I agree with Marc that Ford should have done something a little bit different with the Edge instead of producing another middle-of-the-road crossover, of which they have several in their very own stable. In its defense, the Edge - with its rounded, pill-bug shape - does at least stand out among the multitude of crossovers on the market. Although, the Lincoln MKX definitely got the looks in this pair and it has aged better also.
The interior plastics are fine but the striped, silver-colored material on the central dash seems out of place, like an afterthought. The controls are neatly arranged and easy to find. The seat bottoms are bit hard and flat but the suede-blue inserts soften them up, if only a little. Like Amy, when I first noticed the blind-spot mirrors mounted to the side mirrors, I thought "aftermarket." But the first time I needed to change lanes on a busy road or reverse into a parking spot in a crowded lot, I was hooked. They would be a nice addition on any mid-size or large vehicle
