The Edge’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The MKC’s intermittent wipers change speed with vehicle speed, but can’t turn on and off or change speed based on changing rainfall.
Consumer Reports rated the Edge’s headlight performance “Very Good,” a higher rating than the MKC’s headlights, which were rated “Good.”
To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the Edge Titanium/ST offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The MKC doesn’t offer cornering lights.
