The 2020 Lincoln Corsair luxury crossover debuts at the 2019 New York Auto Show.

The new model is intended to compete with models such as the Cadillac XT4 and Lexus NX. At 180.6 inches in length, it's somewhere between the BMW X1 and X3 dimensionally. And it's about an inch longer than the outgoing MKC.

Design-wise, the Corsair follows cues set out by other recent Lincoln crossovers like the Nautilus and Aviator, with Lincoln's usual grille shape on the nose, swept-back headlights on the fenders, and what designer David Woodhouse calls "S-curve" surfacing on the body sides, hood and liftgate.

Cargo volume measures a respectable 27.6 cubic feet with the back seats up and 57.6 with them folded down.

With abundant soft leather and wood trim, the cabin feels suitably luxurious. An 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system sits atop the dashboard, below which are found Lincoln's "Piano Key" transmission shift buttons.
