TOPPING Ford’s SUV range is the Edge, although while its dimensions suggest it’s a seven-seater, it has room for only five people. However, all five seats are spacious and the cabin is more like an MPV’S than an SUV’S.
To that end, it has the same dash layout as the S-MAX and Galaxy people carriers, while the tech on board matches them, too.
All versions come with permanent 4WD, although there are no selectable drive modes.
