Taking the wheel to Quebec City & l’Isle-aux-Coudres
Summer is made for road trips, right? Recently, I had the chance to test the Ford Edge Sport for a weekend so I decided to go a weekend getaway to Quebec City and Charlevoix with my boyfriend.
My favourite features in the Ford Edge Sport
This humongous Panoramic Vista Roof has to be one of my favourite features. I think all cars should have one. In the Edge, it goes from the very front all the way to the back of the vehicle.
As a huge Apple fan, I’ve been wanting to try CarPlay for a long time. Luckily, Ford Sync 3 supports it so I was able to try it. The integration is very good and you almost feel like you’re in an Apple Car! However, I would like CarPlay to let the user choose between Apple Maps and Google Maps, because, let’s be real, Apple Maps is not at Google Maps level.
The Enhanced Active Park Assist with Forward and Side Sensing Systems is definitely one of my favourite features too. I had already tried in the Ford C-Max Energi and they have definitely improved the system since. It is especially impressive to see a SUV of this size manage to park in parallel —
and this on both sides.

Visiting l’Isle-aux-Coudres with the Ford Edge Sport
Thanks to the Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, we were able to explore a little bit further than with a normal car. Here is the Ford Edge looking good on the beach at Isle-aux-Coudres.
Ending the weekend at Île d’Orléans near Quebec City
Because no weekend to Quebec City is complete without a visit to Île d’Orléans, we ended up going there on our way back to Montreal.
