2020 Corsair vs. Acura RDX | Ray Pearman Lincoln | Huntsville, AL 

There are several compelling luxury crossover models on the market, but which is truly the best? Here we'll take a close look at the redesigned 2020 Acura RDX and the all-new 2020 Lincoln Corsair to see which offers the best value, comfort, and amenities.

Engine options

When you're picking your perfect vehicle, it's nice to have options. The new Lincoln Corsair has two engine options, while the 2020 Acura RDX has just one engine choice. Both of these models start with turbocharged 2.0-liter engines, but drivers who want more thrill and agility will have to go with the Lincoln Corsair in order to upgrade. This model can be equipped with a peppy 2.3-liter engine that boasts 295 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.

Rear seat comfort

Both of these crossover SUVs have comparable interior space, but the 2020 Lincoln Corsair has one thoughtful feature uncommon for its segment - a sliding and reclining rear seat. The back row of the 2020 Corsair has a 60/40 split-fold rear bench seat that can recline six degrees back. This seat also slides almost six inches forward or back, so you can adjust to make more legroom or more cargo room as needed.

Lower starting price

These two competitors have a similar collection of standard equipment. Both include Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, a Wi-Fi hotspot, an infotainment system on a color touch screen, and driver-assist safety technologies. All of this comes standard in the 2020 Acura RDX, which has a starting Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $37,600. You can get all of this standard in the 2020 Lincoln Corsair as well, but for a more affordable starting MSRP of $35,945.1

Fuel efficiency

When it comes to fuel economy, it's neck and neck, but the 2020 Lincoln Corsair takes the lead. This all-new Lincoln model offers slightly better fuel economy, delivering up to 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.2 The Acura RDX is slightly less, at an estimated 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
