Safety is typically a top priority for family shoppers, and a number of indicators point to the 2010 Ford Edge as one of the safest choices.

The Ford Edge racks up top five-star ratings from the federal government, except for a four-star front passenger impact score. In IIHS tests, the Edge also earns top "good" ratings, along with the organization's Top Safety Pick designation.

Cars.com declares that the "Edge's crashworthiness is top-notch." According to Car and Driver, the 2010 Ford Edge features "a panoply of safety equipment" that includes "front, front side, and curtain airbags." Ford notes that the Edge features "the latest version of SYNC which adds 911 Assist—with no monthly fees." Cars.com reports that additional safety features include "standard electronic stability system with rollover mitigation" and "standard blind spot mirror."

Visibility is often an issue in crossover vehicles, which tend to be tall, with high beltlines and rear pillars that amplify typical blind spots. Cars.com finds that "visibility is pretty good to the rear," but for those pesky blind spots, they note that the Ford Edge offers a "standard blind spot mirror" and available "reverse sensing sonar" on SEL, Limited, and Sport models. ConsumerGuide says that the "low dashboard and chair-height seats provide good overall visibility."

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.
