Compact crossover suvs are incredibly sensible vehicles. The best ones are spacious, comfortable, and fuel-efficient, yet also affordable to buy. That’s why so many brands’ best-sellers are their compact crossovers.
But sometimes, you want a more luxurious experience than a compact crossover can offer. Stepping up to a mid-size crossover doesn’t always get you a roomier interior than a space-efficient compact, but it tends to buy more comfortable seats, a quieter ride, and more powerful engines. Most models also add a third-row seat, too, which is handy for big families. But if you want the high-end refinement of a mid-size crossover without the extra bulk of a three-row model, one of the most popular options is the 2020 Ford Edge. This is a well-rounded vehicle that’s more elegant than the less expensive, better-selling compact Ford Escape. But at a base price of $31,100, is it worth it? Let’s go over the details.
