Lincoln Corsair Among Most Satisfying Luxury SUVs Of 2024

The Lincoln Corsair – which was just treated to a mid-cycle refresh for the 2023 model year – continues to rack up accolades as a favorite in the compact luxury crossover space. Most recently, that includes making the cut on Consumer Reports‘ list of the 10 best luxury SUVs on sale right now, as well as one of the most satisfying models in its segment as well. Thus, it should probably come as no surprise to learn that the Lincoln Corsair also ranked among Consumer Reportsmost satisfying luxury SUVs of 2024, too.

As is always the case, CR‘s list of the most satisfying vehicles comes straight from its owner surveys, and more specifically, one particular question – “given the opportunity, would you buy or lease this vehicle again?” The percentage of owners that respond with a “definitely yes” are what constitutes a vehicle’s overall score. When determining this most recent set of rankings for 2024, Consumer Reports limited eligible vehicles to include only compact and compact luxury SUVs/crossovers, which were then divided up by segment.

In the compact luxury SUV space, the Lincoln Corsair ranked fifth with an overall score of 72 out of 100 possible points, placing it behind the Lexus NX450h+, the BMW X3, the Lexus NX350h, and the Mini Cooper Countryman. In addition to being popular among owners, Consumer Reports also gave the Corsair a solid road test score, coupled with average predicted reliability and owner satisfaction scores.

The consumer organization praised the Lincoln Corsair for its copious amounts of power, the availability of the plug-in hybrid Grand Touring model, its responsive handling, comfortable ride, and quiet cabin. It wasn’t as big a fan of the lack of front seat bottom support for longer drives, however, as well as the “unintuitive” gear selector, but did praise the crossover’s fit and finish inside the cabin.

    Well, I am one of the owners of 2023 Corsair who is NOT satisfied. In the fall of 2023 Lincoln promised the 1.3 BlueCruise. It is six months later and the 1.3 BlueCruise is still only a distant vaporware.

    If only they were as reliable as they are appealing (at first). Dropping the 2.3L certainly didn’t help.

    I love my 2021 Corsair so much! It handles extremely well. I only hope that I can afford to lease the 2024 model— I’m due for a new one in May so I hope it’ll b affordable!
