The Ford Edge offers plenty more on top of this, for example, the noise-cancelling software, which uses microphones dotted around the cabin to sample the engines thrum before producing opposing sound waves, played through the cabin's speakers to make the engine sound smoother. And there's the optional active steering, which uses an electric motor in the steering wheel hub to add or reduce the lock that you apply through the column. It makes the steering more direct at parking speeds but less twitchy on the motorway. Clever stuff indeed.
All versions get four-wheel drive and use a 2.0-litre diesel engine, which is offered in two states of tune: 177bhp from a single-turbo unit coupled to a six-speed manual gearbox, or a twin-turbo version with 207bhp and a dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
The Ford Edge is decent for daily use. The suspension is quiet and very comfortable making for a very smooth journey. There is plenty of space on the comfortable front seats, while in the rear there's plenty of leg room and space and a huge boot.
The Ford Edge is incredibly quiet and refined. It's an excellent ride and handles well in busy streets and on the motorway. It comes with a huge boot and plenty of rear passenger room and is every well equipped and good value for money.
