Solid but not outstanding, the Edge offers little advantage over its stiff competition.
The best view out of the Edge is to the sides, as the front’s high cowl and rear’s small window and thick pillars conspire to obscure your forward and rear vision. Those thick rear pillars leave only a little room for glass. What little view there is to the rear is blocked by the second-row head restraints, and if the folks back there are watching a movie on the flip-down DVD screen, kiss your rear view goodbye. At least the side view is good, with large mirrors. If you prefer a backup camera, you’re out of luck; none is available, just the sensors on our test car.
