I was a little hesitant to lease an American car but to my surprise the Edge exceeded my expectations. I looked at the Murano and the Pacifica among other but the Edge seemed to beat them all. The handling is great and it is fun to drive. The backseat is very spacious and there is plenty of storage room in the rear.
Fun to drive, you feel really safe. Body shape. Responsiveness of the steering. An engine that responds. Quiet ride. NAV and DVD systems.
The instrument panel lights are too dim even at their highest. The rear window is small, it limits your sight distance when looking in your rear view mirror. They could have done a better job with the interior panels, too much plastic. rear doors don't open wide enough.
