The Edge has come a long way since its introduction more than a decade ago. What sets this mid-size tall wagon apart is its sophisticated styling, sporty suspension plus plenty of stretch-out and luggage space for five riders. For 2019 the non-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 has been dropped, leaving the turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 as the base engine. A twin-turbo V-6 remains as the sole option but it’s only available in the sporty ST edition. Each one is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle-shift controls. The available all-wheel-drive system can direct up to 100 percent of the torque to either the front or rear axles, as needed. A 3,500-pound maximum trailer rating means the Edge can work (and play) hard as well. The interior displays plenty of storage bins and cubbies plus an 8-inch touch-screen for the audio, infotainment and climate controls. The most basic of the Edge’s four trim levels has plenty of comfort content. Beyond that, the assortment of available safety and technology gear includes a 180-degree front camera that scans for unseen cross-traffic at intersections.
