ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Lincoln is proving to the luxury car world that it's serious about electrifying its lineup. It began when the Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring debuted this fall as the brand's first plug-in hybrid, and now it's being joined by the Corsair Grand Touring. This is a plug-in hybrid variant of the all-new Corsair, which has replaced the MKC as Lincoln's compact crossover.

Electrified Luxury

Under the hood of the Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring is a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle inline-four gas engine accompanied by a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor. Lincoln says that the total system output is 266 horsepower and that it's going for an all-electric range of more than 25 miles. That means the Corsair Grand Touring is more about efficiency and is less performance-oriented than its bigger sibling, the Aviator Grand Touring.

An interesting detail about the hybrid version of the Corsair is its new electric all-wheel-drive system -- the first of its kind in a Lincoln. It uses what Lincoln calls the PowerSplit electric continuously variable transmission. Two electric motors provide a smooth driving experience with power at all four wheels when you need it. This improves dry-road performance and all-season traction.

The Corsair Grand Touring has the same drive modes as the nonhybrid Corsair (Normal, Conserve, Excite, Slipper and Deep Conditions) and adds two more specific to the hybrid. There's Preserve EV, which does exactly what you think -- it preserves and recharges the hybrid battery in case you want to save your electric power for later. This would make sense for highway use, which normally eats into the electric range of a PHEV. The other new drive mode is Pure EV, which is designed to keep the Corsair in all-electric mode as much as possible.

Sanctuary for the Senses

Quietness is a new part of the Lincoln brand identity, and that's certainly part of the Corsair Grand Touring. This crossover is what Lincoln calls a "sanctuary for the senses," with a cabin that's carefully engineered to be quiet. On top of the quiet hybrid powertrain, Lincoln added additional sound-deadening material and Active Noise Control technology, which uses microphones and cancels out frequencies that contribute to noise.

The Corsair Grand Touring retains its generous interior space despite the additional hardware needed to make it a hybrid. Under-floor battery packaging means you still get a good-sized cargo hold, and sliding and reclining back seats allow you to customize your passenger and cargo space however you'd like.

Another thing that this new hybrid has in common with the regular Corsair is standard Lincoln Co-Pilot360, a suite of driver-assistance technology that includes automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert and a lane-keeping system. A couple of styling cues that set the Grand Touring apart are unique 20-in wheels and a unique grille with the Lincoln star emblem in Spirit Blue, a color used on some classic Lincoln models.

When Can I Get One?

The Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring will join the lineup in the summer of 2020. Lincoln has not yet confirmed pricing for the Grand Touring model, but if you're interested in the nonhybrid Corsair, it's available now with a starting price of $35,945. Find a Lincoln Corsair for sale
