I've wanted an Edge since they came out, but couldn't justify spending the cash for all the features I wanted. Since I retired, I have a lot of time to search the interweb for things and stuff and I found one well within my price range. It's a 2016, FWD, SEL, Panoramic roof, 27,242 miles, very clean, except for some very minor interior scrapes on the lower portion of the drivers door where they pushed it open with their shoe, and a scrape on the right front bumper. They were asking $21,500. It was a California car, business lease, bought at the Southern Cal auction and sold in Tempe, AZ. Many of the Edge's in the Phoenix area, with this mileage, were going for 23-26K, so I wondered why this was priced so low. The salesman said it was because of the scrape, but he offered to have it repaired and painted and it looks perfect. I just returned from a 5000 mile road trip and the car ran great. I drove from AZ to MN through southern Colorado, Pikes Peak, Wyoming, Black Hills and 2 lane Hwy 4 across S Dakota to MN. Drove around the Twin Cities, up to Duluth and Interstate home to AZ. Overall, I averaged 30.3 mpg's for the entire trip, which I was very pleased with. In the Phoenix area, there are a lot of big trucks, semi's and everyone drives really fast, so I like the higher profile from my Fusion, plus I can now take trips into the desert without clearance issues.
I traded a 2017 Fusion and have no regrets, the Edge is so much more vehicle, better visibility, more cabin room and plenty of space for cargo.
