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.

It's a mid-sizer by its exterior measurements, but Ford has skipped a third-row seat in the 2012 Edge, leaving that extreme duty to its Flex and Explorer crossovers. The Edge has just two rows of seating in its tall wagon body, and that translates into plenty of space for all passengers.

In front, a pair of bucket seats comes with at least some power control. On base models, the driver seat is fully powered--but the passenger seat only has a power base, with a manual rake lever to recline. Higher trim levels offer 10-way power-adjustable seats, nicely trimmed and comfortable, with lots of head and leg room surrounding them.

The back seat is also adult-sized, and adult-shaped. Ford says the Edge has best-in-class second-row leg room, and it's tough to cast doubt on that suggestion, given the inches of spare room we've seen with four adults on board--and space for a child left on the rear seat. The rear seat backrests also recline to an excellent position for long-distance comfort.

The back seat also folds down to boost the Edge's cargo hold from 32.2 cubic feet to more than 68 cubic feet. You'll bankrupt yourself at Costco before you exhaust the Edge's two-seat cargo capacity.

Ford's also molded in some handy storage throughout the Edge. Bottle holders can be found in all doors, and there are all kinds of pockets, trays and bins in the cabin, as well as a tray ahead of the shifter for media players.

Ford's interior materials have gone drastically upscale since the Edge first was introduced in 2005. It's now on par with the pricey Flex, and it's only the tire noise on models with 22-inch wheels that disturbs the Edge's high-quality, highly comfortable cockpit.

Conclusion

Without a third-row seat, the 2012 Ford Edge focuses on great passenger room for five adults.

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.
