You don't have to buy a three-row crossover just to get a roomy interior. Take the 2017 Ford Edge, for instance. It'll fit your family of five with room to spare and still fit into your garage with ease. It also boasts the latest technology, a smooth ride and a wide range of engines.
The 2017 Ford Edge is essentially unchanged from last year.

Pros
Ride quality is smoother than many of its competitors
Plenty of space for passengers and luggage
Fuel-efficient and performance-oriented engines
Many available tech and luxury features.

Cons
Base engine may be too sluggish for some drivers
Transmission is occasionally slow to react.

The 2017 Ford Edge skips third-row seats for better road manners, but it could stand a round of comfort and safety upgrades.
Middle children don't always have it so rough. The Ford Edge was nothing a decade ago--it literally didn't exist until 2007. In just 10 years, it's become one of Ford's big hits, splitting the crossover lineup down the middle and giving well-heeled shoppers a way to spend almost fifty grand on a Ford that doesn't have a payload rating.

Pros
Precise steering
Focused Sport model
Nicely detailed cabin
Improved EcoBoost engine lineup

Cons
No third-row seat
Flat seat cushions
Real-world mpg concerns

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2017 Ford Edge ranks 6 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Ford Edge ranks near the top of our midsize SUV class because it has ample cabin room, high safety scores, and multiple powertrains that enable you to choose the model that best meets your needs.

Pros
Sedanlike ride and handling
Fuel-efficient base engine
Strong engine lineup

Cons
Some hard plastics detract from cabin appearance
