Lincoln Corsair

Model Year

Editors' First Take

Meet the replacement for the Ford Escape-based Lincoln MKC. The 2020 Lincoln Corsair hits the road this fall with a new look, loads of new technology and a new attitude. But it's not just an update with a catchy new name. The Corsair -- alongside the three-row Aviator -- is the harbinger of a sort of renaissance within the Lincoln brand, debuting smart new technologies and performance aimed at elevating the automaker in the luxury space.

In the sheetmetal, the Corsair is surprisingly small, even for this already compact luxury class. The Lincoln's 180.6-inch length is a bit shorter than the Lexus NX (182 inches) and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class (183.3 inches), slotting somewhere between the Audi Q3 (177 inches) and Q5 (184 inches). The Lincoln's small stature is exaggerated slightly by concave doors that curve inward, creating the SUV equivalent of a narrow waist.

Up front, the Corsair features the same design elements as the new Aviator, including the notched chrome grill with hexagonal cutouts echoing the Lincoln star badge. Jewel LED headlamps are matched with sharp daytime running lights. The entire front end is more upright than the outgoing MKC, which makes the Corsair look a bit like the cutest little Navigator you ever did see. Out back, sharp taillights stretch across the SUV's Audi-esque rear end, just beneath an integrated spoiler that adds a sporty finish to the Corsair's silhouette.
