The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Ford Edge cuts through the crossover clutter with a 30-mpg turbo model, MyFord Touch's step-ahead connectivity, and exceptional interior room. The 2013 Nissan Murano trades away some utility and space-efficiency in the name of style and refinement. No matter which facet or dimension you measure--except excitement--the 2013 Toyota Highlander offers competent performance, great space, and good value.
