Ford Edge infographic

From launch there were three trim levels to choose from: Zetec, Titanium and Sport.

Towards the end of 2016 the luxurious Vignale specification was introduced, while the following year ST-Line replaced Sport. Ford discontinued Zetec versions of the Edge in early 2018.

  • Front foglights
  • LED rear lamps
  • Automatic headlights and wipers
  • Front and rear parking sensors, plus a reversing camera

Opt for the Edge ST-Line and additionally you'll net:

  • 20-inch grey alloy wheels
  • Body-coloured bodykit
  • Sports suspension
  • Gloss black exterior detailing
  • 12-speaker Sony speaker system
  • Faux suede upholstery
  • Electrically adjustable front seats

Topping the range is the plushly trimmed Edge Vignale:

  • Additional chrome detailing with Vignale-specific grille and bumper
  • Adaptive LED headlamps
  • Luxury perforated leather upholstery
  • Enhanced ambient lighting
  • Illuminated kick plates

Optional Ford Edge SUV extras

There are a number of individual options that can be specified to tailor the Edge to your specific tastes and needs, including metallic paint, LED headlamps, upgraded audio systems, heated rear seats and a panoramic glass roof to highlight but a few.

Titanium buyers can specify a Lux Pack that includes full leather upholstery, electrically adjustable front seats with heating and cooling, heated rear seats, the panoramic roof and electrically folding door mirrors.

There's a similar ST-Line Lux Pack that costs less becuase it's building upon a higher level of standard equipment, hence it doesn't include the cost of the electric front seats, nor is the upholstery upgraded to full leather.

Safety

4.5 out of 5 4.5
  • Five-star crash test rating from Euro NCAP
  • Lots of standard safety kit scross the range
  • Adaptive LED headlamps are worth the extra cost

Ford Edge infographic

Ford designed the Edge to perform well in the more stringent Euro NCAP crash tests introduced in 2016 - it was a strategy that worked with a five-star score achieved that year.

Standard Ford Edge safety equipment

All Edges have a multimedia sustem that features voice-recognition software allowing the driver to keep their eyes on the road while using the Ford's many features. For example, simply tell the car what to find via the sat-nav (where fitted) and it’ll do the rest. It's that easy.

You also get a rear-view camera, keyless ignition, a low-speed automatic braking system, dark-tinted rear windows to keep the rear occupants out of view, automatic headlights and wipers, a quick-defrosting function for the windscreen, a system to keep you in your lane unless you indicate and traffic sign recognition, which displays the speed limit and any other relevant road signs.

Parking sensors and a reversing camera are also standard on Titanium models upwards.

Optional Ford Edge safety systems

Two of the most compelling safety features available for extra cash are adaptive headlights (which turn when you steer, allowing you to see better when cornering) and inflatable rear seatbelt airbags for added peace of mind for your all-important back-seat passengers.

You’ve got the option of an automatic parking system too, and adaptive cruise control that’ll match the car’s speed to the vehicle in front up to a pre-set limit.

How many Isofix points does the Ford Edge have?

Both of the Edge's outer rear seats have Isofix childseat-mounting brackets for attaching the restraints conveniently and quickly.

Euro NCAP Rating – 5 stars

The Ford Edge was tested by Euro NCAP in 5 and was awarded a 5 star overall rating. This overall rating is calculated from the following individual ratings:

5 star rating
Test 5
Individual safety ratings
Adult Occupant: 85%
Child Occupant: 76%
Pedestrian: 67%
Safety Assist: 89%

Euro NCAP provides motoring consumers with a realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe. The safety ratings are determined from a series of vehicle tests, designed and carried out by Euro NCAP. These tests represent, in a simplified way, important real life accident scenarios that could result in injured or killed car occupants or other road users.

Interior & boot space

3.7 out of 5 3.7
  • Five adults should be able to get comfy
  • Useful amounts of storage room
  • Massive cupholders also feature

Compared with the Mondeo it shares its platform with, the Ford Edge feel significantly more spacious for families - five adults are unlikely to find difficulty getting comfortable on a long journey.

There's ample space for odds and ends to be hidden away, plus the cupholders up front are very deep, confirming its North American hertiage where beverage buckets frequent car interiors.


Ford Edge infographic

Despite it's bold, imposing appearance, the Edge takes up a similar amount of space on the road as a Ford Mondeo, so finding somewhere to park it shouldn't prove too challenging.

Visibility all-round is fine, too, so it never feels daunting to pilot.


Ford Edge infographic

Pop open the tailgate and you'll have a useful 602 litres of space, increasing to 1,847 when the rear seats are folded over.

They split 60:40 and drop with the convenience of a button just insisde the boot.

Many Edges are fitted with electric tailgates for added convenience. It's slow and steady in operation, accompanied by a series of beeps to confirm it's operating.
