There's nothing quite like that feeling of freedom that you get when you're soaring down the highway in a sports car — the smell of the asphalt, the sensation of the breeze, the sharp and accurate movements of your hands gripping the wheel.
It's really too bad that most modern families are forced to opt for something a little more practical. They need something with a large cargo area, good gas mileage, and high safety ratings.
What if there was a way for you to have both the sensation of a sports car and the practicality of a family friendly vehicle?
Take a look at a used 2015 Ford Edge Sport. This vehicle resonates with both families and sports car enthusiasts. That’s because the Sport model takes many of its design cues from the Ford Mustang. The sharp curves, the low-profile headlights, and the stiff body structure are all reminiscent of Ford’s most popular sports car. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
The Edge Sport comes with standard all-wheel drive and a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V-6. This performance-oriented powertrain reaches 315 horsepower and 350 ft-lbs. of torque. It’s rapid acceleration and tight suspension gives the Edge exceptional control, allowing you to make precise movements on the road.
What makes the Edge Sport so unique; however, is that it also caters to the growing family. With 73.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down or 39.2 cubic feet with the seats up, the Edge’s cargo capacity is both large and versatile.
18/26 mpg city/highway is certainly not the most efficient gas mileage available in the CUV class, but for a vehicle with the power of the Edge Sport, it's clearly a cut above the competition.
The Edge Sport also comes loaded with optional safety features such as a rearview camera system, a 180-degree front camera system with washer, adaptive cruise control, a BLIS blind-spot system with cross-traffic alert, collision warning with brake support, and Ford's lane-keeping system. With an emphasis on safety in the design, it's easy to see why independent car reviewers from The Car Connection give the Edge a 9 out of 10 safety rating.
