Lincoln Corsair 2021: to discover

What if we offered you a Lincoln? Would you be curious, or would you reject the proposal out of hand?

Admit that the question arises. Because the perception of the brand is such that despite the product, many would categorically refuse to identify with it or to drive a vehicle bearing its emblem. It must be said that for far too long, the luxury division of Ford has been dangling an era of rebirth. However, you will admit, childbirth is interminable.

For 2021, the Lincoln range will nevertheless be simplified: we eliminate the only two remaining sedans of the brand, the Continental and MKZ, to keep only the SUVs, thus closing the chapter of MK vehicles. You know, these so-called flowery models that were to relaunch the brand with a series of names reminiscent of these models of yesteryear. The MKC, Z, X, S, T, now all gone, and which will certainly not make history.

As with Infiniti, Genesis or even Acura, we get a Lincoln first for the product itself, and not for the emblem that adorns its hood. The consumer must therefore cross the barrier of the image to focus on the vehicle. And that’s when he has a good chance of being conquered.

Named after a late Edsel marketed over sixty years ago, the Lincoln Corsair, the brand’s smallest SUV, unsurprisingly draws its architecture from the Ford Escape. However, there the parallel with the latter ends, since the body as the passenger compartment are totally different from its close cousin, offering an elegance and a refinement never seen in such a small vehicle of the mark. Indeed, not only does the Corsair attract attention, but it leaves doubt on its identity, which could be confused with that of a German product. Mind you, Lincoln didn’t force the size of its emblems or grille like the competition. However, although certain stylistic details allow us to quickly confirm its American identity, this SUV brilliantly plays an international aesthetic card.

Yet far from a sportsman

If the performance of the Corsair is beyond measure, it is curious that Lincoln did not have the idea of ​​a really more dynamic identity for some of its versions. Admittedly, the awkwardly named option Monochrome set is offered, matching only the rims and the inside of the grille with the bodywork. However, chromium remains omnipresent, which is contrary to what a majority of buyers choose from the competition. Think of Acura, where more than 70% of RDX sales are made through the A-Spec version. Same thing at Audi with S-Line sets, almost delivered on all models sold. Thus, by replacing, for example, chrome with glossy black fittings, we would no doubt also succeed in rejuvenating the image of the brand, still pejorative in the eyes of many.

That said, don’t think the Corsair is incapable of great road prowess. I personally found myself enjoying the handling of this vehicle, even with its base 2.0 liter (250 hp) engine. Obviously, with a gain of 45 horsepower, the option of the turbocharged 2.3-liter engine (295 hp) is to be considered, which does not consume a drop more than the base engine. It must be said that the 2.0-liter is not the most frugal there is, burning without embarrassment about 10 L / 100 km.

Equipped with an optional adjustable suspension and offering various driving modes, the Corsair also impresses with its handling and handling. Lively and nervous, it does not have the precision of an Audi Q5, which does not however make it a clumsy vehicle. On the contrary, its balance and ease of driving are part of its advantages, as well as the palpable quality of manufacture felt on the road. Then, we must also applaud the engineers for knowing how to soundproof it with such rigor that it almost feels like a strong room.

First class

Both classic and contemporary, the Corsair’s interior remains an element of seduction. If several competitors do not give the impression of real luxury vehicles, it is quite different here. The richness of the materials, the elegance of the design, the happy marriage of colors as well as the strong technological presence allow to obtain a cozy environment, where the attention to detail amazes every time. Even the overall ergonomics should be emphasized, although the rear seats are not the most spacious in the segment.

Note, the model being tested had the benefit of a long list of options, which of course helped to raise the level of luxury and comfort in the interior. Technology and safety options, as well as seats that are adjustable in countless ways, admittedly comfortable, but with which the perfect driving position is ironically difficult to find.

Obviously, with these options comes a cost which, in this case, was rather difficult to swallow. In fact, with this Ultra version, a sum of $ 13,300 attributable to options had to be considered, in addition to the $ 50,500 required for the vehicle itself. Adding to that the costs of transport and preparation, the total bill came close to $ 66,000.

So no, the Corsair is no bargain. And since residual values ​​are not necessarily as competitive as those of German brands or Lexus, the lease terms can quickly get disillusioned. As proof, a monthly rental payment of $ 969 (taxes and fees included) for the trial model. However, you could very well do without many of these options while still enjoying a downright attractive vehicle. An element which, all in all, is essential for the acquisition of the Corsair, which becomes less and less interesting as the bill climbs.

When is the plug-in hybrid?

Called Grand Tourisme, the plug-in hybrid version of the Corsair was due to land last fall. However, as with the Escape PHEV, a design flaw in the system forced engineers to go back to the drawing board, delaying its arrival on the market by almost a year. It is therefore currently difficult for us to assess the real effectiveness of this model.

Until then, see the Corsair for what it is. A refined, convincing product, much more pleasant to drive than you might think, and which deserves consideration especially for the buyer looking for a good balance between comfort and driving pleasure. However, keep in mind that the depreciation may be higher than the average and that it is essential to be moderate with the options.
