The Ford Edge is a four-door, five-passenger “compact” SUV that never suffers from a lack of interior space and comfort, despite its vehicle class.

The Edge features an excellent sound system (with MP3 player, auxiliary port for smart phones and portable music, USB port), entertainment center (including DVD player), and voice navigation system, giving it a big boost into the Digital Age.

In terms of performance and safety, the Ford Edge is very easy to handle and comes equipped with ABS and Driveline traction control, Advancetrac with roll stability control, an airbag occupancy sensor and a safety canopy system that curtains the first and second rows with air bags.

#3 Ford Escape

Escape 1

The Ford Escape feature a four-cylinder engine, which is pretty decent as far as compact SUV performance goes, but it also comes with optional EcoBoost engine choices. The engine can be upgraded to a 2.0-liter or 1.6-liter EcoBoost system that’ll give the vehicle a surge in power and fuel economy.

One of the reasons so many people seem to enjoy driving in the Ford Escape is because it and the Ford Focus share the same platform. This commonality in design gives the Escape’s drivers and passengers a nimble and comfy ride.

MSRP: $27,300
