Latest SUV on the market: 2016 Ford Edge

Author: Select Car Leasing News     Date: 10-08-2016

The Ford Edge is the newest vehicle to arrive from the historic manufacturer and will act as the flagship SUV over the next few years. The Edge is the largest SUV available from Ford, bigger than both the Kuga & Ecosport, and one of the largest vehicles of its kind on the market. The Edge hopes to take on not just a specific segment of the market, but steer the entire SUV customer base towards Ford instead of vehicles such as the Honda CR-V, Discovery Sport & Hyundai Sante Fe.

So how good is the Edge?

 

ENGINES

There isn't a huge selection of engines currently on offer but the 2.0-litre diesel should provide enough to most motorists & its likely that Ford will improve this range in due course anyway. While its stats aren't quite as good as the 2.0-litre twin turbo which goes from 0-62mph in 9.4 seconds and gives you 207bhp, this engine still serves up 178bhp and a 0-62mph time of just 9.9 seconds which is a pretty solid set of figures when you consider the Edge is certainly one of the bulkiest cars on the road. 

That 2.0-litre twin-turbo still has decent enough stats when it comes to economy; providing around 152g/km in CO2 emissions and an mpg of 47.9mpg. Those figures aren't really lowered drastically by the other diesel engine which will emit 149g/km of CO2 and give you 48.7mpg.

INTERIOR & TECHNOLOGY

Soft-touch materials have been used to give the Edge a highly practical & comfortable interior design. The centre console takes cues from other vehicles in the range & is very distinctly Ford. In terms of technology, you have the option of a 8" SYNC 2 touchscreen which comes as standard and offers a clear,crisp picture as well as all the usual infotainment system benefits.

 

With the Ford Edge's large exterior looks it shouldn't come as a surprise that the interior has been commended for its space & practicality. The boot is one of the largest in the market at a strong 602-litres and this can be increased to an unrivalled 1,847-litres if you fold down the rear seats. 

SAFETY

The further up the trim level you the more kit you will get, and the Titanium Zetec models demonstrate this with luxury additions such as chrome roof rails, electric bootlids & plenty of other options to spec out your Edge. However, there is also plenty of useful safety technology available including adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, speed assist & road sign recognition as well much more.

The Ford Edge has only been available for a limited time so its difficult to asses the impact the newest SUV will have on the market, time will tell whether this is likely to join a number of other Ford vehicles as some of the most popular on UK roads.
