6 seconds.
The Grand Touring plug-in hybrid is a 2.5-liter 4 cylinder with an electric motor, and all-wheel drive, boosting it to 266 horsepower.
Inside the $39,000 base Corsair offers supportive seating, ample cargo capacity, dazzling tech and 13.1-inch central touch screen for full command and control.
