2019 Ford Flex

Passenger Space: There’s room for up to seven in the 2019 Ford Flex. The seats in the first two rows are roomy, though not very supportive. Third-row seating is just ample enough for adults, though they probably wouldn't be happy back there on long road trips.

Cargo Volume (Max Cargo Volume: 83.2 cu ft): The Flex can hold up to 20 cubic feet of cargo with all three rows of seats up and 43.2 cubic feet with the third row folded. Fold the middle and back row down, and you’ll open up 83.2 cubic feet of space. Those numbers are close to the class average. The Flex has a lower floor than most rivals, however, plus a wide hatch and boxy design that makes loading and unloading a breeze.

Family-Friendly Features: The Flex includes a few features that families will like, including Ford MyKey, which configures the vehicle for teen drivers by ensuring that all safety technology is enabled, the stereo is muted until front seat occupants buckle up, and the low fuel light comes on before the level is critically low. It also allows parents to set a maximum speed limit, maximum audio system volume, and restrict the driver’s ability to disable the car’s traction control.

Available on the Flex is an infotainment system that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
