What alternatives should I consider to a used Ford Edge hatchback?
The most similar rival to the Edge is the Volkswagen Touareg, which is higher in quality, better to drive and more comfortable but shares the Edge’s big disadvantage, which is that it offers only five seats.
You’re far better off, then, spending less on a seven-seat rival like the Kia Sorento, which throws a long manufacturer warranty into the bargain and feels less cumbersome than the Edge.
There’s also the Skoda Kodiaq, which is smaller than both of those rivals and therefore more manoeuvrable but, thanks to clever packaging, offers just as much space. It’s safe, comfortable and easy to drive, too.
