Fresh off the New York International Auto Show, the 2020 Lincoln Corsair is the smallest SUV in the company’s lineup. Even still, that doesn’t mean it’s an inferior one. It’s got the same cool dash cluster as on the Navigator, for starters. And it comes standard with safety features care of Lincoln Co-Pilot360. That includes pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection and blind spot monitoring.
With that, you also get adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist. That’s on top of speed sign recognition and stop-go-go assist. You’ll also be able to adjust the speed of your cruise control when you pass by a speed limit change sign. You can turn that feature off if you want, though.
The all-new Corsair comes in this new suspension designed to directly absorb bumps and impacts before they get to the cabin. Customers will be able to pick from two engine options on launch — a 2.0-liter turbocharged four with 250 ponies, or a 2.3-liter with 280 horsepower and 310 pound-foot of torque. It’s not going to be a road killer by any stretch of the imagination, sure. But if it performs anything like Lincoln’s other rides, then that’s easy to forgive, we bet.
The 2020 Lincoln Corsair will also come with Phone as Key via a companion app. With this, not only will you’ll be able to unlock your car, you’ll also have the pleasure of opening windows and turning it on or off remotely. The app will also make note of your personal driving, seating, and media preferences. That’ll be super useful especially if multiple people drive a vehicle.
