The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
With an unmistakable design, strong performance, and a roomy, comfortable interior, the 2013 Ford Flex proves that three-row crossovers don't have to be boring. The 2013 Honda Pilot looks tough and truck-like from the outside, yet inside it's one of the better family haulers.
