2020 Lincoln Corsair Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.8

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair has an elegant interior, despite a few disappointing touches in the tech department. The cabin is very quiet, passenger space is excellent, and the seats are comfortable. The Corsair also has straightforward infotainment features and a decent amount of cargo space for the class.

  • "We rather like the Corsair's cabin, where Lincoln clearly spent lavishly on materials. Even the inside door-handle openings are padded, so your fingers ooze into the fabric when you go to close the door." -- Automobile Magazine
  • "The lack of noise works well with the Corsair's updated and luxurious cabin. There are soft-touch surfaces, real wood trim, and an easy-to-use 8.0-inch touchscreen that tops a semi-floating center console layout. Plush and nicely dressed, the interior is Lincoln's greatest departure from its proletarian Ford roots, especially in one of three available two-tone interior color themes." -- Car and Driver
  • "The Corsair’s interior is a delight, with impressive materials quality, design and efficient use of space. Soft leather adorns most of the surfaces you’d touch regularly, including where your knees come in contact with the center console. The only exception would be some hard plastic atop the dashboard and the top of the windowsills, but that’s sort of par for the course for this class." -- Cars.com

Seating

The Lincoln Corsair seats five people. Synthetic leather upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable heated front seats, driver's seat memory settings, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and sliding second-row seats are standard. Options include leather upholstery, 24-way power-adjustable front seats, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. This Lincoln has two sets of rear LATCH connectors for installing child safety seats.

The Corsair offers plenty of space in both rows of seats. The front seats are very comfortable, and outward visibility is great all around.

  • "The back of the cabin is also where the Corsair showcases an intelligent maximization of space. There is plenty of headroom and legroom for adult passengers to fit comfortably, and there are large windows all around, which makes the cabin feel open — even more so if the giant dual-pane panoramic moonroof option is added. Those large windows also aid with driver visibility." -- Cars.com
  • "Those upgraded seats also have massage capability with several different patterns that can really help prevent sore backs after several hours on the road. Even the standard seats in the 2.0-liter which have a mere 10-way adjustment proved to be quite comfortable." -- Forbes
  • "The Corsair’s 10-way power-adjustable seats are quite comfortable, although more indulgent shoppers might appreciate the optional 24-way thrones that include a massage function. Back-seat riders also are treated to more accommodating quarters." -- Car and Driver

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2020 Corsair include proximity keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, remote start, and an 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system with two USB ports, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and a 10-speaker premium stereo.

Optional features include a universal garage door opener, navigation, a panoramic roof, a 14-speaker Revel stereo, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a household-style power outlet, and wireless device charging.

The Corsair’s SYNC 3 infotainment system is easy to use and features clear, sharp graphics. However, some critics think the screen is too small. Also, the available digital instrument cluster is not as capable as what you'll find in SUVs from rivals like Audi.

Standard driver assistance features include forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, automatic high-beam headlights, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, and the MyKey driver monitoring feature.

Optional active safety equipment includes a surround-view parking camera system, adaptive headlights, automatic parking assist, evasive steering assist, reverse automatic emergency braking, stop-and-go adaptive cruise control, speed-limit sign recognition, lane centering assist, front parking sensors, a head-up display, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

  • In the dashboard -- or rather, on the dashboard -- the Corsair features a smaller, 8-inch version of the touchscreen display from the Aviator. It still sticks out like a sore thumb with its tablet-like design, and is still powered by the latest-generation Sync 3 infotainment software. The OEM navigation, apps and interface are quite good and easy to use." -- CNET
  • The touchscreen is a hair too small. It’s an 8-inch screen rather than the 10-inch screen (measured diagonally) that you find in the Aviator — I think the 10-incher would have been a welcome addition here. It’s powered by the excellent Sync 3 multimedia system that I enjoy for its simplicity and ease of use." -- Cars.com
  • An 8-inch touchscreen stands proud atop the dash, and while it is smaller than some, its graphics are sharp and modern. … A digital instrument cluster is available, but it’s somewhat unspectacular, lacking the ability to display the navigation map, for instance, and offering only a modest degree of configurability." -- Autoblog

Cargo

The Lincoln Corsair has 27.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seats and 57.6 cubic feet with the back row folded down. Those values are a little above average for the luxury compact SUV class. A power liftgate is standard; a hands-free liftgate access and a power-folding rear seat are optional.

  • "The Corsair also retains the clamshell hatch design from the MKC, providing a larger opening to the cargo area." -- Forbes
  • "The large cargo area includes some underfloor storage compartments, and the rear seats have fold-down buttons." -- Motor Trend
  • "Behind the rear seats, cargo space expands by 2.4 cubic feet, to 27.6 cubic feet. That's excellent for the segment. Rear seatbacks folded, the Corsair has 57.6 cubic feet, which is 4.5 cubic feet more than before. Those figures better the XT4 and Lexus NX, but are still shy of larger luxury models like the Acura RDX or Volvo XC60." -- Autoblog
