Volvo XC40 vs. Lincoln Corsair

Which Luxury SUV Is Best - the New Volvo XC40 or the New Lincoln Corsair?

In Conclusion…

While both the new Volvo XC40 and the new Lincoln Corsair are well-built small luxury SUVs, the XC40 is around six inches shorter, so it's easier to maneuver than the Corsair. It also gets better gas mileage. The XC40 has poised handling that makes it fun to drive. The Corsair rides comfortably, but it has more body roll around turns than the XC40.

Perrysburg drivers will appreciate that the XC40 has a nicer interior, with standard leather upholstery instead of the leatherette seats in base Corsair trims. Despite its plush interior and plethora of standard entertainment, comfort, and safety features, the XC40 has a lower starting price than the Lincoln Corsair.
