Lincoln ActiveGlide 1.2 adds three features to the hands-free driving system to improve the experience and make it feel more natural. The most significant change is the addition of hands-free lane changes. The upgrade can also automatically adjust Corsair’s speed to smoothly navigate a curve and reposition a pirate in its lane to prevent it from getting too close to vehicles in adjacent lanes. You can check out full details about the upgrade in our report above.

Along with the improved ActiveGlide, Lincoln will give Corsair what it calls Intersection Assist 2.0, which it says will better enable Corsair to detect pedestrians while cornering. Blind Spot Assist is another new feature, which provides steering information in an effort to prevent collisions with vehicles detected in Corsair’s blind spot.
