The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.6
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. The 2009 Nissan Murano combines good handling and a recognizable style with a much more sophisticated interior.
