After owning a 2010 RAV4 for the last 3 years. We decided that we couldn't take it any more. While capable the RAV 4 Sport was not a very comfortable or rewarding car. Fast forward to the Ford Edge. This car is quite nice. Quite, powerful, and comfortable. Was pleasantly surprised by the engine note from the base V6 and while its not an eco buster, MPGs are above average for a heavy SUV and now that it's broken in a bit we are seeing an improvement. The Sync system is a little clunky and the worst characteristic is it's in ability to keep accurate time. Not sure if it's a bug, but never the less and bizarre fault. Should have opted for the panoramic sun roof.
Cabin comfort, look and feel
Decent road manners
Powerful V6 and sport mode
White Platinum Tri-coat paint
Nice sound system
Sync still needs improvement.
This may be small but the exterior door handle mechanism, while slick, feels cheap.
Rear Tail gate lift height is low. I'm 6'1" and have whacked my head a couple of time since taking ownership.
