Does the Ford Edge have fleet appeal or is it a fleeting fancy, asks Al Suttie?

1 - I'll come to fleet appeal in a moment, but for kerb appeal the Ford Edge has it in spades. Loads of people complimented its looks.

2 - Those big, bold lines translate into a cabin with oodles of room for kit and caboodle, and it's limo-like with rear legroom.

3 - It's mighty fine up front too, thanks to electrically adjusted and heated leather seats that are part of the £2000 Lux Pack.


4 - Our test car also came with optional adaptive cruise control, park assist, upgraded stereo, LED headlights and metallic paint.

5 - Fortunately, it didn't have the 20-inch wheel option, sticking with the standard 19s instead.

6 - The smaller wheels equate to a smoochily cosseting ride, as well as better economy of 48.7mpg and 149g/km CO2 outpu


7 - Those figure won't trouble the class best, but with are acceptable with this car's 210hp 2.0-litre turbodiesel, all-wheel drive and dual-clutch auto 'box.

8 - It all adds up to a very refined, comfortable and capable cruiser, perfect for pounding motorways or towing up to 2200kg.

9 - The Edge is also up to Ford's usual standards on twistier roads, where its size is not an issue for handling or nimbleness.

10 - Far more than the Mondeo Vignale, the Edge Titanium feels like a proper range-topper for Ford, so it earns its place in the company car park.
