TCC’s Bottom Line
Provided you don't need a third-row seat, the 2011 Ford Edge is at last, at the leading edge of mid-size crossovers, with one of the best driver interfaces in the business. The 2011 Mazda CX-9 can carry seven in comfort, but it loves curves more than almost any other roomy crossover. You won’t find much excitement or flair in the 2011 Toyota Venza, but it makes a lot of sense as an alternative to either a large sedan or a mid-size SUV.
