2019 Ford Edge Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.1

The 2019 Ford Edge has a comfortable interior. The cabin is quiet, with sufficient insulation to keep out wind and road noise. Material quality receives mixed reviews, with some reviewers finding the interior full of premium materials and others saying there are too many cheap plastics for a vehicle in this price range. Cargo space is decent, especially since many in the class are 3-row SUVs. Adults can sit comfortably in both rows. While the SYNC 3 infotainment system is generally easy to use, it feels a little outdated compared to some rivals.

  • The interior is comfortable and usable but not particularly pretty. There's minimal use of color or texture, even in the high-level Titanium trim. And while the fit and finish is solid, it's done with a lot of plain plastic. We know from the F-150 and the new Mustang that Ford is capable of more stylish interiors, so the looks of the Edge's cabin are a bit disappointing, especially when compared to other vehicles in the same price range." -- Edmunds
  • "High-quality materials are used throughout, with the majority of the dash and door panels constructed of soft-touch surfaces, while some stitched panels and chrome and gloss black trim offer nice contrast." -- CNET

Seating

This 2-row SUV seats five people on standard cloth upholstery. Upgraded cloth upholstery, leather seats, heated and ventilated front and rear seats, and 10-way power-adjustable front seats are available, as is a leather-wrapped, heated steering wheel.

The cabin is spacious in both front and back, with ample head- and legroom in both rows. Even moonroof-equipped models have enough headroom for 6-foot adults. The seats are wide and comfortable, and visibility is great, thanks to the large windows.

There are two sets of LATCH connectors on the rear outboard seats, as well as a middle-seat tether anchor. The middle seat can also borrow a lower anchor from each side. The setup is generally easy to use, though some of the tether anchors can be confused for other hardware.

  • "The front seats are soft, wide and comfortable. The rear seats had plenty of leg and headroom, even in models fitted with the panoramic moonroof. I could comfortably sit in the second row, behind a front seat adjusted to fit my long-legged, 6-foot-tall self." -- Autoblog
  • "The interior of the Edge is bright and airy, with big windows all the way to the rear of the vehicle and an optional panoramic sunroof. Rear passengers have plenty of legroom and headroom thanks to the long roof, which doesn't dip down till midway past the cargo area." -- Edmunds
  • "The 2-row midsize SUV layout creates a spacious interior, and the massive (optional) panorama moonroof makes the cabin feel even more airy and open. The interior is quiet -- if you hear the Edge’s engine when you’re standing outside the vehicle, then get in, you'll really appreciate the lack of sound inside. Someone sitting in the middle rear seat loses some legroom to the center console which juts out a touch, but the Edge is plenty roomy overall." -- Kelley Blue Book

Interior Features

Ford outfits the base Edge SE with proximity keyless entry, push-button start, and Ford’s MyKey, which lets you set speed and audio limits for secondary drivers. The Edge also comes with the SYNC connectivity system, which includes a USB port, Bluetooth, voice controls, satellite radio, a six-speaker stereo, a 4.2-inch display, and FordPass Connect with a Wi-Fi hot spot. The Ford Co-Pilot360 suite of safety features is also standard. It includes a pre-collision system with automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, a rearview camera, automatic high beams, and blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert.

Optional equipment includes front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, adaptive headlights, parallel park assist, dual-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic moonroof, remote start, a 110-volt power outlet, a nine-speaker premium sound system, the SYNC 3 infotainment system, a navigation system, wireless device charging, an 8-inch touch screen, a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, an additional USB port, and Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa smartphone integration.

The SYNC 3 infotainment system is responsive and pretty easy to use. However, its graphics look outdated compared to rivals, and there are a lot of small, awkwardly placed physical controls for climate and audio settings.

  • If there is a part of the Edge that could use an update, it’s the climate controls. Some of the buttons are small and hard to read. In addition, the infotainment screen is still fairly easy to use, but the touch screens offered by other manufacturers are larger, higher-resolution units with more intuitive controls." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • Ford's operating system isn't going to impress visually; the gauges and touchscreen on the Edge aren't big or stunning in appearance. But they are easy to figure out and quick to respond." -- Edmunds
  • "But the infotainment screen’s chunky graphics look dated and using it presents a steep learning curve – there are too few buttons on the center stack and too many on the steering wheel. That said, the voice recognition works pretty well." -- Automobile Magazine

Cargo

The 2019 Ford Edge has a decent amount of cargo space, offering 39.2 cubic feet behind the rear seats. Fold those down, and you open up a maximum 73.4 cubic feet of space. A hands-free liftgate is available, along with a quick-release button that folds down the rear seats.

  • "Cargo space is plentiful, … offering enough room for some serious Ikea shopping trips." -- CNET
  • "That cargo space is big and accessible." -- Edmunds
  • The cargo area is low and wide and fits in between competitors like the GMC Acadia and Chevy Blazer in terms of space." -- Autoblog
