2015 Ford Edge vs. 2015 Honda Odyssey

Should Mid-Missouri Drivers Consider the 2015 Ford Edge as a Family Vehicle?

The Edge is a recent addition to Ford’s lineup, and the 2015 Edge has recently made its way to the Mid-Missouri streets. But is it the right family vehicle for you, or would you be better off with a minivan in your garage? The Edge has a way to go to compete with minivans, with standard tech features limited to a 4.2-inch touchscreen display. Upgradeable features like Ford Sync and MyFord Touch may make the Edge more competitive, but you’ll need to step up to a higher trim level to gain access to them. The Edge accommodates 73.4 cubic feet of cargo storage as well, but that pales in comparison to modern minivans.

The 2015 Honda Odyssey has room for up to eight, giving you a much larger passenger space than the Edge and has 148.5 cubic feet of maximum cargo space—over double that of the Edge. Standard amenities on the Odyssey LX outdo those on Ford’s crossover as well, with each model coming with SMS texting, Pandora internet radio, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system (the Honda i-MID), Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, a rearview camera, and more without any need to upgrade. Honda has a wide range of great optional amenities as well, with the Touring Elite trim coming with a Honda-exclusive vacuum cleaner—the HondaVac—to keep your minivan spick and span.
