The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Provided you don’t mind the lack of a third-row seat, the 2009 Ford Edge stands out in a crowded field as thoroughly competent, well rounded, and fashionable. The 2008 Mazda CX-9 may be the best-driving full-size seven-passenger crossover out there. It is certainly one of the best looking and appointed.
