Wife, 7 week old son, & I enjoy our little road-trips in the Edge. Cruising 70 to 75 mph isn't a problem courtesy of the 6 speed auto transmission. Solid build quality gives the feeling you're in a safe/well built crossover. Front-wheel drive is all that's needed (live in snowy WI). Very nice all around vehicle!
Ample amounts of power under your right foot when needed. Spacious cabin for those seated. Comfortable ride. Respectable fuel economy (22/23 hwy at 75 mph).
Cargo area in back could use some more space, but then again it's not a mini- van, nor a truck. Turbo-diesel option would be very nice.
