For such a large vehicle, the Ford Edge delivers a reassuringly car-like driving experience and offers a comfortable ride in its roomy cabin. This sizeable SUV is also well-specified and is available in Zetec, Titanium and Sport trims.
Impressive-looking and stylish, the Edge boasts a number of exciting touches, including 19-inch alloy wheels, an eye-catching rear spoiler, fetching black roof rails and privacy glass in the rear windows. Other standard elements include electrically adjustable and foldable side mirrors, featuring indicator lights and puddle lights. Further illumination includes automatic headlights, front fog lamps and LED rear lights, while rain-sensing wipers are fitted to a heated Quickclear windscreen.
A five-seat cabin offers plenty of head and legroom for everyone on board. Front-row occupants are treated to multiway-adjustable front seats, and the driver can get to grips with a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob. Ford Power Starter Button is included, ensuring the car’s key doesn’t need to be used to start the engine. Other standard features include cruise control with speed-limiter, a rear-view camera, an electric parking brake, dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control and electric front and rear windows. With all seats up, boot capacity is an already-substantial 602 litres; with seats folded, this capacity increases to 1,402 litres
Two 2.0-litre diesel engines are available for the Edge. A 207bhp unit, paired with six-speed automatic transmission, delivers 450Nm of torque, 0-60mph in approximately 9.5 seconds and a top speed of 131mph. Alternatively, a 178bhp engine, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, is slightly more fuel-efficient, returning 48.7mpg and a 149g/km CO2 emissions figure.
A colour touchscreen display, a nine-speaker sound system (including DAB radio and a CD player) and SYNC 2 with voice control, are all featured as standard. Active noise control minimises unwanted external sounds, enabling you to properly enjoy your favourite audio content.
Safety features include Lane-Keeping Aid, ensuring that you don’t inadvertently drift out of lane, and traffic-sign recognition technology. Intelligent Speed Assist kicks in when new road signs are recognised, and the car’s speed is automatically adjusted as a result.
