TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Ford Edge skips third-row seats for better road manners, but it could stand a round of comfort and safety upgrades. As a style-conscious statement of indulgence, the Lexus RX shines like never before. Its looks are polarizing and it's not all that fun to drive even in F Sport form, but the RX continues to excel in many ways. The 2017 Nissan Murano is smooth and polished—and that may be just the ticket for buyers who want a high seating position and the availability of all-wheel drive.
