See the first official pictures of the European Ford Edge SUV and Ford Edge Sport model
The Edge is Ford's flagship SUV and the entry-level model starts at £29,995, with the range-topper coming in at £36,745. The new Ford Edge is, along with the Ford Ranger pickup truck, one of the toughest Fords you can buy. The Edge's rivals include the Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe and Honda CR-V, as well as stiff competition from the Land Rover Discovery Sport, BMW X3 and Mercedes GLC. The Edge is available with two versions of the same 2.0-litre diesel engine, each of which manage 177 or 207bhp. With the extra performance not affecting running costs, the decision on engines is likely to boil down to budget and whether you prefer a manual or automatic gearbox. The Edge can’t quite compete with the quality and driving experience of the best German competition but its stylish looks help it stand out. Even entry level Zetec cars get 19-inch alloy wheels, DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity as standard. The Edge might not be the best in its class but it makes an interesting alternative to the more usual choices. At 602 litres, the Ford Edge has one of the biggest boots of any car in its class. The Ford Edge's US roots are clear from how it drives as well as most obviously, how it looks. The ride is pretty good on the Zetec and Titanium Edge models thanks to their soft, US-style suspension. The optional panoramic sunroof will make the interior feel lighter and airier. The Edge interior features a 10-inch touchscreen display for the SYNC 3 infotainment system. All five of the seats on offer are comfortable, with rear passengers getting plenty of head, leg and shoulder room. Ford has used Active Noise Cancellation technology to ensure as little unwanted noise as possible makes its way into the car's interior.
