2011 Ford Flex Interior, Exterior Styling
The Flex isn't making any huge ripples in the style department, though, and that's okay. This is clearly vehicle which prefers function over form. The shape of the vehicle itself is remniscient of early Scion xB's or maybe a dialed back version of the Nissan Cube, with the exterior presenting in all flats. With options such as a two-tone roof, black chrome accessories, or other trim options the vehicle starts to really take on a personality of it's own, but the base model won't be turning any heads by itself.
Inside, the Flex is equal parts roomy and comfortable. Seats are large enough to seat the seven Flex is supposed to accommodate without anybody getting any cramped legs. Both backseat and second row seating is pretty roomy, and we were able to fit six adults into the vehicle without any complaints about space at all. There is plenty of headroom available, which is good if you plan to tote around adults in the thing. Ford has also shown that it still knows how to put lighting to use, something that most auto makers are just getting around to. The instrument panel glows in a soft blue, the cup holders with a soft red, and the contrast just makes the inside all the more visually appealing. Customization options are also plentiful in the interior, meaning you can make the Flex more appealing to you with options like metallic or wood-grain dash trim, and houndstooth-printed cloth seats. Leather seats are also available for those of us without too many little ones to worry about.
