A tranquil interior, lots of technology and strong engines make the Ford Edge great for both business and personal drivers. The Edge is designed to be athletic and distinctive, so its eye-catching lines are like nothing else on the road. It’s a luxurious SUV without the price tag usually associated, so you can enjoy the pure refinement for less than you might have expected.
The grille is large and bold, matching the rest of the styling. Coupled with the alloy wheels, LED headlights and wraparound rear lights, the Edge is assertive and offers strong road presence. Although seven seats could be squeezed into the car, Ford has instead chosen to offer five seats which are incredibly spacious and elegant. Inside, there are a number of features to enjoy on your journeys, including a 10-inch infotainment system with a responsive touchscreen display. The interior is trimmed with leather that has undergone a rigorous selection process, upholding the air of elegance that comes as standard.
If you are yearning for an even more dynamic option, the ST-Line model adds larger alloy wheels, a lovely body kit and twin exhausts. It adds an air of sportiness and aggression to the Edge’s smart appearance.
Whichever Edge model you choose, you won’t be short-changed in terms of advanced technology. Even on the entry-level Titanium specification, you’ll enjoy automatic headlights with high beam assist, a rear-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, heated front seats, automatic emergency braking and the SYNC 3 colour touchscreen infotainment system. You can also get adaptive steering, active noise cancellation and a wide-view front camera, which makes negotiating difficult junctions much easier. For ultimate convenience, choose the hands-free tailgate, adaptive cruise control and lane keeping aid.
The Edge retains Ford’s trademark brilliant driving experience, thanks to independent rear suspension that ensures every trip is engaging and dynamic. All models come with four-wheel-drive to provide security and ability in all conditions, and Ford has even selected tyres that reduce road noise for maximum tranquillity. There are two 2.0-litre turbo diesel engines available with either 178hp or 207hp and the choice of a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox.
Ford offers its flagship crossover in its exclusive Vignale spec, which adds further features on top of those fitted to Titanium and ST-Line models. Polished 20-inch alloy wheels, chrome detailing, LED fog lights, premium paint and Vignale badges are among the exterior changes, whilst the interior gets bespoke diamond-stitch heated leather seats, ambient lighting and many premium-feeling materials. Adaptive lighting with glare-free high beam means you can enjoy enhanced visibility in the dark without blinding other drivers.
