Lincoln Gives 2023 Corsair ActiveGlide Hands-Off Driver Assist

Smallest Lincoln gets big upgrades for 2023

  • ActiveGlide 1.2 comes to Corsair

  • Facelift for 2023 model means more tech


 

Lincoln is upgrading the compact Corsair for 2023, giving the company’s best-seller ActiveGlide hands-off driver assistance. The littlest Lincoln will also get infotainment software updates, a bigger center screen, and some new interior colour picks.

ActiveGlide 1.2, the updated version of Ford and Lincoln’s hands-off driver assistance system, is the big news. At speeds up to 130 km/h, the system can handle steering duties as well as acceleration and braking. The partner to Ford’s BlueCruise, it requires the driver to watch the road, but not touch the controls on qualified sections of roadway.

With version 1.2, Lincoln has added automated lane changes (just signal and the car does the rest), predictive speed assist (it slows down more smoothly and earlier for sharp corners), and in-lane repositioning (moves the vehicle to the opposite side of the lane if you’re beside something like a large truck). It also has Intersection Assist 2.0 to help prevent striking pedestrians and an upgraded blind spot collision avoidance system.

Inside, a new 13.2-inch screen has been fitted. It has Sync4 and Lincoln Enhance software updates that include Alexa hands-free. The cabin will be available in Smoked Truffle and Eternal Red. A new optional Auto Air Refresh system works to clean cabin air from pollen and pollutants.

The 2023 Lincoln Corsair gets a facelift, too, with a new grille and new headlights. Crystal Red and Whisper Blue paints are added. Corsair will be offered with 250 hp 2.0L turbo-four and 2.5L PHEV Corsair Grand Touring, starting early next year.
