TCC’s Bottom Line
Provided you don’t need third-row seating or a luxury badge, the 2015 Ford Edge offers everything you might want in a comfortable, stylish, tech-savvy crossover. The 2015 Mercedes GLA isn't the roomiest small crossover, but it's a stylish vehicle with a double shot of urban attitude--and a dash of ruggedness--that looks fully up to Mercedes-Benz luxury standards.
