TCC’s Bottom Line
An exceptionally comfortable interior, great connectivity, and a 30-mpg turbo model succeed in elevating the 2014 Ford Edge above the crossover clutter. The 2014 Nissan Murano is stylish and refined, but lacks some of the space and efficiency found in competitors. The 2014 Toyota Highlander covers familiar territory, without straying too far into Adventure Land.
