Ford has updated the Edge with a suite of new driver assistance systems and a new 238PS diesel engine.
Revealed in sporty ST-Line trim, the new model benefits from 20-inch alloy wheels, sportier suspension and all-wheel-drive.
Post-Collision Braking, Evasive Steering Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centring Assist make their debut on the model.
Further driver assistance technologies that use cameras, radars, and ultrasonic sensors to reduce stress for drivers include Adaptive Front Lighting System, Blind Spot Information System, Glare-Free Highbeam, Intelligent Speed Limiter, Lane Keeping Alert, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Traffic Sign Recognition.
Driving and parking in towns and built-up areas is made more comfortable and less demanding with features including Cross Traffic Alert, Ford Adaptive Steering, Active Park Assist with Perpendicular Parking, Side Parking Aid and Park Out Assist that helps drivers pull out of parking spaces.
Official fuel consumption and emissions figures have yet to be announced, but Ford says the new powertrain is designed to maximise efficiency.
It is also available in 150PS and 190PS outputs.
An eight-inch infotainment screen incorporates Apple Carplay and Android Auto, plus an option 1000w B&O speaker system.
