The 2011 Ford Edge doesn't have a third-row seat as do many other vehicles its size, but that pays dividends in passenger space for five.

Expert Quotes:

The second row is spacious and if you need even more, the 60/40 split rear seats fold down at the touch of a button.
Detroit News

Overall, the look and feel of the interior are more premium
Edmunds' Inside Line

The seats are comfortable and flexible, but some details leave us scratching our heads
Kelley Blue Book

everything one touches and sees has been completely redesigned and brought up to Ford’s new standards

The SEL feels cushy and compliant without wallowing.

Although the 2011 Ford Edge has mid-size exterior dimensions, Ford has smartly opted to fit just two rows of seating into this tall wagon—meaning that there's plenty of space for all.

The front seats are nicely upholstered and comfortable, although we're baffled by Ford's inconsistent power seat controls: fully powered for the driver, but a power lower cushion with a manual recline lever for the front passenger.

Ford claims that the 2011 Edge has best-in-class legroom in the second row, and we're not inclined to doubt them. The rear seats now recline, and we fit four six-foot adults into the Edge without complaint.

Ride quality is on the firm side, but absorbent enough; and while the Edge Sport had a bit more road noise and a more active ride, we were surprised that it wasn't rougher still.

Build quality was very good considering that at the time of this review, we've only driven pre-production vehicles. We heard no interior creaks or other noises, and the noise suppression is good on the base car. The Edge Sport, as noted, produces more tire noise, an inevitable price to pay for its huge, very low-profile tires.

Conclusion

The 2011 Ford Edge doesn't have a third-row seat as do many other vehicles its size, but that pays dividends in passenger space for five.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
