Lincoln Corsair Earns Top Safety Pick from IIHS for Front Crash Prevention Systems, Adaptive Headlamps

DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 19, 2019 – Superior ratings on its front crash prevention systems helped the all-new 2020 Lincoln Corsair qualify for a coveted TOP SAFETY PICK award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair, a small luxury SUV, earned superior ratings for both its standard and optional vehicle-to-vehicle front crash prevention systems, and also earned an acceptable rating for its available curve-adaptive LED projector headlights.

Corsair’s available Jeweled Headlamps enable both Camera-Based Dynamic Bending Lighting and Speed-Dependent Lighting technologies.

  • Camera-Based Dynamic Bending Lighting: Through Corsair’s front camera, the vehicle reads the road ahead and when a corner is sensed, Corsair predicts where light is needed, allowing the headlamps to instantly adjust, or “bend.”
  • Speed-Dependent Lighting: The intensity of the beam is adjusted based on the speed of the vehicle; at faster speeds, light is directed to the road, while at slower speeds, the headlamp adjusts to illuminate more areas around the vehicle.

To qualify for a 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK award, a vehicle must earn good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as a good or acceptable rating in the passenger-side small overlap front test. It also needs an advanced or superior rating for vehicle-to-vehicle front crash prevention and a good or acceptable headlight rating.
