Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Highlander than in the Lincoln Corsair, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln Corsair offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Highlander, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lincoln Corsair as you will with the Toyota Highlander, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Lincoln Corsair is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Highlander. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Lincoln Corsair will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Highlander.

Dimensions
Since the Lincoln Corsair is much slimmer than the Toyota Highlander, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Lincoln Corsair, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Highlander.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Highlander is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Corsair for pulling heavy loads. The Lincoln Corsair has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Highlander.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lincoln Corsair transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota Highlander.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Lincoln Corsair seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Highlander. The Lincoln Corsair has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota Highlander.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lincoln Corsair than that of the Toyota Highlander.
