A few short years ago, there weren’t many options for family-friendly SUVs. Now every manufacturer has a full lineup of crossover SUVs with features and equipment galore. So, now that you have options, how do you choose? Start by comparing top-rated models such as the 2022 Ford Edge vs. Mazda CX-5. Once you compare the two, you’ll see how the Edge stands out in many areas. Stop by Harrisonburg Ford today and take an Edge out for a test drive to see for yourself.
You spend a lot of time sitting in your SUV, so comfort, function, and appearance in the cabin are essential, no matter what SUV you’re looking at. The Edge has more headroom and legroom than the CX-5, and it even has more rear-seat legroom than any other SUV in its class. The Edge also has a significantly larger cargo area with 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind both rows. The CX-5 only has 29.1 cubic feet of space behind the rear seat, so if you need to pack up for a family trip, the Edge will have the space you need to take everyone’s gear.
Shopping for a family vehicle means shopping for a safe vehicle. The Edge and the CX-5 come standard with a long list of safety systems and driver aids to help you keep your family safe. Choosing the Edge means getting Ford’s Co-Pilot360 group with a blind-spot monitor, forward emergency braking, and automatic high beam headlights. The CX-5 also has these systems, but in a 2022 Ford Edge vs. Mazda CX-5 family vehicle face-off, the Edge is more family-friendly with its MyKey system. This comes in handy for parents of new drivers who want to set limits to help keep their teens safe when they can’t be there with them. It allows them to set speed and stereo volume limits and reminds them to put on their seatbelt.
The tech features in your family vehicle can make the difference between a peaceful ride and a stressful one. With the Edge, a 12-inch touch screen comes standard, but the CX-5 comes in a close second with a 10.25-inch touch screen. Both also have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but the Edge also adds built-in Amazon Alexa, so you can do anything from your car that you can do at home.
Once you get a closer look at the Ford Edge vs. Mazda CX-5, you’ll see that the Edge is the more family-friendly option. It has more cabin space, cargo room, and the handy MyKey system for when the kids start driving. Stop by Harrisonburg Ford and take a seat in the Edge today. We’ll get you set up with a test drive so that you can experience the benefits for yourself.
