Billed as the company's "most technologically advanced SUV ever", the updated Edge has a new front fascia, a revised grille and restyled LED headlights.

Instead, as well as the new 2.0 litre 235bhp twin-turbo diesel, you will be able to have only a 148bhp diesel with FWD or a 187bhp diesel with 4WD.

The Edge, which has been available to buy in Europe since the second-generation version first hit showrooms back in 2016, comes with a number of safety features, some of which are completely new to the Euro-spec auto.

We talked about technology at the start - and there's plenty of it: daptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Lane Centring Assist, Evasive Steering Assist, and Post-Collision Braking, a new 1000-watt B&O PLAY audio system, a 3D digital instrument cluster, and naturally - Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system.

There are also numerous cameras, radars and ultrasonic sensors that contribute to the adaptive front lighting, blind spot warning, high-beam assist and traffic sign recognition systems.

Spotify planning its own smart speaker?
A Spotify smart speaker could help the company retain and attract subscribers as smart home tech becomes more competitive. If it's able to create its own hardware product, like a smart speaker, it already has millions of potential buyers.

The new Edge is also packed full of camera- and sensor-based driver assistance technologies created to help motorists avoid crashes or at least mitigate them. Which is probably majority, in this vehicle.

Following its global reveal in January, the Euro version introduces a new 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel engine called the EcoBlue, which produces an impressive 175kW.

Also new is the ST-Line trim, which was introduced by Ford previous year across its range to offer buyers cars that look sporty but don't have the high-performance engines found on the full ST models.

Other creature comforts available on the vehicle that buyers will appreciate include a panoramic sunroof, heated front and rear seats, a Bang and Olufsen sound system and digital instrument display.

It is also available in 150PS and 190PS outputs.
