The Ford Edge is a five-seat SUV that is big on equipment, comfort and refinement.

It comes with an impressive suite of safety measures, including stability control, lane departure warning, inflatable rear seatbelts to reduce bruising in the event of an impact, plus a collision mitigation system that warns of an impending low-speed impact and slows or stops the car if the driver takes no action.

There’s also a 180-degree ‘Split View’ camera that helps you spot oncoming traffic when pulling out of tight junctions.

It may not be the most engaging Ford we have driven in recent years, but it’s a rational and good value option.
