The all-new Lincoln Corsair, expressively designed and effortlessly agile, has arrived as a spacious two-row SUV that combines refined power and a whisper-quiet ride in a luxurious setting.
The all-new Lincoln Corsair stands out in the small premium utility vehicle segment by offering a turbocharged engine more powerful than several competitors, new-to-segment second row seat slider providing maximum leg room (980mm), plus a wealth of amenities typically found only in larger utilities, the company said.
Staying true to its Quiet Flight DNA, the all-new Lincoln Corsair delivers an effortless yet sprightly drive experience. A turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with Auto Start-Stop technology is offered with 245 horsepower and 373 Nm of torque and is mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission.
Lincoln’s intelligent all-wheel-drive system allows for enhanced all-weather capabilities and impressive performance. All-wheel-drive disconnect capability enables a seamless switch between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive in response to road, speed, temperature and other conditions, helping to optimise efficiency for all season confidence behind the wheel and an enhanced ride for passengers.
Lincoln drive modes are other intuitive features on the all-new Corsair, allowing for seamless customisation of the drive experience. Standard modes include normal, conserve, excite, slippery and deep conditions. Each is fully integrated – clients simply select the mode and Corsair handles the rest.
As quietness is paramount, Lincoln designers and engineers obsessed over every single detail to create a sanctuary for the senses in the all-new Corsair. To help ensure a whisper-quiet ride, a dual-wall dashboard in the engine compartment provides an additional sound-dampening barrier between passengers and the engine. Active Noise Control also enhances overall sound quality, the company said.
The calming atmosphere is further enhanced by six unique symphonic chimes. These crystalline chimes, recorded by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, replace standard electronic alerts to inform drivers of everything from an open fuel door to an unbuckled seat belt.
A specially tuned 14-speaker Revel premium audio system also is available, allowing clients to further envelop themselves in sound. Placement, tuning, calibration and the number of Revel speakers are all unique to each Lincoln vehicle, designed to tailor audio quality and accuracy to individual cabin size and acoustics.
To help provide additional peace of mind for clients, Corsair offers a wealth of standard and available driver-assist features. The vehicle comes standard with Lincoln Co-Pilot360, which includes Pre Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Detection with Cross-Traffic Alert, a Lane-Keeping System, Rear View Camera and Auto High Beam Headlamps.
A large eight-inch capacitive centre LCD touchscreen with swipe and pinch-to-zoom capability serves as a portal to SYNC 3 with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, enabling Corsair customers to manage audio, phone and navigation.
Steering wheel-mounted controls are also available for some of these functions. There are also multiple power outlets within the cabin, with two 12V auxiliary ports, and four USB ports ready to keep one’s devices charged.
“The all-new Corsair is an exciting addition to the Lincoln line-up, and has the technology and power that best complements our customers’ lifestyle,” said Nicolas Lory, managing director of Lincoln Direct Markets. “Rounding out our SUV portfolio, Corsair continues Lincoln’s momentum following the recent launch of the all-new Aviator, and provides a compelling choice in the highly competitive small premium SUV segment.”
The new Corsair brings signature Lincoln features luxury customers have come to love, delivered in a small SUV package, and is available in showrooms now. -- TradeArabia News Service
