Deciding to get behind the wheel of a luxury car is a major decision. Now you need to decide which model is right for you.

If you're unsure whether to choose the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus or Lincoln Corsair, then you're in the right place. Allow our team at Hixon Lincoln Alexandria to show you which one will best fit your Alexandria, Rapides, and Castor Plunge, LA, drives. 

Lincoln Nautilus vs Lincoln Corsair: Performance and Efficiency

In the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus and Lincoln Corsair, a 2.0-liter I-4 turbocharged engine delivering 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque comes standard. No matter which of these SUVs appeals to you, the baseline motor is sure to deliver a dynamic blend of power to your commute.

However, when it comes to their available engines, there are some key differences:

2.7L V6 Twin-Turbocharged

2.3L I-4 Turbocharged




Torque (lb-ft)



If you're looking for a little extra pep on your daily drive, then you'll want to upgrade to the available powertrain in the Lincoln Nautilus. However, if you want a more eco-friendly ride, choose the Lincoln Corsair, which earns an EPA-estimated 22 city/29 highway MPG.1

The Lincoln Nautilus is also an efficient SUV with an EPA-estimated 21 city/26 highway MPG, but you may have to stop at the pump a few extra times.1

Space for All Your Essentials

The 2021 Lincoln Nautilus and Lincoln Corsair make space for five, so either option has room for your kids in the back. If you want to make sure all their soccer gear will fit as well, then you'll want to check which SUV has the right amount of cargo space for you:

Lincoln Nautilus

Behind Rear Row: 37.2 cubic feet

Behind Front Row: 68.8 cubic feet

Lincoln Corsair

Behind Rear Row: 27.6 cubic feet

Behind Front Row: 57.6 cubic feet

In either Lincoln model, fitting groceries and weekend bags in the rear will be simple. 

Keep Your Family Safe

When choosing a vehicle, nothing is more important than safety, especially when your little ones are in the backseat. Both the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus and Lincoln Corsair come standard with Lincoln Co-Pilot360™ designed to keep you out of harm's way with the following systems:

  • Blind Spot Detection with Cross-Traffic Alert: Monitors your side blind zones and alerts you to approaching cars.
