The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you don't require a third-row seat, the 2008 Ford Edge is a fashionable, satisfying alternative in the crowded pack of mid-size crossovers. The 2009 Nissan Murano combines good handling and a recognizable style with a much more sophisticated interior.
