Safety

Having adequate safety features is a plus to any vehicle. Compared the Ford Edge, the 2018 Honda CR-V wins out due to its Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), standard on EX, EX-L and Touring models. The CMBS™ is so advanced that it can not only detect potential collisions and alert the driver to them, but prevent them as well. Using forward facing sensors, the CMBS™ first detects a potential collision and alerts the driver. If the driver fails to react, the CMBS™ will apply the brakes at full force to prevent or lessen the impact of the collision. The Ford Edge has a collision alert but does not have the automatic braking feature. The Honda CR-V also has a driver alert monitor available on the EX, EX-L and Touring models. This monitor can detect erratic driving behaviors, usually associated with an inattentive driver, and alert the driver to possibly take a break. The Ford Edge does not have this feature.

Fuel Economy

Having a fuel-efficient vehicle can mean more money in your pockets and more time spent on the road. Compared to the Ford Edge, the Honda CR-V has a better fuel economy compared to comparable engines.
