2013 Ford Edge Interior
The five-seat 2013 Ford Edge comes standard with features that are typical for the class, and reviewers appreciate its high-quality materials, attractive design and comfortable seats. Testers note that its cabin is quiet, and one even compares it with the Edge’s luxury-label twin, the Lincoln MKX. Reviewers say the optional MyFord Touch touch-screen infotainment system continues to be plagued with bugs and can be confusing to learn.
- "The 2013 Ford Edge features a modern-looking interior, especially on models equipped with MyFord Touch.” -- Edmunds
- "The 2013 Ford Edge is not considered a luxury car like its twin, the Lincoln MKX, but step inside the Ford and you might forget you're in the blue collar version.” -- Kelley Blue Book
The Ford Edge can seat five, and test drivers say that in general, most seats are comfortable. Reviewers appreciate the fact that the second row reclines, and in more expensive trims, shoppers can opt for leather upholstery. One tester notes that the middle seat in the rear can be uncomfortable, and that choosing the available moonroof can cut down on head space. However, these complaints are common to many five-seat crossovers.
- "Front and back, passenger space is abundant and comfortable.” -- Kelley Blue Book
- "The Edge's front seats provide excellent support on longer trips. In back, the reclining outboard seats are nicely shaped and offer satisfactory legroom, but headroom can be tight if you order the dual-pane ‘Vista Roof’ option. Furthermore, the middle seat is for short trips only due to its slablike seatback.” -- Edmunds
The base 2013 Ford Edge comes equipped with manual air conditioning, eight cup- or bottle holders, a manually-adjustable tilt and telescoping steering wheel and a six-speaker stereo with audio input jack. Standard features on the top-of-the-line Sport trim include dual-zone automatic climate control, Sync and MyFord Touch voice- and touch-screen controls, a rearview camera and an upgraded Sony audio system with HD radio. Optional features include a panoramic moonroof, adaptive cruise control with collision warning and navigation.
Reviewers don’t say much about most of the 2013 Edge’s features, but some are quick to note that its optional MyFord Touch system is confusing. The touch-screen controls can be unresponsive and hard to master, and even though the automaker has announced some software updates, reviewers say it can still be complicated and difficult to use. They don’t say much about the Edge’s other features, but in past years, they’ve praised the base Edge’s knob-and-switch controls for being logically laid-out and easy to use.
- "The 2013 Ford Edge does have a couple downsides, the most notable being the aforementioned MyFord Touch electronics interface that's drawn criticism from consumers and our editors alike for being difficult to figure out and frustrating to use.” -- Edmunds
- "Learning this technology takes time, and models fitted with the large touch-screen panel can prove frustrating when all you want to do is something as simple as adjusting the climate.” -- Kelley Blue Book
- “Me, I gave up (on the navigation system) and used my iPhone to find the bridge coming back from an unfamiliar neighborhood on Long Island one day.” -- New York Daily News
The 2013 Ford Edge has 32.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row of seats and 68.9 cubic feet of cargo space with the back row folded. Testers say that the cargo space is good for an SUV of the Edge’s size, but one notes that the Edge’s rear liftgate might be hard to reach if you’re short.
- "Behind the seats, cargo room is good.” -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Without the power liftgate, the Edge's rear hatch can be hard for shorter drivers to close.” -- Edmunds
