The new 2015 Ford Edge joins the ranks of the Ford Explorer and Flex crossovers in offering supportive front seats, long bolstering and plenty of legroom for drivers who need it.
Getting in and out of the Escalade is a little more involved for most drivers, but taller guys won’t have issue with it and the seats themselves feel positioned just right for longer legs and a fuller build. What’s so remarkable about the Escalade was how we observed drivers who were much shorter than average also get very comfortable in the Escalade.
I can’t fully explain what makes these seats so great, but they are. Nissan calls them Zero Gravity seats, and their plush cushioning and long cushions seem to soak up any concerns that there aren’t extendable thigh bolsters or that legroom might not be class-leading.
We can understand why you might be surprised to see the Encore make this list. And yes, the front-seat cushions in it are small-car short. But we had to throw the Encore into this bunch for the way that it somehow packs usable, comfortable space for those well over six feet tall into a vehicle that’s barely 14 feet long.
