The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Ford Flex is one of the most stylish new crossovers, with great passenger room and more features than some minivans. The 2010 GMC Acadia strikes a good balance: more useful than full-size SUVs for passenger duty, yet a lot better-looking than a minivan.
