The New Edge Vignale is based on Ford's second-generation premium SUV, available now for the first time in Europe. Originally a coachbuilder established in Italy in 1948, Vignale created unique, low-volume cars based on production vehicles from other manufacturers. And, in keeping with tradition, Ford sought to resurrect the name in 2013 as a new Ford luxury sub-brand.
Vignale cars are now offered through special 'Vignale Lounges' and come with their own after-sales service and staff. The Vignale Onecall service even provides dedicated 24-hour customer support for servicing and other enquiries. Vignale customers can also access special offers for VIP hospitality at high-profile events, and travel offers. As with all Fords that wear the Vignale badge, the new Edge Vignale boasts unique and luxurious styling details made using the highest quality materials.
Bespoke touches set the Edge Vignale's exterior a notch above. Unique 20-inch alloy wheels, bumpers and a hexagonal grill that mirrors the seat design add to the Edge's bold styling. Buyers also have the choice of Nocciola metallic paint that comes exclusive to the Vignale range.
Inside the spacious and well-appointed cabin of the Vignale Edge you will find full grain, luxury Windsor Leather throughout. Carefully selected for its soft touch and exceptional quality, it covers the dashboard, touch points and the seats. Inspired by traditions of Vignale craftsmanship, the seats have quilted panels covered with hexagonal stitching and perforated leather. Active noise Control works to cancel out disruptive sounds waves, such as low frequency engine noise.
The Edge Vignale comes with a 177bhp or 207bhp version of Ford's 2.0-litre Duratorque TDCi diesel engine. Both are available with either a six-speed manual or PowerShift six-speed Automatic gear box. On a combined cycle, these are capable of returning up to 48.7mpg and producing just 149g/km of CO2.
As you would expect from the Vignale brand, the Edge comes with the most advanced technology features. Full smartphone integration and a premium Sony 12-speaker stereo provide total connectivity and entertainment. As does Ford's eight-inch colour Touchscreen with navigation system and Ford SYNC3 Voice Control, driving you in the right direction with minimal distraction. Optional Active Park Assist and a rear parking camera help to steer you into tight car spaces.
A host of safety technologies offer high levels of traction and protection for all occupants. The Edge Vignale uses an intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system that monitors terrain and optimises traction for maximum grip. A Driver Alert system can also sense when you might be suffering from fatigue and warn you to take a break.
