Compare the 2021 Lincoln Corsair to the Competition

When shopping for a compact luxury SUV, your choices may feel limitless at times. That's where Beau Townsend Lincoln, located in Dayton, is here to help. See where the popular 2021 Lincoln Corsair outshines others in its class, such as the Volvo XC40, the BMW X3, and the Audi Q5. You may be surprised.

The Lincoln Corsair vs. the Volvo XC40

Both of these models it at small stances, similar starting price points, and features luxury from the standard trim. However, there are certainly many aspects that make the Corsair stand above the Volvo XC40. Starting with the design, the Lincoln Corsair features a brand-new design for 2021. A refreshed grille, large tail lamps, and striking, sweeping body lines give it an air of sophistication and class. Not to mention, the interior is extremely roomy, offering 27.6-cubic-feet of cargo volume.

That's not to say that the Volvo XC40 isn't well designed, but it relies on quirky styling, offers a boxier stance, and presents shoppers with loud and bold interior upholstery options that may not be to everyone's tastes. Not to mention, you'll lose on space in the Volvo, with less passenger volume and only 20.7-cubic-feet of cargo space. The Corsair also succeeds with its powertrain, offering 250-horsepower output and 280-pound-feet of torque from the standard trim, which trumps the Volvo model's 187-horsepower and 221-pound-feet of torque.

The Lincoln Corsair vs. the BMW X3

Both the Lincoln and the BMW models offer comfortable seating for five, standard turbocharged four-cylinder engines, and all-wheel drive capability on the base model. However, there are several key differences Dayton drivers will want to know about. Beginning with the price point, the Lincoln model is several thousand less than the BMW for the base trim. Considering both have extremely similar standard features, you can get all the luxury you need for much less.

In terms of performance, the Lincoln Corsair excels when compared to the BMW SUV. Both are equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 and an eight-speed automatic transmission at the standard level, but the Corsair produces 250-horsepower and 280-pound-feet of torque with this configuration, while the BMW only produces 248-horsepower and 258-pound-feet of torque.

The Lincoln Corsair vs. the Audi Q5

Once again, both of these five-seat models are equipped with similar engines, feature a compact stance, and pack even their base level models full of luxurious comfort, tech, and safety features. In terms of design, it comes down to personal preference, as both the Lincoln Corsair and the Audi Q5 feature striking luxury looks and refined interiors.

The Lincoln Corsair offers the same 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engine configuration as the Audi, but comes in at thousands of dollars less than the standard model of the Q5. With that powerful engine, drivers can expect better fuel economy from the Corsair, as well as increased power. The Audi produces 248-horsepower and 273-pound-feet of torque, falling beneath the Corsair model's 250-horsepower and 280-pound-feet of torque. Also, expect smoother shifts with the Lincoln Corsair model's standard eight-speed transmission as compared to the Audi model's standard seven-speed transmission.
