Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lincoln Corsair offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volkswagen Atlas, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Lincoln Corsair and the Volkswagen Atlas.

Convenience

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).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lincoln Corsair will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Atlas.
