Want to learn more about these vehicles? Our team at Redwood City INFINITI have put together this INFINITI QX50 vs. Lincoln Corsair comparison to show you which SUV is right for your next move. Keep reading below to get started.

INFINITI QX50 vs Lincoln Corsair: Performance & Comfort

An all-day-long shopping spree needs an early start. You won’t need to make a pitstop at your favorite café with the INFINITI QX50 or Lincoln Corsair’s steadfast performances. In fact, they both utilize matching traction on the roadways—280 lb-ft of torque!

However, if you’re looking for a bit more pep in your step, the INFINITI QX50’s 2.0L VC-Turbo™ engine can output more horsepower than the Corsair’s 2.0L Turbocharged engine:

  • INFINITI QX50 Horsepower: 268 horsepower
  • Lincoln Corsair Horsepower: 250 horsepower

As you’re out dominating the Cali roadways, you and your front passenger will be able to dive into comfort with these standard features on both SUVs:

  • Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control system
  • Power Adjustable Front Seats with Lumbar Support
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel

For a more premium touch to your excursion, the INFINITI QX50 standardizes leatherette seating, while the Lincoln offers soft-touch seating.

INFINITI QX50 vs Lincoln Corsair: Technology

Nothing pairs better with a highway or backroad like some killer tunes. Fortunately, both SUVs’ infotainment systems are compatible with these integration systems:

  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™

However, INFINITI QX50 drivers can also link up their phones with Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System. This system works well with the hands-free text messaging assistant! Unfortunately, the Lincoln Corsair goes without this integration.

So, when you’re on the way home from work and want to know what kind of pizza your spouse wants from your favorite pizzeria, you can message them without taking your hands off the wheel.

INFINITI QX50 vs Lincoln Corsair: Safety & Cargo

When it comes to these luxury SUVs, safety is prioritized. Both the INFINITI QX50 and Lincoln Corsair offer these similar driver-assistive safety features:

  • Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Predictive Forward Collision Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Standard safety is a great way to keep your precious cargo safe on any drive ahead. Fortunately, both the INFINITI QX50 and Lincoln Corsair offer impressive cargo room for you to fill up:


Cargo Volume Behind First Row

Cargo Volume Behind Second Row


65.1 cubic feet

31.4 cubic feet

Lincoln Corsair

57.6 cubic feet

27.6 cubic feet

If you have a full house, you may be able to carry more items in the trunk of the Corsair. However, if you need more space to help your kid move into their first college dorm, or you’re packing for a two-week vacation at a national park, the INFINITI QX50 will offer more space behind the first row.

INFINITI QX50 vs Lincoln Corsair: Ready To Choose?

As a luxurious SUV, it’s difficult to choose between such capable and stunning vehicles. However, our team at Redwood City INFINITI believes its faster engine, advanced connectivity, and grander cabin space make the INFINITI QX50 superior to the Lincoln Corsair.
