The verdict: Lincoln’s MKC compact SUV gets a new name and a new look for 2020. The new Corsair has seats for five and shares much of its architecture with the Ford Escape. Although it’s compact in size, its backseat was roomy enough to hold two car seats and they installed easily in our testing.
Does it fit three car seats? No
Take a look at how the Latch system and each car seat scored below in our Car Seat Check of the 2020 Lincoln Corsair.

- Latch: The two sets of lower anchors are exposed, and easy to see and use. The three top tether anchors sit near the top of the seatback, and are also clearly marked and easy to use.
- Forward-facing convertible: After raising the raised head restraint, the seat fit well. We had no issues connecting to the lower anchors or the top tether anchor.
- Booster: We again raised the head restraint to ensure the booster was sitting flush against the seatback. The SUV’s stable buckles should make it easier for kids to buckle up independently.
- Infant seat: The installation was easy, but we moved the front passenger seat up a bit to fit this car seat. Our 5-foot-6-inch-tall passenger had OK legroom.
- Rear-facing convertible: Again, the seat went in easily, but we had to keep the front passenger seat in the moved-up position.
About Cars.com’s Car Seat Checks
Editors Jennifer Geiger, Jennifer Newman and Matt Schmitz are certified child safety seat installation technicians.
For the Car Seat Check, we use a Graco SnugRide Classic Connect 30 infant-safety seat, a Britax Marathon convertible seat and Graco TurboBooster seat. The front seats are adjusted for a 6-foot driver and a shorter passenger. The three child seats are installed in the second row. The booster seat sits behind the driver’s seat, and the infant and convertible seats are installed behind the front passenger seat.
We also install the forward-facing convertible in the second row’s middle seat with the booster and infant seat in the outboard seats to see if three car seats will fit; a child sitting in the booster seat must be able to reach the seat belt buckle. If there’s a third row, we install the booster seat and a forward-facing convertible. Learn more about how we conduct our Car Seat Checks.
Parents should also remember that they can use the Latch system or a seat belt to install a car seat, and that Latch anchors have a weight limit of 65 pounds, including the weight of the child and the weight of the seat itself.
