The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently announced that two Lincoln SUVs have earned TOP SAFETY PICK honors. The 2021 Lincoln Corsair earned this recognition for the third consecutive year, while the 2021 Lincoln Aviator won for the second year in a row.
To score the title of TOP SAFETY PICK, a vehicle must earn the highest rating of “Good” in six crashworthiness tests: driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints. It also must receive the rating of “Advanced” or Superior” for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian crash prevention, along with an “Acceptable” headlight rating.
The 2021 Aviator earned a “Good” rating on its available Adaptive Pixel LED Headlamps, and almost earned an “Acceptable” on its standard LED headlights. Otherwise, the Aviator had top ratings across the IIHS testing.
The Corsair’s available jeweled LED headlights earned an “Acceptable” rating. Both vehicles also earned a “Superior” rating on their standard Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, while the version available with the Lincoln Co-Pilot™ 360 Plus suite earned an “Advanced” rating.
