The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
8.4
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 2009 Honda Odyssey doesn’t just have the practicality that’s expected in a minivan; it’s fun to drive, too.
