Looking for a styling statement in your next family vehicle? Nothing on the road looks like the 2011 Ford Flex. Period. Borrowing cues from concept vehicles to the Land Rover Range Rover and even the MINI Cooper, the Flex has only grown better-looking to us. The details stamped into its tailgate and doors, the hereditary wagon charm, and the slab-sidedness all knit together in a shape that’s decidedly anti-minivan. Adding to the charm are touches and frills lifted from the MINI playbook; you can order a brushed-metal tailgate, a white roof and mirrors, chrome trim, or a new Titanium package that darkens the chrome and wears a distinct front bumper, along with blackout treatment for side pillars.

Substance hangs with style inside the Flex, too. The instrument panel sits low and the gauges glow with a blue tint—and the cup holders in soft red. The controls are grouped easily and logically. Like the exterior, the interior comes in a wide range of choices, so you can opt for a handsome houndstooth check on the seats or rich leather to go with wood grain or metallic trim on the dash. A round analog clock on the dash of the navigation-equipped Flex clearly pays homage to the MINI—down to the stamped-in ribs that flank it.

Conclusion

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
