The most recent versions of both models have recently been introduced, which is why there are a lot of Ford Edge vs Honda CR-V reviews right now. Here is one more review that will concentrate on differences between the Honda CR-V and Ford Edge specifications.
Performance is probably the first thing everyone pays attention to, as this parameter determines, how fast will you be able to go. Ford has a definitive win in this category.
While both of them have a front-wheel drive, Edge is equipped with a 245-horsepower intercooled turbo engine. Honda CR-V specs, while also impressive, are not so great – only 184-horsepower regular unleaded engine.
2. Fuel efficiency
This parameter basically points on how much money you will have to spend on gas. Honda wins a competition on this one, as it can drive for 30 miles on a 1 gallon of gas (compared to 24 mpg for Ford).

This is a department, where Honda CR-V problems are obvious. Although this model offers great smartphone integration and touch-screen volume control, there are no real innovations.
Edge, on the other hand, has demonstrated a revolutionary Sync 3 technology, which includes, but not limited to, a great voice controls that will allow you to stay focused on the road.
Although most of the cars nowadays offer and incredible level of safety for both driver and passengers, Ford goes even overboard with it.
Ford Edge reviews praise the cars safety system, which has earned the highest grade on different crash tests. It gains an extra brakes’ stopping power by adding a forward collision system.
