2020 Lincoln Corsair Lands IIHS Top Safety Pick Designation

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair was an important model for the luxury brand when it launched this year. The vehicle has a pair of engine options with a standard 2.0-liter four making 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque and a 2.3-liter making 295 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. The Corsair has now been rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the vehicle landed the highly coveted Top Safety Pick designation. Lincoln says that the 2020 Lincoln Corsair earned superior ratings on both its standard and optional vehicle-to-vehicle front crash prevention systems.

The Corsair also earned an acceptable rating for the available curve-adaptive LED projector headlights. The available Jeweled Headlamps enable both Camera-Based Dynamic Bending Lightning and Speed-Dependent Lighting technologies. There are important technologies for Corsair owners.

Camera-Based Dynamic Bending Lightning uses the front camera of the Corsair to read the road ahead, and when a corner is sensed, the Corsair predicts where the light is needed and aims the light. Speed-Dependent Lighting automatically adjusts the intensity of the beam depending on the speed. The faster the while travels, the light is directed at the road. At slower speeds, the headlamp adjusts to illuminate areas around the vehicle.

Lincoln notes that for the Corsair to land the 2019 Top Safety Pick designation, it had to earn good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side and roof strength, and head restraint tests. It also needed a good or acceptable rating in the passenger-side small overlap front test. The vehicle also has to earn an advanced or superior rating for vehicle-to-vehicle front crash prevention and a good or acceptable front headlight rating. Ford recently landed an IIHS Top Safety Pick Designation for the 2019 Ford Edge.

    If I had the funds, I’d had bought the new Lincoln Corsair! I recently bought a new, 2019, Ford Eco Sport, Titanium, 4X4. In-spite of it, the Eco Sport’s an “ok,” vehicle!!!
