The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Provided you don't need a third-row seat, the 2011 Ford Edge is at last, at the leading edge of mid-size crossovers, with one of the best driver interfaces in the business. The 2011 Mazda CX-9 can carry seven in comfort, but it loves curves more than almost any other roomy crossover.
