So, interestingly enough, there are compact crossovers, full size SUVs and now, there are what the auto world is referring to as many ‘tweeners out there. The Ford Flex is a great example of just that and they are great for capacity without forcing upon you a larger exterior than you feel you need. Here’s a bit of elaboration from the car connection. “The mid-size crossover segment is full of ‘tweeners. Larger and more spacious than compact crossovers, but smaller and more manageable than three-row crossovers meant for family duty, these vehicles offer versatility with sophistication and flair.”
Two great examples of those type vehicles, the Ford Flex and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, take slightly different approaches to satisfy mid-size crossover buyers. Both offer front- and all-wheel drive and turbocharged 4-cylinder power, but the Ford Flex in Collinsville near Glen Carbon actually does a better job providing for performance under the hood, we found this to be true in researching both vehicles recently. We learned all about the twin turbocharged V6 variant at your local Ford Flex Dealer in IL.
Critics like both options when it comes to style, “Both are good-looking crossovers, though we prefer the Flex for its premium, athletic aesthetic. It has some great surfacing and details that wouldn’t be out of place in a BMW. Inside, there is a warm and upscale yet formal ambiance.” So, if you are considering on of these two crossovers, the opinion from experts online seems to lean you in the direction of the Ford Flex in Collinsville. You will get a stronger looking vehicle with more power under the hood. All other things are comparable between these two vehicles, safety, quality of materials, quiet and comfortable ride plus cargo space. All things being equal everywhere else, we encourage you to consider the Ford Flex near Glen Carbon for your next family crossover.
