The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Ford Flex is a spacious family hauler with a style all its own. It lacks the fuel economy of some of the competitors, but beauty doesn't come without effort. Blending sport and utility like almost no other SUV, the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is impressive in any configuration.
