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 2009 Nissan Murano combines good handling and a recognizable style with a much more sophisticated interior. The 2009 Toyota Venza adds another flavor to the crossover melting pot, but it's a mild one.
