TheCarConnection.com gives the 2008 Ford Edge high marks for safety.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awards this 2008 Ford four and five stars in all tests, including a five-star rating for side impacts (the most common type of injury accident). Car and Driver also reports that the "Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which is notoriously difficult to please, made the Edge a Top Pick for safety." The Edge’s IIHS rating is also noted by Cars.com, which says that the "Edge's crashworthiness is top-notch."

Car and Driver reports that the 2008 Ford Edge comes with "a panoply of safety equipment, "including a full set of airbags as well as ABS and stability control. According to Cars.com, the Ford 2008 models' "AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control...monitors body lean and intervenes if it senses an impending rollover in order to keep the vehicle's wheels on the ground." In addition to all of this, Edmunds mentions that "rear parking sensors are optional on SEL and Limited models" of this 2008 Ford.

"A low dashboard and chair-height seats provide good overall visibility" in the 2008 Ford, reports ConsumerGuide, "though the rear headrests partially block the view astern." Cars.com adds, "while visibility is pretty good to the rear, a rearview camera--an increasingly common feature worth having--is not yet offered on the Edge."

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.
