2015 Ford Flex vs. Its Competition

2015 Ford Flex
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Ford Flex is a minivan alternative, and its excellent interior knocks most of its competitors out the water.

The Lincoln MKT is related to the Flex, but wears silkier styling that makes it feel a little less hip.

The Honda Pilot's interior feels comparatively cheap, though it drives well and can handle off-pavement duties better than the Flex.

The Buick Enclave is comfortable and curvaceous, but still doesn't quite feel as luxurious as the Ford.

The Range Rover Sport may seem out of place here, but for styling's sake, it's worth considering.

Finally, there's the Chrysler Town & Country, which offers legitimate practicality in an unmatched capacity.

But, you have to fess up to minivan ownership with this one, which might be reason enough to buy the Flex.
