2017 Ford Edge vs. 2017 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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Ford Edge and the Subaru Forester.

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. Both the Ford Edge and the Subaru Forester have similar Destination Charges.

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. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Edge, which is slightly longer than 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.

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. The Ford Edge has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Subaru Forester.

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