The 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid receives no significant changes.The 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid comes with a good amount of standard equipment in the base LE trim. But we recommend upgrading to the midlevel XLE. On top of the standard systems such as forward collision mitigation and lane departure intervention, the XLE gets blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert as well as the upgraded 8.1-inch touchscreen.

PROS
Impressive fuel economy for a three-row crossover
Just-right size for many families
Added peace of mind from standard accident-avoidance tech
Quiet and compliant ride

CONS
Touchscreen and other controls may require an extra-long reach
Third-row seat isn't as roomy as those of many competitors

The 2018 Ford Edge has an eager feel and crisp design; safety scores and Sport ride quality give pause.The Edge satisfies more than a few needs. It’s sleeker than the truck-infused Expedition, even the Explorer. It’s more spacious than the Escape. It’s also devoid of any off-road pretense, any faux-SUV ruggedness.

Pros
Quick steering
Cabin’s muted details
Wide range of engines
Composed ride on small-tire models
Edge Sport lives up to name

Cons
Seats are a big letdown
Real-world fuel economy
Stiff Sport ride

The 2018 Ford Edge ranked #9 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Ford Edge has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 28 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
User-friendly infotainment system
Spacious, comfortable, quiet cabin
Above-average fuel economy with standard engine
Smooth, carlike handling

Cons
Transmission can be slow to shif

If all you need is a basic crossover without having to worry about a bunch of pricey options, the SE is your best bet. But for most Edge shoppers, we think the SEL is the way to go. It offers more amenities and access to options

Pros
Ride quality is smoother than many of its competitors
Plenty of space for passengers and luggage
Fuel-efficient and performance-oriented engines

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