Lincoln introduced the Corsair in 2020 to replace the MKC as its entry-level compact crossover model. An update last year brought a plug-in hybrid powertrain option.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
For 2022, the Corsair is carried forward with no changes.
Lincoln offers the Corsair in Standard, Reserve, and Grand Touring trim levels. The first two start with a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine; Reserve can be optioned with a 2.3L turbo four-cylinder; Grand Touring comes standard with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that works with an electric motor.
Gas models use an eight-speed automatic gearbox, while Grand Touring gets a continuously variable transmission. All-wheel drive is standard across the range.
Standard trim comes with dual-zone A/C, passive keyless entry, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, 8.0-inch infotainment display, navigation, a 10-speaker stereo, heated/power-adjustable front seats, soft-touch upholstery, a power tailgate, and 18-inch wheels.
The Corsair’s basic safety kit comprises blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assist, backup sensors, and forward collision mitigation.
Reserve and Grand Touring trims add a 12.3-inch gauge cluster, hands-free tailgate, leather upholstery, a driver’s side auto-dimming mirror, panoramic sunroof, 19-inch wheels, electric steering wheel adjustments, and an upgraded stereo.
In Standard trim, a premium package adds 19-inch wheels, leather front seats, and a panoramic roof. An elements pack brings a front wiper de-icer, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel, rain-sensing wipers, and ventilated front seats.
In Reserve trim, a tech package bundles upgraded front seats, adaptive headlights, phone-as-a-key, and wireless phone charging.
Lincoln’s fuel consumption estimates for the Corsair are 11.1/8.1 L/100 km (city/highway) for the 2.0L engine, and 11.2/8.3 with the 2.3L. In Grand Touring, ratings are 6.9/7.3 L/100 km when running as a gas-electric hybrid, and 3.1 Le/100 km when using the available 45 km of all-electric range.
Lincoln faces competition for the Corsair from the BMW X3, Audi Q5, Cadillac XT5, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Buick Envision, Porsche Macan, Genesis GV70, Acura RDX, Land Rover Discovery, Lexus NX, Infiniti QX50, Volvo XC60, Jaguar E-Pace, and Alfa Romeo Stelvio.
