CarReview's Best SUV and Crossover Choices of 2010

Ford Flex Titanium

Ford Flex Titanium EcoBoost AWD: The Flex is perhaps the most creative expression of the modern crossover; especially in upscale Titanium trim. It is looks like nothing else on the road. With the 3.5 liter turbocharged, direct-injection EcoBoost engine, it is startlingly quick and fuel efficient. Because of its relatively low center of gravity, it handles more like a sport wagon than crossover. The interior is stretched minivan efficient and top of the line models carry all of the options and amenities expected in a luxury SUV.

Put it all together and the Flex is fun. It may not be the pinnacle of elegance, but you smile when you walk up to it. You smile when you drive it. You smile when six of your family and friends jump in and are smiling too.

The crossovers listed below represent the best for 2010. Click on any of the names below to learn why they are winners.

Rating: 4.5 stars

“Although it shares the same drivetrain as the Ford Edge and the now seemingly pointless Taurus X, the Flex brings a level of refinement, quality, uniqueness and sticker price that the other two Ford products can’t even come close to matching.”

    A few crossovers that nearly made onto our top 5 list was the VW Tiguan, Ford Escape, and Subaru Outback.

    One crossover that almost made the top 5, but got dropped was the new 2011 Kia Sportage. The exterior and interior design was done really well, and it is a great value with all the goodies that are included as standard equipment. One thing we hated was the strong on-center feel of the electric steering and the stiff suspension setup.

    The Q5 *is* a no brainer. Great review and great vehicle.

    I’ve driven a few of these cars and the Ford Flex is the standout here.

    It is just so unexpected with its power, economy an handling. It drives like a touring car. Interior is awesome btw!

    I love the styling but understand it can be polarizing. It’s kind of square and ganster looking. Do you folks like the styling? Do women like it? Hmmm…
