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 Pilot looks more SUV-like in its second edition, but it has the room of a minivan, along with some notable styling miscues and expensive choices to make from the options list. The attractive 2009 Saturn Outlook is a large, comfortable utility vehicle built with families in mind.
