The Ford Edge - now available in Europe
More than 60,000 Ford Edge vehicles have been configured online in the past four months, as right-hand-drive models roll off the production line for the first time and into dealerships this summer.
The flagship Sport model is the most popular choice, making up almost half of the configurations, with the most popular colours, perhaps unsurprisingly, being Oxford White (16 per cent), Shadow Black (14 per cent) and Electric Spice (8 per cent).
Available in Zetec, Titanium and Sport series – the all-new Edge is well-equipped as standard, offering Ford intelligent all-wheel drive, Active Noise Control, Pedestrian Detection, Ford DAB Audio with SYNC connectivity, privacy glass and 19inch alloy wheels.
Technological features are key to the design of the Edge. Adaptive Steering, which automatically optimises the steering response according to vehicle speed comes as standard, while the Front Wide View Camera, makes restricted visibility junctions or parking spaces easier to negotiate.
Andy Barratt, chairman and managing director, Ford of Britain, said: “The UK team and our extensive Ford dealer network are very excited by this exceptionally fast start for the new Ford Edge. With our existing EcoSport and Kuga SUV models enjoying healthy sales growth, there isn’t a better time to launch our new flagship Edge SUV.”
And the reviews so far have been encouraging. Auto Express has said that the Edge “looks the part and is packed with kit” while Car and Driver awards the off-roader an impressive 4.5 out of 5 stars.
