The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Provided you don’t mind the lack of a third-row seat, the 2009 Ford Edge stands out in a crowded field as thoroughly competent, well rounded, and fashionable. Hyundai’s most expensive model may not quite be a Lexus, but it’s impressive in its own right.
