At Tamaroff Honda, we wanted to take a deeper look at the 2017 Honda CR-V and 2017 Ford Edge to see which SUV is truly the best on the market. Both models are popular for their compact size and advanced technology, but you’ll want to hear a little more about their similarities and differences before making your final choice. Let’s examine the two models, head-to-head, and see what we uncover!


Many drivers view safety as the number one priority when choosing a vehicle. Both the CR-V and the Edge provide tons of exceptional features for your protection: front and side-impact airbag systems, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, tons of driver’s assistance options, and more. But, the two performed quite differently when tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Honda CR-V had an overall evaluation of “Good”, which means you’re well protected in your SUV. The Ford Edge didn’t fare as well, only scoring an overall rating of “Acceptable.” We think the scores speak for themselves!

Fuel Economy

P3: Higher fuel economy numbers lead to a happier wallet and a happier planet! Luckily, the Honda CR-V has a wonderfully efficient ride. And in addition to stellar fuel economy numbers, the CR-V also only requires regular gasoline. Let’s crunch the numbers

  • Two-Wheel Drive CR-V models can reach up to an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.* Comparably, the Edge maxes out at an EPA-estimated 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
  • Four-Wheel Drive CR-V models provide an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway*, while the Edge only reaches an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
