Which one has the space, features, and performance you are looking for? Our Richmond Lincoln team takes a closer look at the 2021 Lincoln Corsair vs. Acura RDX to help you decide.

A Look Inside the Lincoln Corsair vs Acura RDX

Inside both models, you will have a lot of the same premium features to help keep you comfortable whenever you drive. Heated, power-adjustable front seats let you customize your comfort, too, when seated behind the wheel.

You can also opt for the available Perfect Position front seats in the Lincoln Corsair, which feature 24-way adjustability and five different massage settings. Each model also comes with a Dual-zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control system that lets you and your front passenger each set the system however warm or cool you'd like your side.

Inside the Lincoln Corsair, though, you will have more legroom up front while driving. With 43.2 inches of front legroom in the 2021 Lincoln Corsair, compared to the 42 inches inside the RDX, this Lincoln SUV gives you more room to stretch out and comfortably situate yourself for the drive.

Tech Systems in These Two Crossovers

Again, you'll find a lot of the same technology systems within both models. This includes the smartphone integration you'll get with their infotainment systems and the various driver-assistive technologies that help give you a safe commute.

Looking more closely, though, you'll notice some cutting-edge features that are only available in the 2021 Lincoln Corsair. This includes the added convenience of Lincoln+Alexa, which gives you all the skills of Amazon Alexa as you drive.

Plus, the Lincoln Corsair offers available Active Park Assist Plus. This system can guide the vehicle into parallel or perpendicular parking spots by automatically controlling the steering, braking, accelerating, and shifting. 

The Performance of the Lincoln Corsair vs Acura RDX

Both of these crossovers handle the roads extremely well with various standard and available systems built into their overall design. From advanced suspension systems to switchable driving modes, controlled and fun handling is found at all times.

While each also has a standard engine that creates 280 lb-ft of torque, the 2021 Lincoln Corsair offers a second engine option with its available 2.3L turbocharged I-4 engine. This produces 295 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. The 2021 RDX maxes out at 272 horsepower.

As far as gas mileage, the Acura RDX gets an EPA-estimated 22 city/28 highway MPG. The Lincoln Corsair enjoys a slightly better fuel economy, as it gets an EPA-estimated 22 city/29 highway MPG.1 While that may not seem like a big difference, that extra mileage adds up quickly when heading out on a road trip or if your daily commute to work is spent along the highways.
