2020 Lincoln Corsair vs. Its Competition

2020 Lincoln Corsair first drive
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair competes in the cutthroat class of luxury compact crossovers, and there are many good choices.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC is a classy pick with dressy curves this year, the interior and exterior were lightly redone to be a little smoother and more refined.

The BMW X3 is another very solid pick in the class, we like the base turbo-4 and the way it drives.

The Lexus NX offers a hybrid-powered option, although its interior is a little cramped.

The Acura RDX has a competent turbo-4 and 10-speed that’s engaging to drive, even though we’re not as sold on its infotainment.

The Cadillac XT4 is also a competent performer, but the interior falls down a little in base versions.
