If You Are Thinking About Making the 2014 Ford Flex Your Next Family Vehicle…
For families who need a vehicle that has a lot of space, the 2014 Ford Flex is one of the countless choices Boulder families have to consider. A large crossover SUV, the Flex is also equipped with a few of the latest standard features, including:
- Ford MyTouch interface
- iPhone integration
While the 2014 Ford Flex has some popular features, its competitor the 2014 Honda Crosstour has much more to offer Boulder families. This innovative hatchback offers drivers the spaciousness of a smaller SUV along with affordability and versatility, and it has many standard features that are lacking on the Ford Flex.
To begin with, the 2014 Honda Crosstour is significantly more economical than the Flex, with a lower starting price and superior fuel economy. While the 2014 Ford Flex gets an EPA estimated 25 mpg highway rating, the 2014 Honda Crosstour 2WD EX with the 4-cylinder engine wins out with a 31 mpg highway rating.* The Flex also has a starting MSRP of $29,015, which is significantly more expensive than the Crosstour 2WD EX’s starting MSRP of $27,380.**
If cargo space is a priority, then the new Honda Crosstour is the way to go. While the 2014 Ford Flex may be larger than the 2014 Honda Crosstour, the Crosstour’s innovative design actually provides more cargo space. The Crosstour measures in with a cargo capacity of 25 cubic feet, which is markedly more than the Flex’s 20 cubic feet.
In terms of standard features, the Crosstour is the obvious choice again. While both models come standard with popular features like Bluetooth, iPhone integration, and full power accessories, the Crosstour adds many more standard features to its package. Features that are standard on the Crosstour but are not even available on the Flex include a rearview camera, a power moonroof, fog lights, heated exterior mirrors, a CD changer, variable assisted steering, and front active head restraints for added safety.
