The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
9.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The very family-friendly Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid impress us with their space and versatility, but show no sign of enthusiasm. A singular look, along with top-shelf turbo power and features, earns the 2011 Ford Flex our top score among utility vehicles.
