Number of doors
There’s no question that the five-door Ford Edge 3.5 V6 269HP automatic is more usable and if you frequently travel with more than one passenger then it’s the format to go for. The biggest advantage of a five-door vehicle is that it’s not only easier for passengers to climb into the back but it’s also easier to put luggage and cargo into the car when the rear seats are folded down. However, three-door cars like the Toyota FJ Cruiser 4.0 239HP very often look much cooler and for those who rarely have more than one passengers in the car the Toyota might be more appropriate.
