The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Ford Flex remains a singularly boxy and handsome SUV, with excellent interior room and safety scores. The 2016 Honda Pilot has axed its hard edges: it's once again a smooth, capable family wagon, one that raises the bar for refinement.
