2014 Ford Edge vs. 2015 Subaru Forester Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Edge than in the Subaru Forester. The Subaru Forester will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Edge.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Edge as you will with the Subaru Forester, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Ford Edge is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Forester. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Edge will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Subaru Forester.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Edge is much wider than the Subaru Forester, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Edge takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Forester.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Ford Edge does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Subaru Forester.

Handling
The Ford Edge has a significantly larger turning radius than the Subaru Forester, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Edge is clearly the choice over the Subaru Forester for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Edge greatly out-muscles the Subaru Forester.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Edge and the Subaru Forester. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Ford Edge as you will in the Subaru Forester.

Warranty
The Ford Edge comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Forester.
