The interior of the 2010 Ford Edge is spacious, comfortable, and accommodating, though again here when reviewers take a closer look at the details, some are slightly disappointed.

Unlike some vehicles this size, in which you'll often find a small, tight third row of seats, the 2010 Ford Edge has just two rows of seating, good for a total of five. Cars.com reports that the Edge is "easy to get in and out [of] without climbing" thanks to its "car-based design." After easing through the doors, occupants will find themselves inside a "roomy interior with ample space for five," notes Car and Driver. ConsumerGuide raves about the layout of the front seats, stating that "legroom is ample" and "even with the Vista Roof, six-footers will have sufficient headroom" while enjoying the "all-day comfortable" front seats. Kelley Blue Book observes that the Ford Edge has "an especially roomy back seat with reclining seatbacks and a center console big enough to swallow a laptop or purse," and ConsumerGuide adds that "the rear bench is supportive and offers generous legroom, knee clearance, and foot space."

Passenger space isn't the Edge's only strength; it also has quite generous cargo space and good versatility for larger loads. ConsumerGuide says that the Ford Edge "has generous cargo space, even with the rear seatbacks raised." Car and Driver finds that "cargo room behind the rear seats [is] 32 cubic feet, 70 cubes with the rear seatbacks folded." Cars.com notes that "for 2009, Ford has added passenger grab handles and a cargo management system for better cargo and passenger flexibility," while also mentioning that the Ford Edge features a "generously sized center console storage bin."

The cabin of the 2010 Ford Edge is a surprisingly refined place, with a few exceptions. Cars.com says it's "noticeably quiet" at highway speeds but adds that "engine sound penetrates when it's working its hardest." ConsumerGuide calls it "gruff in full-throttle acceleration," yet both reviewers are impressed with how composed the engine is when cruising.

Taking a closer look at details inside the cabin, several reviewers find faults and areas for improvement, subpar materials being the most frequent complaints. Edmunds reports that "many of the interior materials are of low quality." ConsumerGuide points out that "hard plastic trim dominates Edge's cabin, but most pieces don't look cheap." On the positive side, Road & Track reviewers appreciate the "thicker, leather-wrapped steering wheel with white stitching," and "pleasing fuzzy cloth insert" in the seats, which add a small dose of upscale ambiance.

Conclusion

A long road trip in the 2009 Ford Edge shouldn't be a problem, thanks to its above-average cargo capacity and very comfortable seats.

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.
