The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Ford Flex is one of the most stylish new crossovers on the market, with great passenger room and enough features to make everyone happy. The minivan buyer prizes space, flexibility and efficiency—and the 2011 Nissan Quest has taken steps back on all those fronts.
