The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.6
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. Although it might be sold alongside pedestrian Jettas, the Volkswagen Touareg looks and feels nearly like a full-on luxury SUV at a (slightly) cut-rate price.
