The stylish Corsair is the latest entry in the small luxury SUV segment that shares a platform with the Ford Escape. Yet the more upscale Corsair won’t be confused with the Ford, thanks to its well-appointed cabin, comfortable ride, and lively powertrain. The pricier Lincoln fulfills on the premium promise, delivering refinement throughout.
Interior fit and finish, with plenty of chrome and glossy black trim, is appropriately upscale. The driving position is aided by a "floating" center stack, which is not only a neat styling detail, but frees up right knee space so the driver feels less hemmed in. We weren’t unanimously enamored with the front seats however, because they don’t provide even support. Broad-shouldered drivers will find the seat too confining. The backseat provides ample room and can be moved forward or backward to increase legroom or cargo space.
